LLVM Weekly - #5, Feb 3rd 2014

Welcome to the fifth issue of LLVM Weekly, a weekly newsletter (published every Monday) covering developments in LLVM, Clang, and related projects. LLVM Weekly is brought to you by Alex Bradbury. Subscribe to future issues at https://llvmweekly.org and pass it on to anyone else you think may be interested. Please send any tips or feedback to asb@asbradbury.org, or @llvmweekly or @asbradbury on Twitter. I've been keeping the @llvmweekly Twitter account updated throughout the week, so follow that if you want more frequent news updates.

I'm afraid my summary of mailing list activities is much less thorough than usual, as I've been rather busy this weekend both moving house and suffering from a cold. Do ping me if you think I've missed anything important.
