digitalmars.D.ldc - CircleCI: LLVM trunk or pre-release

Brief summary of which LLVM versions our current CI systems use: - Travis: released LLVM versions on Linux (3.5-3.8) and OS X (3.8) - CircleCI: Linux LLVM 3.9 (pre-release, APT repo) - AppVeyor: windows LLVM 3.9 (LLVM is built by ourselves) There are now two LLVM versions for which binary packages are only available through the APT repositories: 3.9 and 4.0. On Travis, we use the binary archives available from llvm.org so it will be a little annoying to special case the builds for LLVM 3.9 before the actual release happens and packages are available. On CircleCI we use the APT repo system, so it is easy to pick LLVM 3.9 and 4.0, but... CircleCI does not support Travis-style matrix builds natively. Perhaps this can work: https://github.com/michaelcontento/circleci-matrix I don't think anybody enjoys working on setting up the CI systems. The easiest thing to do now is pick either 3.9 or 4.0 for CircleCI, and leave it at that. Adding LLVM 3.9 to Travis is also pretty easy, but it will add yet another Travis task. Thoughts?

I'd suggest using the supported official releases for Travis and the next unofficial one (i.e., currently 3.9 as it hasn't been released yet) for CircleCI and AppVeyor. I'd only focus on 4.0 as soon as LLVM 3.9 is released, at least as long as there aren't any killer features.
