Hello LLVM People, Welcome to LLVM 3.1! Get it here: http://llvm.org/releases/ or read about it: http://llvm.org/releases/3.1/docs/ReleaseNotes.html This release represents approximately 6 months of development over LLVM 3.0, delivers a vast range of improvements and new features. Some of the most visible features include greatly expanded C++'11 support in Clang (including lambdas, initializer lists, constexpr, user-defined literals, and atomics); AddressSanitizer, a fast memory error detection tool which uses instrumentation to find bugs; "instruction bundles" support in the late code generator, allowing much better support for VLIW targets; an ARM integrated assembler which speeds up ARM compile time and enables new features for the ARM target; major enhancements to the MIPS backend (including support for MIPS64); a new port for the Qualcomm Hexagon VLIW processor, Python bindings, and much much more. In addition to major features like these, this release includes the usual broad range of performance enhancements, bug fixes and other enhancements. This release is also the first release qualified by the release team to target ARM processors. For more details, please see the full release notes linked above. This release would not be possible without our volunteer release team! Thanks to our release manager Bill Wendling, as well as Duncan Sands, Anton Korobeynikov, Wei-Ren Chen, Aleksander Balicki, Pawel Worach, Nikola Smiljanic, Ehsan Akhgari, and Mandaris Moore for their work to qualify and shepherd the release. If you have questions or comments about this release, please contact the LLVMdev mailing list! Onward to LLVM 3.2! -Chris LLVM 3.0 Release Announcement: http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/llvm-announce/2011-December/000039.html
