binary release would be great

You know what I would really love? I set of pre-built
llvm binaries. Either for Windows or RedHat.

IIUC, the cygwin nightly build hasn't succeeded since
March, and the latest download on illuvium.net predates
that. I'd love to be able to try out 1.6, but having to build
my own compiler to build it is a substantial barrier. I know
there are binaries for the gcc frontend, which is cool,
but I'd most like to be able just to get one whole big
package with binaries for everything. It doesn't need to
be an rpm necessarily; just programs I can run.

Any chance?

That would be great. Contributions are very welcome from everyone out there, we can host them on the llvm web page.

Yup, unfortunately Reid (the guy who runs illuvium) isn't doing much LLVM stuff anymore, and his cygwin tester isn't running.

Agreed.

Actually, we do have binary tarballs for linux solaris and Mac OS X of the C front-end. :slight_smile: (more are welcome as well).

I can't really help here other than to say that if people are willing to put together these binaries, we'd be happy to host them from the web site :slight_smile:
