LLVM --
From Valve's interest in the LLDB debugger to many other firms also being interested in LLVM's debugger as an alternative to GDB on Linux, LLDB is getting into very usable shape for 64-bit Linux systems.

Last week was the EuroLLVM conference in London. Over on LLVMWeekly.org are the notes from the two-day LLVM event.

It was shared during the event that Google has about 11 engineers working on LLDB and there's also developers at Imagination Technologies, Intel, and Linaro also working on bettering LLDB for Linux. With the latest LLDB code, all major features are working on Linux x86_64 while work is still underway on fully supporting ARM64 Linux.

It's great to see LLDB continuing to gain functionality and interest from developers and companies. LLDB is more modern than GDB and offers a number of interesting use-cases alongside LLVM.
