News and articles from around the web

The implementation of the Swift programming language is now open source. Rather than being a simple code dump, development will now occur out in the open with external contributions encouraged. If you haven't already, now might be a good time to watch Joseph Groff and Chris Lattner's talk on the Swift Intermediate Language.

Rui Ueyama wrote about the new LLD ELF linker on the official LLVM blog.

The Visual C++ team have released Clang with Microsoft CodeGen. This uses the Clang parser along with the code generator and optimizer from Visual C++. The majority of the Clang and LLVM changes will be contributed back upstream.

Alex Denisov wrote about using the LLVM API with Swift.

If you haven't already submitted your talk proposal for the LLVM devroom at FOSDEM, you've now got a little more time. Get your submission in by this Friday.
