Hi all!

LLVM 5.0 has been released! See the release notes here: http://releases.llvm.org/5.0.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.html
Downloads: http://releases.llvm.org/download.html#5.0.0

As usual LDC is mentioned in the release notes, too: http://releases.llvm.org/5.0.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.html#ldc-the-llvm-based-d-compiler
IMHO this is good advertisement for D & LDC.

Regards,
Kai

Indeed it is. Thanks for making this happen!

Great work, Kai!

Are there any new code-generation features in LLVM 5.0 that LDC will make use of?

Given that LLVM has direct support for coroutines since 4.0 (https://llvm.org/docs/Coroutines.html) I've wondered if D (even just LDC D for starters) could use that to implement async/await or a similar feature.

C++17 is supported it?

Clang 5 supports C++17 and "C++ coroutines TS"
