"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."
