    Phoronix: LLVM Clang OpenMP 4 Support Nears Reality

    It's taken far longer than most anyone would have estimated, but it looks like things may finally be getting close for the mainlining of OpenMP within the LLVM Clang compiler. The good news is that Intel developers have already been working on OpenMP 4.0 support for Clang...

    Great news! Let's see how much efficient omp simd vs simd intrinsics is

      Fantastic news! The world needs a competitor to GC for advanced computation. I can only hope that all the major vendors get on the band wagon.

          As to that linked article it reminded me that I posted there. Some idiot at the time wanted to fork the entire stack to Apply GPL3 to it. I found that disgusting as it take away developer rights. It also highlights the GPL communities efforts to steal and contaminate code bases that embarrasses them. Now you got me off on a tangent but GPL3 really bugs the hell out of me.
