LLVM 17.0.0 Release Planning and Update

Hi everyone!

It’s that time of the year when we start thinking about the next release of LLVM! For this release I will be the release manager. Here are the important upcoming dates:

  • July 25th - release/17.x branch created
  • July 27th - 17.0.0-rc1 released

After that we will roll a new release every other Tuesday until we feel we are ready.

Please review new features and major fixes you want to target for 17.x

Or watch my EuroLLVM keynote on the subject:



Thanks for handling it. These dates sound good to me, particularly because due to accidental shifts I’m doing LLVM weeklies in Gentoo on Wednesdays ;-).

main looks good from our end, as of today. Hopefully no breakage will land before the branching ;-).

Just checking if this is now considered agreed, which I guess means “Upcoming Releases” on llvm.org can be updated? Thanks.
