News and articles from around the web

The Zig programming language has just had its first beta release. The release notes do a good job of introducing the "Zen of Zig".

The 2017 US LLVM Developers' Meeting was held last week and was a huge success. As in previous yours, talks were recorded and will be available online in due course. There should be an announcement on the mailing list once they're available, and of course I'll spread the word here in LLVM Weekly. Tanya will be sending a survey out to attendees soon - be sure to fill it out.

Review corner

The LLVM Weekly review corner serves to highlight patches that are stuck waiting awaiting review, or work from first-time contributors.

I'll be reporting back each week on any activity generated on these patches, as well as sharing a new batch. If you want your patch included you must submit it via the linked form.

There was only one patch submission last week, which I'm pleased to report did see further review activity (though a second opinion is being sought). Thank you to Roman Lebedev and Daniel Marjamäki for contributing review comments.

There are two patch submissions this week:
