Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to announce that LLVM has a new compiler-rt subproject.   
This project implements low-level compiler library functions provided  
by "libgcc".   It also includes the Apple "Blocks" runtime library,  
but it is not currently well integrated into the build system.  If you  
are interested in finding out more, we have a simple web page  
available here: http://compiler-rt.llvm.org/

The code in this project is far enough along to support various darwin  
platforms, but we'd really like to see others contribute to it to  
increase its portability and breadth of coverage.  Many of the  
routines included are already significantly higher performance than  
the ones in libgcc, and the framework is there to add new routines for  
other targets.

Many people contributed code to this, including:
  Howard Hinnant
  Steve Canon
  Nick Kledzik
  Daniel Dunbar

Thanks for their hard work!
