LLVM-Based Compiler For .NET

The NEW Microsoft is somewhat embracing Open Source.  2015 started with the CoreCLR being open sourced – the CoreCLR is the execution engine for .NET apps and performs compilation to machine code, garbage collection, and other core functionality to .NET.

Today,we hear that Russell Hadley on the LLVM mailing list that Microsoft has a new effort to

Produce MSIL code generators based on LLVM and targeting the open source dotnet CoreCLR

This new JIT will allow any C# program written for the .NET Core class libraries to run on any platform that CoreCLR can be ported to and that LLVM will target.
