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.

Don't use the words "actually" ;)

I got in an interesting flame war on what was native vs available to a Distribution, and that was on a meta Distibution where *nothing* is the default install. I'm not having another one to with what constitutes a port vs default install, because the bottom line is I don't care. I personally am more interested in the component parts of what makes up my own mythical meta-distribution, and selecting the parts that fit my needs. If you want to run without a full desktop GPL solution of either KDE Gnome or Xfce.

If you want to play some elitist Distro rubbish with me you have picked the wrong person. Go away.
