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
