Tag suggestion: +software since this is a release announcement, -freebsd since that OS is not relevant.
I figured the FreeBSD tag was relevant because of FreeBSD’s ongoing clang/llvm/lld efforts. But maybe not?
Ah, I see what you were going for. But the linked page doesn’t mention that at all.
They mention FreeBSD in the pages for the subprojects.
Indeed, upstream lld developers have been doing a lot of work to get lld into shape as a linker for FreeBSD, and FreeBSD developers have been working on bringing 3.9 into FreeBSD. The lld work is mentioned in lld’s release notes:
What’s new in ELF Support?
LLD 3.9 is a major milestone for us. It is the first release that can link real-world large userland programs, including LLVM/Clang/LLD themselves. In fact, for example, it can now be used to produce most userland programs distributed as part of FreeBSD.
But indeed, this isn’t a FreeBSD story per se.
