[News] LLVM 2.6 is Released

Hash: SHA1

LLVM 2.6 Released, Clang Is Now Production Ready

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 2.6 of LLVM, the Low-Level Virtual 
| Machine, has been released. This modular 
| compiler infrastructure, which can replace 
| many parts of the GNU Compiler Collection and 
| go far beyond the conventional roles as a 
| code compiler such as being used within 
| Apple's Mac OS X OpenGL implementation for 
| providing optimizations and is similarly 
| going to be used within Gallium3D, has taken 
| a major leap forward with the 2.6 release. 



GCC vs. LLVM-GCC Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| Last Friday we published Mac OS X 10.6 benchmarks and then on Monday they
| were joined by Ubuntu 9.10 vs. Mac OS X 10.6 benchmarks. One of the requests
| that has come up since publishing those articles are to carry out a set of
| tests comparing the performance of LLVM and LLVM-GCC. With Apple's Snow
| Leopard release, some parts of the operating system were built using LLVM-GCC
| for optimized performance, although this compiler is not yet matured. In this
| article we have a set of 12 benchmarks comparing GCC to LLVM-GCC.


Portable Linux future using LLVM

,----[ Quote ]
| Imagine a single Linux distribution that adapts to whatever hardware you run
| it on. When run on an Atom netbook, all the software shapes and optimizes to
| the feature set and processor characteristics of the specific version of
| Atom. Want to run it as a VM on a new Nehalem-based server? No problem, it
| re-shapes to fit the Nehalem (Core i7) architecture. And here, when I
| say "re-shape", I don't mean at the GUI level. Rather, I mean the software is
| effectively re-targeted for your processor's architecture, like it had been
| re-compiled.


LLVM 2.5 Released, Receives Numerous Improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| The LLVM (Low-Level Virtual Machine) still isn't a big competitor to GCC
| since the Clang compiler front-end remains unfinished, but the LLVM folks
| have issued a version 2.5 release. LLVM 2.5 is made up of a bunch of bug
| fixes, a new XCore back-end, performance improvements (in the compiler and
| its generated code), new development documentation, and plenty more new work.


[llvm-announce] LLVM 2.4 Release!

,----[ Quote ]
| LLVM 2.4 includes many bug fixes, much faster compile times at -O0,
| substantially better code generation in various cases, a new PIC16 target,
| new IR features, and numerous other improvements and features (see the
| release notes for details).



[llvm-announce] LLVM 2.2 Release!

,----[ Quote ]
| LLVM 2.2 includes hundreds of bug fixes, many improvements to llvm-gcc 4.2
| (which is now the recommended front-end), a new (beta) Cell SPU backend,
| and a large variety of optimizer and codegen changes that allow LLVM 2.2
| to produce even better code than before.  LLVM 2.2 has compiled many
| millions of lines of C, C++ and Objective C code, and the llvm-gcc 4.2
| Ada and Fortran front-ends are even starting to work.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
