LLVM Weekly - #20, May 19th 2014

Welcome to the twentieth issue of LLVM Weekly, a weekly newsletter (published every Monday) covering developments in LLVM, Clang, and related projects. LLVM Weekly is brought to you by Alex Bradbury.

Please send any tips or feedback to asb@asbradbury.org, or @llvmweekly or @asbradbury on Twitter.

This week's issue is perhaps a little less thorough than normal. I've been in San Francisco most of the week for Maker Faire this weekend, where I was at the Raspberry Pi booth with some other Foundation members. As this issue goes out, I'll be enjoying my last day in SF before heading to the airport for the long flight home and the ensuing jetlag.

News and articles from around the web

The WebKit blog features an excellent and detailed article about the new Fourth Tier LLVM JIT which sheds light on the how and why.

The Neu framework has recently been announced. It is a C++11 framework, collection of programming languages and software system designed for artificial intelligence applications and technical computing in general. It makes use of the LLVM MC JIT for its NPL language as well as generating high performance neural networks.
