Phoronix: LLVM 2.6 Released, Clang Is Now Production Ready
Version 2.6 of LLVM, the Low-Level Virtual Machine, has been released. This modular compiler infrastructure, which can replace many parts of the GNU Compiler Collection and go far beyond the conventional roles as a code compiler such as being used within Apple's Mac OS X OpenGL implementation for providing optimizations and is similarly going to be used within Gallium3D, has taken a major leap forward with the 2.6 release. LLVM 2.6 includes better x86_64 code generation, new code generators for multiple architectures, support for SSE 4.2, improved optimizations, and perhaps most notably it is the first release to include Clang where it's now at a "production quality" status for C and Objective-C on x86...
