Moritz Systems have been contracted by the FreeBSD Foundation to modernize the LLDB debugger’s support for FreeBSD. We are writing a new plugin utilizing the more modern client-server layout that is already used by Darwin, Linux, NetBSD and (unofficially) OpenBSD. The new plugin is going to gradually replace the legacy one.
The LLVM project provides a modern, modular, permissively licensed compiler infrastructure. A toolchain including Clang compiler, LLD linker and LLDB debugger is being developed as a part of it.
