Real World News Part 3
Real Software, during the keynote address gave us some roadmap dates for some key new features. This is such a rare event it’s almost newsworthy all by itself.
64 Bit Support: Early next year Mac OS X console applications will become 64 bit capable. Then Cocoa applications. By the summer of 2013 Linux and Windows apps will get converted.
LLVM: Real Software is upgrading the backend compiler to use LLVM. During the first quarter Mac OS X 32 bit applications will start using it. By second quarter 2013 Mac OS X 64 bit apps will use LLVM. Finally, by third quarter 2013 Windows and Linux will use the new compiler.
