Subject: LLVM 3.3 Release!
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.compilers.llvm.announce
Date: Monday 17th June 2013 22:22:53 UTC (over 4 years ago)
LLVM 3.3 is now available! Get it here: http://llvm.org/releases/

or read about it here: 
http://llvm.org/releases/3.3/docs/ReleaseNotes.html

LLVM 3.3 is a big release: it adds new targets for the AArch64 and AMD R600
GPU architectures, adds support for IBM's z/Architecture S390 systems, and
major enhancements for the PowerPC backend (including support for PowerPC
2.04/2.05/2.06 instructions, and an integrated assembler) and MIPS targets.

Performance of code generated by LLVM 3.3 is substantially improved: the
auto-vectorizer produces much better code in many cases and is on by
default at -O3, a new SLP vectorizer is available, and many general
improvements landed in this release. Independent evaluations show that LLVM
3.3's performance exceeds that of LLVM 3.2 and of its primary competition
on many benchmarks.

3.3 is also a major milestone for the Clang frontend: it is now fully
C++'11 feature complete.  At this point, Clang is the only compiler to
support the full C++'11 standard, including important C++'11 library
features like std::regex.  Clang now supports Unicode characters in
identifiers, the Clang Static Analyzer supports several new checkers and
can perform interprocedural analysis across C++ constructor/destructor
boundaries, and Clang even has a nice "C++'11 Migrator" tool to help
upgrade code to use C++'11 features and a "Clang Format" tool that plugs
into vim and emacs (among others) to auto-format your code.

LLVM 3.3 is the result of an incredible number of people working together
over the last six months, but this release would not be possible without
our volunteer release team!  Thanks to Bill Wendling for shepherding the
release, and to Ben Pope, Dimitry Andric, Nikola Smiljanic, Renato Golin,
Duncan Sands, Arnaud A. de Grandmaison, Sebastian Dre├čler, Sylvestre
Ledru, Pawel Worach, Tom Stellard, Kevin Kim, and Erik Verbruggen for all
of their contributions.

If you have questions or comments about this release, please contact the
LLVMdev mailing list!  Onward to LLVM 3.4!

-Chris
