LLVM 2.3 is now officially released! You can download it from
http://llvm.org/releases/ or view the release notes here:
LLVM 2.3 includes many bug fixes, vastly improved support for the X86-64
ABI, support for SSE 4.1 on X86 chips, support for functions that return
multiple results in memory, a new 'llvmc' tool, support for atomic
operations, improved gfortran support, and many new and improved optimizer
and code generator passes. Overall, LLVM 2.3 generates significantly
better code in less time than LLVM 2.2, which was released less than 4
months ago - an amazing rate of progress. Please see the release notes
for more details.
A new addition to the LLVM family is "vmkit". vmkit is an implementation
of a Java Virtual Machine and a CLI Virtual Machine (".NET") that use the
Just-In-Time compiler of LLVM, as well as many facilities provided by the
LLVM framework. The VMs have similar performance to industrial and top
open-source VMs, thanks to the LLVM JIT and optimization passes. vmkit is
not included as part of LLVM 2.3, but is available from the LLVM SVN
server under the standard LLVM license.
Planning for the 2008 LLVM Developer Meeting is well underway for August
1, 2008 in Cupertino, CA, USA. If you are interested in attending, please
see http://llvm.org/devmtg/ details.
