Ten years of LLVM Weekly!

Today marks a massive milestone, LLVM Weekly has now been published every single week (without failure) for the past ten years. Thank you for reading! I’ve written up some thoughts and reflections on the newsletter, and also tried to answer some common questions about how it’s put together.

It has of course been a quiet week in terms of commits and development discussions due to many contributors being on holiday, so the issue is a bit more brief than usual.

News and articles from around the web and events

Yet another batch of videos from the 2023 LLVM Developers' Meeting were posted on YouTube.

Serge Guelton wrote up some in-depth experimental with -ftrivial-auto-var-init.

If you’ve ever wanted the ability to convert simple functions defined in LLVM IR to an Excel spreadsheet performing the same computation, then Jordan Rose has you covered with CellLVM.

According to the LLVM calendar in the coming week there will be:
