Written by Michael Larabel in LLVM on 23 February 2017 at 07:28 AM EST. Add A Comment
LLVM 4.0 was supposed to have been released by now, but it's running late due to open blocker bugs.

Hans Wennborg commented on the mailing list that while the release should have happened on 21 February, serving as release manager, he hasn't tagged the release yet due to open blocker bugs.

As of writing there are seven blocker bugs still to be addressed ranging from a Clang issue to some wrong code issues and assertions. Details via this mailing list post.

There are patches for testing with some of these blockers and Wennborg hopes to rally the LLVM troops to help in this last-minute review and testing work to hopefully get LLVM/Clang 4.0 shipped in the days ahead.
