I'm in the Bay Area this week for the 7th RISC-V Workshop, where I'll be presenting about the RISC-V LLVM backend work that we have been spearheading at lowRISC CIC. I hope to see some of you there.

News and articles from around the web

The submission deadline for the LLVM toolchain devroom at FOSDEM 2018 has been extended to Sunday 3rd December.

The next LLVM Social Berlin will take place on Thursday 30th November. It features a talk "Auto-tuning Compiler Transformations with Machine Learning" by Dr. Biagio Cosenza.

A RISC-V Rust toolchain is now available, courtesy of David Craven. This builds on top of the ongoing RISC-V LLVM backend work.

Review corner

The LLVM Weekly review corner serves to highlight patches that are stuck waiting awaiting review, or work from first-time contributors. See here for more information and how to submit you work for inclusion. Of course the hope is that highlighting these patches will enable LLVM Weekly readers will step up and help to get them merged. I'll be reporting back each week on any activity generated on these patches, as well as sharing a new batch. If you want your patch included you must submit it via the linked form.

There were no new patch submissions this week.
