General Development The LLVM Project recently released a new version of their compiler, optimizer and code generators. LLVM includes a drop-in GCC-compatible C/C++ and ObjC compiler, mature optimization technology (including cross file/whole program optimization), and a highly optimizing code generator. For people who enjoy hacking on compilers and runtimes, LLVM provides libraries for implementing custom optimizers and code generators including JIT compiler support. This release is the first to provide beta GCC 4.2 compatibility as well as the new "clang" C/ObjC front-end, which provides capabilities to build source-to-source translators and many other tools.

Pardon me, but it is time to stop propagating this absurd myth.

If there were any GPL code in the NetBSD code, the kernel would still be BSD, but it would be infringing the GPL license until that GPL code was excised. Legal measures could be taken, fines may apply, lawyers would get rich(er), but the BSD license would continue to apply to BSD-licensed code just the same.
