digitalmars.D.ldc - LDC 0.14.0 released!

Hi everyone!

The LDC release 0.14.0 is here! It is based on the 2.065.0 
front-end and LLVM 3.1-3.4.2 (OS X: LLVM 3.2/3.4.2 only).

This release contains some exciting new features like shared 
libraries and link-time stripping of dead code on Linux!
Be sure to read the change log at the GitHub release page which 
also has the package download links:

As always, the Win32/MinGW packages require a recent version of 
the mingw-w64 toolchain, see the (new) README file for details.

There is no Win64/MSVC package yet. Nevertheless the 
implementation had made a huge step forward thanks to the help 
from Trass3r. He also provides an experimental version Win64 MSVC 
version at https://github.com/Trass3r/ldc/releases.

Please be sure to report any bugs at
https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/issues, and feel free to 
drop by
at the digitalmars.D.ldc forums
(http://forum.dlang.org/group/digitalmars.D.ldc) for any 
questions or
comments.

Thanks to everybody involved in making this happen!

Regards,
Kai

Wow! Congratulations! Can't wait to try it, thanks!

Arch Linux packages updated. Those will still use static Phobos 
library for now, shared library version is available for testing 
via https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/ldc-alpha

I am evaluating option to switch to shared libraries with next 
release as well as make LDC default D compiler on Arch Linux (and 
phobos2-ldc.so default shared phobos library) but that depends on 
how reliably those will behave in tests.

P.S. it will take a bit of time until it actually propagates to mirrors

It seems to work.
LLVM intrinsics llvm.bswap.i#, llvm.ctpop.i#, llvm.ctlz.i# and 
llvm.cttz.i# are now builtins and can be used with CTFE. (#648) 
(new)<
I try to write code that compiles with both ldc and dmd, so LDC-specific stuff is less important. Are the bswap and other functions of core.bitop usable in CTFE? If the answer is negative, isn't it better to improve those in dmd too to make them usable in CFFE on all D compilers?
Fixed the signature of intrinsic llvm.prefetch and added new 
intrinsic llvm.clear_cache (from LLVM 3.5). (new)<
Where do I find information and usage examples of llvm.prefetch and llvm.clear_cache? Bye, bearophile

The best thing usually is to just search the LLVM language reference page (http://llvm.org/docs/LangRef.html) for the intrinsic name. Some of the intrinsics are not documented all too well, but these are mostly the ones that just mirror well-known C builtins from other compilers, so it's not too bad. Best, David

The core.bitop functions are implemented in terms of the LLVM intrinsics. They are threfore CTFE-enabled, too. There should be no visible change to users except that the mentioned intrinsics are now usable in CTFE. Regards, Kai
