The release of LLVM 3.7 is imminent.

Days after preparing the 3.7-RC3 release, Hans Wennborg of Google has announced the release of 3.7-RC3.

Wennborg mentioned in today's release announcement, "We are getting very, very close to the final release, so if you were planning to do any testing before this ships, now is probably the last chance. Patches to the release notes and documentation are still welcome, but otherwise it's strictly critical regression fixing at this stage."

LLVM 3.7 is bringing important AMDGPU back-end updates, OpenMP 3.1 compliance, and many other changes that I'll more closely detail in a LLVM 3.7 / Clang 3.7 feature overview on Phoronix in the next day or two. Overall LLVM/Clang 3.7 is going to be a very exciting release and is the first we had covered on a daily SVN/Git benchmarking basis over at LinuxBenchmarking.com.
