LLVM --
The second release candidate to the forthcoming LLVM 4.0 compiler stack and Clang 4.0 C/C++ compiler front-end are now available.

On Wednesday, LLVM release manager Hans Wennborg announced LLVM 4.0 RC2 had been tagged and since then the various contributors have been uploading their binaries and test results.

This second release candidate is coming about one week later than originally planned. The original release schedule puts the LLVM/Clang 4.0.0 release date around 21 February, so we'll see if that still holds. It should be an exciting update anyhow, going up against GCC 7.1 due to be released in the next month or two. I'll be posting some more LLVM/Clang 4.0 Linux benchmarks shortly.
