LLVM 3.1 delayed
The upcoming version 3.1 release of the LLVM compiler infrastructure has been delayed. The major update was originally expected to arrive on Monday 14 May but appears to have been quietly postponed by its developers for unknown reasons. However, in a response on the LLVM Development mailing list, developer Bill Wendling, who works for Apple which partially sponsors the project, says that the final release will be available "shortly".
LLVM 3.1 will be a major update that includes a new AddressSanitizer tool for detecting memory errors and an ARM Integrated Assembler as well as various LLVM IR (intermediate representation), Core, Optimiser and Machine Code performance improvements. A full list of new features coming in LLVM 3.1 can be found in the preliminary release notes. LLVM is made available under the terms of the University of Illinois Open Source License, an OSI-approved license.
