General Development During the last LLVM developers'meeting, several Apple engineers made some presentations about their work on different aspects of LLVM. One of them explains the work on "clang", a new C front-end, which will also support C++ and Objective C. Chris Lattner also discussed the use of LLVM in Leopard Open GL. Slides and videos available. Additionally, LLVM 2.0 was released recently.

When I first read about LLVM it also sounded pretty obscure to me. But according to Zack Rusin's blog (http://zrusin.blogspot.com/2007/05/mesa-and-llvm.html) it could be used as a framework to write OpenGL Shading Language vertex and fragment programs in any language (that LLVM) supports and generate GLSL code from it. Well read Zack Rusins block for more details, it is interesting to read anyway.
