  • LLVM 11 Flips On NVIDIA CUDA Offloading From 64-Bit ARM

    The latest LLVM 11 development code has enabled support for NVIDIA CUDA GPU device offloading from 64-bit ARM.

    LLVM AArch64 has the build system support enabled for allowing CUDA offload from 64-bit ARM hosts. Up to now this wasn't enabled but it turns out it works and has been passing all of the OpenMP offload tests.

    The enablement for CUDA offloading on AArch64 was merged at the end of last week.

  • LLVM/Clang 10.0 Now Available With Better C++20 Support, New CPU Coverage

    The release cycle was dragged out an extra month due to bugs and there ended up even being a last minute sixth release candidate yesterday, but LLVM 10.0 and its sub-projects like Clang 10.0 and LLDB 10.0 were just tagged.

    LLVM 10 is now available as the latest half-year update to this extremely popular open-source compiler stack that spans many architectures, devices, and operating systems.

  • Programming language Julia: Version 1.4 is even faster and brings these new features

    Julia, a zippy programming language for data scientists and machine-learning experts, has been updated with improved multi-threading, new library features, and tweaks to the build system.

    The language has been embraced by some programmers for its C-like speed. Its makers aimed for it also to be as easy to use as Python, with the best qualities of R for statistics and Matlab for algebra.

  • Excellent Free Tutorials to Learn OCaml

    Caml is a general-purpose, powerful, high-level programming language with a large emphasis on speed and efficiency. A dialect of the ML programming language, it supports functional, imperative, and object-oriented programming styles. Caml has been developed and distributed by INRIA, a French research institute, since 1985.

    The OCaml system is the main implementation of the Caml language. It has a very strong type-checking system, offers a powerful module system, automatic memory management, first-class functions, and adds a full-fledged object-oriented layer. OCaml includes a native-code compiler supporting numerous architectures, for high performance; a bytecode compiler, for increased portability; and an interactive loop, for experimentation and rapid development. OCaml’s integrated object system allows object-oriented programming without sacrificing the benefits of functional programming, parametric polymorphism, and type inference. The language is mature, producing efficient code and comes with a large set of general purpose as well as domain-specific libraries.

LLVM 10.0.0 released

  • LLVM 10.0.0 released
    I am pleased to announce that LLVM 10 is now available.
    Get it here:
    This release is the result of the LLVM community's work over the past
    six months (up to to e26a78e7085 on master plus commits up to
    d32170dbd5b on the release/10.x branch).
    Some highlights include:
    - C++ Concepts support in Clang
    - Clang no longer runs in a separate process by default ("in-process cc1")
    - Windows control flow guard (CFG) checks
    - Support for more processor cores and features
    And as usual, many bug fixes, optimizations, and new compiler diagnostics.
    For more details, see the release notes:
    Special thanks to the release testers and packagers: Alexandre Ganea,
    Andrew Kelley, Anil Mahmud, Bernhard Rosenkraenzer, Brian Cain,
    Dimitry Andric, Martijn Otto, Michael Kruse, Michał Górny, Neil
    Nelson, Rainer Orth, Serge Guelton, Sylvestre Ledru, Tobias Hieta, and
    Yvan Roux. Without your work, this release would not be possible.
    For questions or comments about the release, please contact the
    community on the mailing lists. Onwards to LLVM 11! And take care.

Programming: micro.sth, RProtoBuf, Perl and Python

  • Introducing micro.sth

    Many developers turn their noses up at PHP, but I have a soft spot for it. For me, it's the most approachable programming language by far. It feels intuitive in a way no other languages do, and it makes it possible to cobble together a working application with just a handful of lines of code. So whenever I can't find a tool for a specific job, I try to build one myself. The latest project of mine is a case in point. I was looking for a simple application for keeping a photographic diary, and I was sure that I'd be able to find an open-source tool for that. I searched high and low, but I came back empty-handed. Sure, there are plenty of static website generators, but I'd prefer something that doesn't require me to perform the write-generate-upload dance every time I want to post a quick update. And I need something that I can use not only to maintain a simple diary, but also store notes, manage tasks, and draft articles -- all this without getting bogged down by configuring templates, defining categories, and tweaking settings. And because I want most of my content to be private, I should be able to protect access to it with a password.

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RProtoBuf 0.4.17: Robustified

    A new release 0.4.17 of RProtoBuf is now on CRAN. RProtoBuf provides R with bindings for the Google Protocol Buffers (“ProtoBuf”) data encoding and serialization library used and released by Google, and deployed very widely in numerous projects as a language and operating-system agnostic protocol. This release contains small polishes related to the release 0.4.16 which added JSON support for messages, and switched to ByteSizeLong. This release now makes sure JSON functionality is only tested where available (on version 3 of the Protocol Buffers library), and that ByteSizeLong is only called where available (version 3.6.0 or later). Of course, older versions build as before and remain fully supported.
