Extra! Extra! Read all about the LLVM/Clang 3.2 release.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances we would like to materialize
this 3.2 Dragon by December the 16th, so here are couple of dates
to remember.


 All major features for the 3.2 release should be finished
(feature complete) by the November 29th.

After November 29, we will accept only bug fixes and patches
for *release blocking* issues which do not change the functionality
of LLVM and Clang. i.e., if your feature isn't finished, then
it may have to be turned off by default.

 After the branching date on November 11th it will be up to the
code maintainers to approve any patches. However, I will make
the decision whether to include the patch in the release.



This release can not happen without you! So if you would like to
be a tester, do not think twice about it and please get in touch
with me by email.
