LLVM Weekly - #52, Dec 29th 2014

Welcome to the fifty-second 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.

This issue marks the end of one full year of LLVM Weekly. It's a little shorter than usual as the frenetic pace of LLVM/Clang development has slowed over the holiday period. Surprising even to me is that we managed to make it all 52 weeks with an issue every Monday as promised. This requires a non-trivial amount of time each week (2-3+ hours), but I am intending to keep it going into 2015. I'd like to give a big thank you to everyone who's said hi at a conference, sent in corrections or tips on content, or just sent a random thank you. It's been very helpful in motivation. I don't currently intend to change anything about the structure or content of each issue for next year, but if you have any ideas then please let me know.

I can't make it to 31C3 due to the awkward timing of the event, but do let me know if there are any LLVM/Clang related talks worth sharing. There was a talk about Code Pointer Integrity which has previously been covered in LLVM Weekly and is working towards upstreaming. The video is here. If you're interested in lowRISC and at 31C3, Bunnie is leading a discussion about it at 2pm on Monday (today).

News and articles from around the web

There doesn't seem to have been any LLVM or Clang related news over the past week. Everyone seems to be busy with non-LLVM related activities over the christmas break. If you're looking for a job though, Codeplay tell me they have two vancancies: one for a debugger engineer and another for a compiler engineer.
