News and articles from around the web

LLVM is taking part in Google Summer of Code as a mentoring organisation. Students can earn a $5500 stipend by working on open source projects over the summer. See here for the list of mentoring organisations advertising LLVM-related projects. Please do help spread the word, applications open on Monday the 16th of March. I am biased, but I'd like to draw particular attention to the wide variety of lowRISC GSoC ideas, including a project to use tagged memory to provide protection against control-flow hijacking.

Ravi, a programming language based on Lua 5.3 has been announced. It features JIT compilation using LLVM, though in the current development version only a fraction of the Lua bytecodes are JIT-compiled.
