I'm in the Bay Area this week for the second RISC-V workshop where my colleague and I will of course be talking about lowRISC. If you're not able to make it, keep an eye on the lowRISC blog which I intend to keep updating semi-live with notes from the talks and presentations.

News and articles from around the web

Hans Wennborg has shared the release plan for LLVM/Clang 3.7. This would see the release branch created on 14th July, with a final release targeted for 21st August.

A detailed analysis of the results of the "What is C in practice" survey has now been posted. The survey gained around 300 responses, and aims to help guide the definition of a formal model for the de facto standard of C (i.e. C as it is used rather than purely as specified in the ISO standard).

The 3.6.2-rc1 LLVM/Clang release has been tagged. As always, testing is encouraged.

On the mailing lists

Unfortunately at the time of writing GMANE seems to be having some problems, so for this week I'll be using links to the pipermail archives of the relevant mailing list posts.
