I’d like to make sure that I’m using the right LLVM version.
I tried to download LLVM 8 from the link in your email by cloning this repository:
git clone https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project.git
When I do llc --version, it says LLVM 9.0.0 instead of 8.0.0
LLVM version 9.0.0svn
DEBUG build with assertions.
Default target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

I'm pleased to announce that LLVM 8 is now available. Get it here: [https://llvm.org/releases/download.html#8.0.0](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: [https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.html](https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.html) [https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/clang/docs/ReleaseNotes.html](https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/clang/docs/ReleaseNotes.html) [https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/clang/tools/extra/docs/ReleaseNotes.html](https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/clang/tools/extra/docs/ReleaseNotes.html) [https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/lld/docs/ReleaseNotes.html](https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/tools/lld/docs/ReleaseNotes.html) [https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/projects/libcxx/docs/ReleaseNotes.html](https://llvm.org/releases/8.0.0/projects/libcxx/docs/ReleaseNotes.html) Special thanks to the release testers and packagers: Amy Kwan, Bero Rosenkränzer, Brian Cain, Diana Picus, Dimitry Andric, Kim Gräsman, Lei Huang, Michał Górny, Sylvestre Ledru, Ulrich Weigand, Vedant Kumar, and Yvan Roux.
