Introduction

This document contains the release notes for the lld linker, release 10.0.0.

Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release
=================================================

ELF Improvements
----------------

* Glob pattern, which you can use in linker scripts or version scripts,
  now supports `\` and `[!...]`. Except character classes
  (e.g. `[[:digit:]]`), lld's glob pattern should be fully compatible
  with GNU now. (`r375051
  <https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/commit/48993d5ab9413f0e5b94dfa292a233ce55b09e3e>`_)

WebAssembly Improvements
------------------------

* `__data_end` and `__heap_base` are no longer exported by default,
  as it's best to keep them internal when possible. They can be
  explicitly exported with `--export=__data_end` and
  `--export=__heap_base`, respectively.
