The first release candidate to LLVM 3.5.1 is now available.

Tom Stellard of AMD released the LLVM 3.5.1-rc1 release prior to the weekend to solicit testing prior to officially putting out this first point release to LLVM 3.5. Stellard in large part continues to organize these point releases for yielding more frequent stable LLVM updates to help out users and distribution packagers in getting out AMD GPU LLVM back-end fixes and improvements.

LLVM 3.5.1 is expected for release later in December. LLVM 3.5.1 has the back-end improvement bit for AMD native object code support for Radeon among other improvements.

Those wishing to help test LLVM 3.5.1 for the various supported platforms and targets can find out more information via this mailing list thread. Meanwhile, LLVM 3.6 is the next major version under development and it should arrive at some point in early 2015 but its schedule has yet to be officially determined.
