ORC JIT Weekly #3 -- No JIT updates this week.

Hi All,

No open source work to speak of this week. All my effort is going on tidying up the new initializers patch which I expect to land this weekend, or early next week.

Hi Lang, thanks for sending the update anyway!

Once you have a working prototype for your initializers patch, could you
maybe post a preview on Phabricator? (I don't think anyone needs to
approve it, so we won't need an actual review.) Getting the code before
it lands would be nice to check how it affects examples etc. Thanks!

Good idea! Unfortunately it has taken longer than expected to get the patch ready for the mainline, but it’s at least at preview quality now. I will post something for review shortly.

Hi Stefan,

Ok – an initial preview of the new initializer support is up at https://reviews.llvm.org/D74300.

I haven’t even updated the unit tests yet, but at least the regression tests and lli should work.

So far this is only tested on Darwin, so I would be interested to hear how it holds up on Linux.
