Hi 👋 has anyone tried this new linker https://github.com/rui314/mold? It might maybe solve the linker speed problems (because the compilation is now quite fast, however the linking is terribly slow 🐢).

afaik, k/n's "link" time is not dominated by the native linker - it's compiling all the klibs to binary code in the link* task

@svyatoslav.scherbina is there any chance that such a miracle will be implemented in the compiler? :)

Exactly. So I don’t expect “mold” to improve compilation time considerably.

We don’t have plans for this. See also above 🙂

Is this this something that can be done in a parallelized way, using Gradle Workers and/or configuration cache? One of the biggest issues with the Link task is that not only does it takes a long time but it also doesn’t get parallelized when there are multiple targets to link
