Happy 50th episode! This episode covers our new, more advanced code optimizer for the Visual C++ compiler back-end. It provides many improvements for both code size and performance, bringing the optimizer to a new standard of quality expected from a modern native compiler.

This is the first public release and we are encouraging people to try it and provide suggestions and feedback about potential bugs. The official release of the new optimizer is expected to be Visual Studio Update 3, while the release available today is unsupported and mostly for testing purposes.

      Great video! Always fun to get insight into the guts of the compiler. I haven't written any C++ in 10 years, but I like to keep an eye on C++ developments just in case.
