    Default Clang Gets Boosted By The Boost Libraries

    Phoronix: Clang Gets Boosted By The Boost Libraries

    Clang, the C/Objective-C/C++ compiler front-end for the Low-Level Virtual Machine, and LLVM itself have a lot to be proud of lately. LLVM 2.7 was recently released with many new features, LLVM now has its own libstdc++ replacement, and LLVM is finding itself used in many places from a JIT engine in a Flash player to providing software acceleration in Gallium3D. The latest accomplishment for Clang is that the C++ library can now build the Boost libraries...

    KDE is another major target, although it is dependent on Qt, so we will not know if Clang has any issues building it until the issues building Qt are resolved.
