Although the majority of talks at the first Community.o summit weren’t recorded, those that were are now available on the LLVM Foundation’s YouTube channel.

‘duk’ on the Secret Club blog looked in details at differing codegen for floating point clamp between Clang and Rust. Ultimately a bug report was filed and the codegen issue was fixed.

Version 1.0 of HPVM (the Heterogeneous Parallel Virtual Machine) has been released. HPVM is a retargetable compiler infrastructure that targets CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and accelerators. It uses a target-independent compiler IR that extends the LLVM 9.0.0 compiler IR with an explicit, hierarchical data flow representation that captures task, data, and pipelined parallelism.
