I'm pleased to announce that LLVM 8 is now available.
Get it here: https://llvm.org/releases/download.html#8.0.0
This release contains the work on trunk up to Subversion revision
r351319, plus work on the release branch. It's the result of the LLVM
community's work over the past six months, including: speculative load
hardening, concurrent compilation in the ORC JIT API, no longer
experimental WebAssembly target, a Clang option to initialize
automatic variables, improved pre-compiled header support in clang-cl,
the /Zc:dllexportInlines- flag, RISC-V support in lld. And as usual,
many bug fixes, optimization and diagnostics improvements, etc.
For more details, see the release notes:
