+Changes to the JIT APIs
+* Added a new C++ JIT API called On Request Compilation, or ORC.
+ ORC is a new JIT API inspired by MCJIT but designed to be more testable, and
+ easier to extend with new features. A key new feature already in tree is lazy,
+ function-at-a-time compilation for X86. Also included is a reimplementation of
+ MCJITâs API and behavior (OrcMCJITReplacement). MCJIT itself remains in tree,
+ and continues to be the default JIT ExecutionEngine, though new users are
+ encouraged to try ORC out for their projects. (A good place to start is the
+ new ORC tutorials under llvm/examples/kaleidoscope/orc).
