Hi Everyone,

LLVM 2.5 is live: you can download it here:
http://llvm.org/releases/ and read about it here:

LLVM 2.5 includes an amazing collection of bug fixes, performance  
improvements (both in the compiler itself and in the generated code)  
and new features.  Some highlights include a new XCore backend,  
significantly improved llvm-gcc GFortran support, code generator  
support for arbitrary sized integers (e.g. i71), support for acting on  
overflow of integer operations, an amazing new "Writing an LLVM  
Compiler Backend" document, and many many other things.  Please read  
the release notes for details.

In addition to this release, there are a number of exciting projects  
that work with and build upon the LLVM 2.5 foundation, but are not  
included as an official part of the release.  These include the new  
Clang C/ObjC front-end, the VMKit Java VM and .NET VM, the Pure  
functional programming language, the "LDC" LLVM D Compiler, Roadsend  
PHP compiler, and many others.  Short status updates for these  
projects are included in the LLVM 2.5 release notes, and there are  
plenty of other projects using LLVM.

If you have questions or comments about this release, please contact  
the LLVMdev mailing list!
