 Major New Features
-- A new Implicit Conversion Sanitizer (``-fsanitize=implicit-conversion``) group
-  was added. Please refer to the :ref:`release-notes-ubsan` section of the
-  release notes for the details.
 Improvements to Clang's diagnostics
-- ``-Wc++98-compat-extra-semi`` is a new flag, which was previously inseparable
-  from ``-Wc++98-compat-pedantic``. The latter still controls the new flag.
-- ``-Wextra-semi`` now also controls ``-Wc++98-compat-extra-semi``.
-  Please do note that if you pass ``-Wno-c++98-compat-pedantic``, it implies
-  ``-Wno-c++98-compat-extra-semi``, so if you want that diagnostic, you need
-  to explicitly re-enable it (e.g. by appending ``-Wextra-semi``).
-- ``-Wself-assign`` and ``-Wself-assign-field`` were extended to diagnose
-  self-assignment operations using overloaded operators (i.e. classes).
-  If you are doing such an assignment intentionally, e.g. in a unit test for
-  a data structure, the first warning can be disabled by passing
-  ``-Wno-self-assign-overloaded``, also the warning can be suppressed by adding
-  ``*&`` to the right-hand side or casting it to the appropriate reference type.
 Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release
-- Clang binary and libraries have been renamed from 7.0 to 7.
-  For example, the ``clang`` binary will be called ``clang-7``
-  instead of ``clang-7.0``.
-- Clang implements a collection of recent fixes to the C++ standard's definition
-  of "standard-layout". In particular, a class is only considered to be
-  standard-layout if all base classes and the first data member (or bit-field)
-  can be laid out at offset zero.
-- Clang's handling of the GCC ``packed`` class attribute in C++ has been fixed
-  to apply only to non-static data members and not to base classes. This fixes
-  an ABI difference between Clang and GCC, but creates an ABI difference between
-  Clang 7 and earlier versions. The old behavior can be restored by setting
-  ``-fclang-abi-compat`` to ``6`` or earlier.
-- Clang implements the proposed resolution of LWG issue 2358, along with the
-  `corresponding change to the Itanium C++ ABI
-  <https://github.com/itanium-cxx-abi/cxx-abi/pull/51>`_, which make classes
-  containing only unnamed non-zero-length bit-fields be considered non-empty.
-  This is an ABI break compared to prior Clang releases, but makes Clang
-  generate code that is ABI-compatible with other compilers. The old
-  behavior can be restored by setting ``-fclang-abi-compat`` to ``6`` or
-  lower.
-- An existing tool named ``diagtool`` has been added to the release. As the
-  name suggests, it helps with dealing with diagnostics in ``clang``, such as
-  finding out the warning hierarchy, and which of them are enabled by default
-  or for a particular compiler invocation.
-- By default, Clang emits an address-significance table into
-  every ELF object file when using the integrated assembler.
-  Address-significance tables allow linkers to implement `safe ICF
-  <https://research.google.com/pubs/archive/36912.pdf>`_ without the false
-  positives that can result from other implementation techniques such as
-  relocation scanning. The ``-faddrsig`` and ``-fno-addrsig`` flags can be
-  used to control whether to emit the address-significance table.
 - ...
 New Compiler Flags
-- ``-fstrict-float-cast-overflow`` and ``-fno-strict-float-cast-overflow``.
-  When a floating-point value is not representable in a destination integer
-  type, the code has undefined behavior according to the language standard. By
-  default, Clang will not guarantee any particular result in that case. With the
-  'no-strict' option, Clang attempts to match the overflowing behavior of the
-  target's native float-to-int conversion instructions.
-- ``-fforce-emit-vtables`` and ``-fno-force-emit-vtables``.
-   In order to improve devirtualization, forces emitting of vtables even in
-   modules where it isn't necessary. It causes more inline virtual functions
-   to be emitted.
 - ...
 Deprecated Compiler Flags

 Modified Compiler Flags
-- Before Clang 7, we prepended the `#` character to the `--autocomplete`
-  argument to enable cc1 flags. For example, when the `-cc1` or `-Xclang` flag
-  is in the :program:`clang` invocation, the shell executed
-  `clang --autocomplete=#-<flag to be completed>`. Clang 7 now requires the
-  whole invocation including all flags to be passed to the `--autocomplete` like
-  this: `clang --autocomplete=-cc1,-xc++,-fsyn`.

 Attribute Changes in Clang

-  sanity, however it is otherwise compatible with existing code using this
-  feature for GCC. Consult the documentation for the target attribute for more

 Windows Support
-- clang-cl's support for precompiled headers has been much improved:
-   - When using a pch file, clang-cl now no longer redundantly emits inline
-     methods that are already stored in the obj that was built together with
-     the pch file (matching cl.exe).  This speeds up builds using pch files
-     by around 30%.
-   - The /Ycfoo.h and /Yufoo.h flags can now be used without /FIfoo.h when
-     foo.h is instead included by an explicit `#include` directive. This means
-     Visual Studio's default stdafx.h setup now uses precompiled headers with
-     clang-cl.

 OpenMP Support in Clang
-- Clang gained basic support for OpenMP 4.5 offloading for NVPTX target.
-   To compile your program for NVPTX target use the following options:
-   `-fopenmp -fopenmp-targets=nvptx64-nvidia-cuda` for 64 bit platforms or
-   `-fopenmp -fopenmp-targets=nvptx-nvidia-cuda` for 32 bit platform.
-- Passing options to the OpenMP device offloading toolchain can be done using
-  the `-Xopenmp-target=<triple> -opt=val` flag. In this way the `-opt=val`
-  option will be forwarded to the respective OpenMP device offloading toolchain
-  described by the triple. For example passing the compute capability to
-  the OpenMP NVPTX offloading toolchain can be done as follows:
-  `-Xopenmp-target=nvptx64-nvidia-cuda -march=sm_60`. For the case when only one
-  target offload toolchain is specified under the `-fopenmp-targets=<triples>`
-  option, then the triple can be skipped: `-Xopenmp-target -march=sm_60`.
-- Other bugfixes.
 CUDA Support in Clang
-- Clang will now try to locate the CUDA installation next to :program:`ptxas`
-  in the `PATH` environment variable. This behavior can be turned off by passing
-  the new flag `--cuda-path-ignore-env`.
-- Clang now supports generating object files with relocatable device code. This
-  feature needs to be enabled with `-fcuda-rdc` and my result in performance
-  penalties compared to whole program compilation. Please note that NVIDIA's
-  :program:`nvcc` must be used for linking.

 Undefined Behavior Sanitizer (UBSan)
-* A new Implicit Conversion Sanitizer (``-fsanitize=implicit-conversion``) group
-  was added.
-  Currently, only one type of issues is caught - implicit integer truncation
-  (``-fsanitize=implicit-integer-truncation``), also known as integer demotion.
-  While there is a ``-Wconversion`` diagnostic group that catches this kind of
-  issues, it is both noisy, and does not catch **all** the cases.

-      unsigned char store = 0;
-      bool consume(unsigned int val);
-      void test(unsigned long val) {
-        if (consume(val)) // the value may have been silently truncated.
-          store = store + 768; // before addition, 'store' was promoted to int.
-        (void)consume((unsigned int)val); // OK, the truncation is explicit.
-      }
-  Just like other ``-fsanitize=integer`` checks, these issues are **not**
-  undefined behaviour. But they are not *always* intentional, and are somewhat
-  hard to track down. This group is **not** enabled by ``-fsanitize=undefined``,
-  but the ``-fsanitize=implicit-integer-truncation`` check
-  is enabled by ``-fsanitize=integer``.
