Hi all!

Finally, LLVM 3.6 has been released! See the release notes here: 
http://llvm.org/releases/3.6.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.html
Downloads: http://llvm.org/releases/download.html#3.6.0

Also note that LDC is mentioned in the release notes as one of 
the projects who are already supporting LLVM 3.6. Just recompile 
LDC using master branch from GitHub or from the 0.15.1 source.

This is the 6th time that LDC and D are mentioned in the LLVM 
release notes!

Regards,
Kai

That is pretty nice recognition in the release notes for both D and LDC. I going to start testing LLVM 3.6 with iOS today. If it looks good, I'll move my forked ios branch from 3.5.1 to 3.6.

I got LLVM 3.6 to work but I couldn't compile with LDC 0.15.1 (looks like more 3.6 fixes came in after it) and ldc master HEAD compilation ended up with an LLVM assertion failure on OS X. I backed up to ldc commit 136fe8d and that worked for both OS X and iOS.

Which assertion do you get on OS X? Regards, Kai

I didn't save the error message. I'll have to rebuild with ldc master later today then I'll let you know. I was using an LLVM 3.6 (github mirror release_36 branch) Debug+Asserts build.

False alarm Kai. I updated ldc to master but not runtime. Once I updated druntime to ldc branch HEAD, it builds ok. Probably the varargs change. BTW, this was the assertion I got in a bunch of modules: Assertion failed: (getOperand(0)->getType() == cast<PointerType>(getOperand(1)->getType())->getElementType() && "Ptr must be a pointer to Val type!"), function AssertOK, file /Users/dan/projects/ldc/llvm-git/lib/IR/Instructions.cpp, line 1083.
