LLVM Weekly - #51, Dec 22nd 2014

Welcome to the fifty-first 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. Subscribe to future issues at http://llvmweekly.org and pass it on to anyone else you think may be interested. Please send any tips or feedback to asb@asbradbury.org, or @llvmweekly or @asbradbury on Twitter.

Last week as part of the lowRISC project I was involved in sharing our plans for tagged memory and 'minion' cores in the initial version. We've almost made it a full year of LLVM Weekly with no interruption of service!

News and articles from around the web

3.5.1-rc2 has been tagged, time to get testing again.

Version 0.15.1 of LDC, the LLVM D Compiler has been released. The most prominent feature is probably the addition of preliminary support for MSVC on Win64.

SN Systems (part of Sony) have written a blog post describing their recently contributed ABI test suite.

Peter Wilmott has benchmarked Ruby across various GCC and Clang releases. The discussion at HN may be of interest.
