News and articles from around the web

OpenBSD has switched to using Clang as the default compiler for amd64 and i386 platforms.

KLEE version 1.4.0 has been released. Amazingly, the KLEE symbolic execution engine seems to have escaped a mention in LLVM Weekly so far. Reminder to anyone building projects built on or relevant to LLVM: dropping me an email about your latest release is always welcome, if you don't email me or llvm-dev there's a good chance I won't see it.

ELLCC has seen a new release, adding full support for shared libraries and a new ellcc helper utility.

LLVM 5.0.0-rc1 has been tagged.

Version 1.2 of the Clazy Clang plugin has been released. This adds a number of new checks for common Qt coding issues, and prebuilt Windows binaries are now available.
