About the best "roadmap" we have is the list of enhancements in


Other sources of information are llvmdev mailing list and the IRC

I have no idea. Perhaps someone else can comment.

For multi-threading, one of the GSoC projects intends to add some
parallelism features to HLVM/LLVM this summer.

We're switching to Subversion in < 1 week, if that's what you mean.  Or
did you have some other meaning for "versioning" ?

It would be nice if there was a better road map so that users could see
what features are being worked on.  At the very least, a page with a
list of Bugzilla #s, title, owner, and expected release would be useful.

Since it involves disclosure from developers, I will raise this topic at
the developer's meeting for discussion to see if there is interest in
maintaining such information.
