[7.0.0 Release] One week to the branch

Hello everyone,

Here's just a quick reminder that the upcoming release branch is
scheduled for creation one week from today, on Wednesday 1 August

Please try to avoid disruptive changes close to the branch.

The full release schedule is available under Upcoming Releases at

As the branch is created, the trunk version will become 8.0.0.


Thanks for the warning, Hans.

Here are 2 things I would like to see make it into the branch:

Probably not going to happen since there is no proposed fix yet, but a bug fix for this: https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36578

Perhaps if I come up with a fix within a week it could make it into the branch?

Hi Andrew,

There'll be time to merge fixes when the branch has been created. I'll
keep an eye on these.
