News and articles from around the web

Botond Ballo has posted a wonderfully thorough summary of the recent Lenexa C++ standards meeting, even including a table to summarise the status of various major proposals.

I have somehow neglected to mention the Crystal language previously. It is a statically typed language with syntax inspired by Ruby which (of course) compiles using LLVM. It was discussed last week on Hacker News.

icGrep has been released. It makes use of the 'Parabix' text representation and LLVM for high performance regex matching. More details are available at the icGrep homepage.

The winners of the 7th Underhanded C Contest have now been announced online. Congratulations to the winner, Karen Pease, for creating such a monstrous piece of code.
