The tentative release notes still say otherwise: "LLVM 3.0 will be the 
last release of llvm-gcc." (http://llvm.org/docs/ReleaseNotes.html)

I understand that llvm-gcc is being phased out in favour of dragonegg, 
but (at least according to its own website) dragonegg is still a bit 
rough around the edges and requires a patched gcc 4.5 to work. So 
llvm-gcc still serves an important role, if only for the Fortran and Ada
