Hi Francis,

I tried downloading and building lightning-2.1.4

On my mac M1

make check hangs on 3to2

Is this ever going to get fixed?

I think the problem is that nobody here has a M1 to test with...


P.S. If not, then I will not bother y’all again.

 GNU lightning 2.1.4 released!

 GNU lightning is a library to aid in making portable programs
 that compile assembly code at run time.


 Download release:

2.1.4 main features are the new Loongarch port, currently supporting
 only Linux 64 bit, and a new rewrite of the register live and
 unknown state logic. Now it should be faster to generate code.

 The matrix of built and tested environments is:
 aarch64        Linux
 alpha        Linux (QEMU)
 armv7l        Linux (QEMU)
 armv7hl        Linux (QEMU)
 hppa        Linux (32 bit, QEMU)
 i686        Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and Cygwin/MingW
 ia64        Linux
 mips        Linux
 powerpc32    AIX
 powerpc64    AIX
 powerpc64le    Linux
 riscv        Linux
 s390        Linux
 s390x        Linux
 sparc        Linux
 sparc64        Linux
 x32        Linux
 x86_64        Linux and Cygwin/MingW


  Highlights are:

 o Faster jit generation.
 o New loongarch port.
 o New skip instruction and rework of the align instruction.
 o New bswapr_us, bswapr_ui, bswapr_ul byte swap instructions.
 o New movzr and movnr conditional move instructions.
 o New casr and casi atomic compare and swap instructions.
o Use short unconditional jumps and calls to forward, not yet defined labels.
 o And several bug fixes and optimizations.
