It's the 28th of August, which according to the schedule should be
when llvm 9 gets released. However, it's not ready yet, which means
it's now officially late.
There are still one or two outstanding issues. My ambition is to have
those closed out, and rc3 tagged by the end of the week. If all goes
well, that could then become the final release perhaps next week. In
any case, the goal is for the release to happen as soon as possible.
In the meantime, release notes can be added up until the 'final' tag
is committed. So if you've been thinking about writing something, this
is a good time. See my previous email
