Happy First Day of Spring!!

Now is the time to start thinking about the Clang/LLVM 3.1 release. Our testers are great people with the patience of Job, but we need more people testing LLVM on more platforms. If you are willing to be a tester for LLVM's 3.1 release, please email me and let me know. The 3.1 release doesn't have a schedule just yet, but testing will be throughout the month of April, with a release date sometime in May.

What is expected of a tester:

Testers are called upon to do a lot. We want to make sure that our releases are of the highest quality. You will:

1) Be expected to maintain a testing machine with the same configuration throughout the testing period,
2) Run the previous release's test suite to get a baseline to compare with the new test suite,
3) Compile and run the test suite of all of the pre-release tarballs,
4) File bugs for any issues you see, especially regressions,
5) Assist in getting the bugs fixed – either by fixing them yourself or pestering others to look at them, and
6) Produce the release binaries for your machine.

Platforms:

As always, we support Intel on Darwin, Debian and Ubuntu Linux, Windows, and FreeBSD. We haven't released binaries for ARM, but that may change this time around (no guarantees though). If you have a platform for which you would like to see binaries released, let me know!

Share and enjoy!

My 2 cents: I think it would be great if dynamic libs were a part of
the binary releases. That would simplify the process of using LLVM
with bindings for python, .net, java ...

Best, Keith
