LLVM 3.8.0 Release Candidate 1 has been announced and made available for immediate download in the form of sources and binaries even though all binaries for all platforms are not yet out.
Here’s What’s new in LLVM 3.8.0
This compiler infrastructure with sets of reusable libraries comes with a few notable features that are worthy of mentioning here.
First off support for Windows Vista and XP is no longer there. For those on the Windows platform, you will need your minimum Windows version to run LLVM being Windows 7.
The Autoconf build system is now deprecated as well as quite a large number of C API functions that are now history.
There is a refactoring of C API headers. You can get a more detailed list of the changes on the release notes page here.
You can go in and download this C and C++ compiler from the official website. Clang 3.8 is also in the pipeline and we will keep you updated on the release date.
