Apple Doesn't Know If Swift Will Be Open-Source Or Cross-Platform

At Apple's recent WWDC event besides announcing a new 3D graphics API, Apple also announced Swift, a new programming. However, Apple developers don't yet know -- or can't admit -- whether Swift will ultimately be open-source or made to be cross-platform.

PathScale Is Hiring To Work On Open-Source AMD Drivers

PathScale, the company behind the EKOPath compiler and other compiler technologies for both CPUs and GPGPU solutions, is looking to hire one or two kernel developers to work on improving the open-source AMD Linux graphics drivers... Particularly, to improve the GPGPU/OpenCL compute support in the driver, improve the Hawaii GPU and APU support, and potential optimizations for GPUs with 4GB+ of video memory.

The LLVM 64-bit ARM64/AArch64 Back-Ends Have Merged

Back in March Apple open-sourced their ARM 64-bit LLVM back-end (dubbed ARM64) many months after other ARM vendors had already developed a competing 64-bit ARM back-end (dubbed "AArch64" as ARM's official name for architecture). Since Apple opened up their back-end, Apple and outside LLVM developers have been working to converge the competing 64-bit ARM back-ends into a single 64-bit ARM target. That work is now complete.

LLVM's 64-bit ARM Back-End Is Almost Merged With Apple's Code

Back in March Apple open-sourced their 64-bit LLVM compiler back-end (ARM64) but by the time that was done there was already a 64-bit ARM back-end (AArch64) present within mainline LLVM that was created by other ARM stakeholders. For the past several weeks, all of the LLVM developers have been working on converting towards a single LLVM 64-bit ARM back-end. In the days ahead, that work should be complete.
