LLVM Confirms Its New Major Version Bumping Scheme

LLVM developers are moving ahead with their new versioning scheme where they will always be bumping the major version component with each six-month release. Thus LLVM 4.0 and LLVM 5.0 are expected in 2017.

Earlier this month we wrote about LLVM moving to the new versioning scheme with next February's LLVM 4.0 release. The scheme is basically similar to the versioning scheme made popular by Chrome with always bumping the major version component. The patch version component will be updated for the LLVM point releases.

Those wanting to learn more about LLVM's versioning plans can read this blog post published yesterday by the project to clear up any confusion over the matter.
