LLVM 1.3 Now On SourceForge

The Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) version 1.3, announced on /. August 13th, 2004 has become a SourceForge project. The 1.3 release can now be downloaded from the project's file area. LLVM is a source-language agnostic toolkit for building static and dynamic compilers, optimizers, linkers and jit or interpreted virtual machines. LLVM provides extensive optimization support, three mid-level IR formats (bytecode, assembly, and C++), three backend targets (x86,Sparc,PPC), and full documentation. Based on the Single Static Assignment form, the design of LLVM is both simple and powerful. This new toolkit approach to compiler related tools is quickly attracting new developers who are making significant contributions to the work. Visit the home page where you can learn all the details.
