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.

Yeah.. Cyclops is pretty funny. I try to avoid responding to him (but I'm pretty bored right now since I'm stuck waiting between graduation from school and starting a new job).

It's always good to meet a reasonable and knowledgeable person with shared interests, even if he's on the opposite side of a stupid ideological divide. I guess you can start calling cyclops a "Gentoo User" (or "ricer" for short) and see how he responds to that. (I looked him up on google a while ago and it seems like he was making a feature request for some "game panel" in gentoo).

It would be really nice if Adam could add an "ignore user" feature to the forum software that would just automatically collapse posts by certain people. It would be good for the NotParker, Moulinneuf sorts who never really seemed to have much to contribute much beyond emotion. It's too bad you can't have an internet forum without seeing instances of John Gabriel's Greater Internet F--wad Theory.

Thanks for your positive contributions to the discussion.
