4.0 -> 5.0?

Hi,

This is just curiosity: what's going to be so different (from an end-user PoV)
that the upcoming next release will apparently be 5.0.0 instead of 4.x?

I tried to get an idea on llvm.org but the available documentation is confusing
at best (and somewhat lacking throughout):
http://llvm.org/docs/ReleaseNotes.html#whatsnew

Thanks,
R.

Hi,

LLVM switched to a new versioning scheme last December. You can read more about it on LLVM’s blog: http://blog.llvm.org/2016/12/llvms-new-versioning-scheme.html .
