No, just the svn commit log. The status right now is that the system 
unit for Darwin/x86-64 can be mostly compiled and "assembled" (i.e., the 
generated LLVM IR can be successfully parsed by llc -- although since it 
doesn't get completely to the end, I may not have seen all errors for 
code coming before that yet) other than
b) inline assembler
c) get_frame
d) trampolines for interface methods

RTTI is not that difficult to solve (just work to convert ncgrtti to the 
high level typed constant infrastructure), but the others are fairly 
hard problems.
