HPVM v2.0 has been released. HPVM is a retargetable compiler infrastructure for heterogeneous parallel systems that targets CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs, It uses a target-independent compiler IR that extends the LLVM compiler IR with an explicit, hierarchical dataflow graph representation that captures task, data and (streaming) pipelined parallelism.

Tom Tromey blogged about dramatically speeding up GDB’s DWARF reader.
