"The Khronos Group today announced OpenCL 1.1, a backwards
compatible update that boosts performance in the parallel
programming standard. OpenCL 1.1 efficiently shares images and
buffers by linking event objects and fence sync objects, features
memory object destructor callbacks and now allows for OpenCL
commands to be enqueued from additional hosts.
"OpenCL is a free programming standard designed from the ground
up to optimize coding in muliticore processors. The project was
created by the Khronos Group with the participation of more than 30
software and hardware companies including, ARM, Qualcomm, Texas
Instruments, Apple and Toshiba. In addition to OpenCL, the Khronos
Group is responsible for WebGL and OpenGL graphics standards."
