PathScale is working on a new project that is internally dubbed "DogFood", it's a new integrated development environment (IDE) based upon Qt Creator but with a greater focus on C++ and other new development concepts.
In response to Nokia shutting down their Brisbane office
and getting rid of those developers where several key Qt components are developed, C. Bergström shared that PathScale is hiring.
PathScale is the interesting compiler company that last year open-sourced their EKOPath Compiler Suite
, is involved with the Gdev CUDA Runtime
, has forked their own Nouveau driver
to focus on CUDA/GPGPU, donated to NetBSD/FreeBSD a C++ runtime
, and has given out free NVIDIA graphics cards to open-source developers
DogFood is PathScale's internal name for their early-stage IDE project that's based off of Qt Creator. The two high-level goals of DogFood is "fanatical" C++ support and strong support for multi-core/GPGPU and HPC.
It's interesting to see a new Linux IDE based upon QtC that's focusing strongly on multi-core / GPGPU / High Performance Computing, it will be interesting to see how it develops. Unfortunately, these are the only public details on PathScale DogFood at this time. These scant details were mentioned in this mailing list post
