LLVM and Clang 3.4 Are Out 118

An anonymous reader writes that the LLVM compiler framework and Clang C++ compiler hit 3.4 "With C++14 draft fully implemented in Clang and libc++. Read more in LLVM and Clang release notes." Also of note: "This is expected to be the last release of LLVM which compiles using a C++98 toolchain. We expect to start using some C++11 features in LLVM and other sub-projects starting after this release. That said, we are committed to supporting a reasonable set of modern C++ toolchains as the host compiler on all of the platforms. This will at least include Visual Studio 2012 on Windows, and Clang 3.1 or GCC 4.7.x on Mac and Linux. The final set of compilers (and the C++11 features they support) is not set in stone, but we wanted users of LLVM to have a heads up that the next release will involve a substantial change in the host toolchain requirements."

    Does that make it the first compiler with full draft C++14 support? GCC is making progress [gnu.org] but not there yet.

    Every time I see that project name, I immediately think of the Simspons doing "Clang Clang went the trolley".

  • They seem to have stopped mingw builds and focus on clang-cl on windows. The problem is that you need the Windows SDK. With most other open source / free compilers this is not necessary. Personally I use mingw in both of its incarnations and the problem is that I cannot download a ready made binary. clang-cl is unusable without windows sdk. It is not compatible with lcc,pelles,openwatcom,digital mars c SDKs.

      So, since you're programming on Windows anyway, what's the problem with downloading and installing the Windows SDK? It's available from the MS site without registration or fees.

Real Programmers don't write in PL/I. PL/I is for programmers who can't decide whether to write in COBOL or FORTRAN.
