./devel/py-llvmlite, Lightweight LLVM Python binding for writing JIT compilers

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.41.1, Package name: py311-llvmlite-0.41.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

llvmlite provides a Python binding to LLVM for use in Numba.

The old llvmpy binding exposes a lot of LLVM APIs but the mapping of
C++-style memory management to Python is error prone. Numba and many
JIT compilers do not need a full LLVM API. Only the IR builder,
optimizer, and JIT compiler APIs are necessary.

llvmlite is a project originally tailored for Numba's needs, using the
following approach:

* A small C wrapper around the parts of the LLVM C++ API we need that
are not already exposed by the LLVM C API.
* A ctypes Python wrapper around the C API.
* A pure Python implementation of the subset of the LLVM IR builder
that we need for Numba.

Log message:
devel/py-llvmlite: un-break at least on Linux, update to 0.41.1 with static LLVM

This now builds a patched LLVM that is statically linked, with llvmlite patches,
as upstream wants and supports as only variant.

This has not been tested widely, but has been uncondtionally BROKEN before.

v0.41.1 (Oct 17, 2023)¶

This is a maintenance release that includes a workaround in the test suite for \ 
ORCJit issues on the aarch64 platform. Also, this is the last release to support \ 
the Windows 32-bit platform (win32).

v0.40.0 (May 1, 2023)¶

This release predominantly upgrades to LLVM 14 and Python 3.11. Bindings to a \ 
large number of passes are added. The minimum supported Python version is now \ 
Python 3.8.

Note: A bug was discovered in LLVM’s RuntimeDyldELF on the Aarch64 platform \ 
that can cause segfaults when cross module symbols are linked. It is necessary \ 
for JIT users to build LLVM with the patch added in PR#926.

v0.39.0 (July 25, 2022)¶

This release predominantly adds new features and improves functionality.

    It’s now possible to directly set LLVM metadata on global variables.

    Functions and global variables now support the specification of a section in \ 
which they should be placed.

    The attribute source_file had been added to the ModuleRef class, it returns \ 
the module’s original file name.

    The FFI library binding to LLVM is now loaded with importlib to increase \ 
compatibility with other projects and improve start-up times.

    Linux builds now use the parallel option to make to speed up building the \ 
FFI library.

    Preliminary work to expose LLVM’s optimization-remarks interface has been \ 
undertaken. The bindings are exposed and tested, but not yet documented for \ 
general use (additional work is needed).


    The llvmlite.llvmpy module has been deprecated as the functionality it \ 
provides is available through the llvmlite.ir module. See the deprecation guide \ 
in the user documentation for details and recommendations regarding replacement.

v0.38.0 (January 13, 2022)

This release makes llvmlite compatible with Python 3.10. It also adds an abiname \ 
option to the target machine creation interface that mimics the same in LLVM. \ 
Further, a large number of functions are added to the IR API to support common \ 
uses of constant expressions. Finally, a number of bugs were fixed!
