    Phoronix: Bye Bye Cilk Plus: GCC Lightened By 82k L.O.C.

    Earlier this month I reported on Intel's plans for removing Cilk Plus from GCC 8 since this parallel programming effort of theirs was depreciated in GCC 7 and hadn't seen much adoption. It's now official with the code being stripped out of the GCC 8 code-base...

        *deprecated.

        To depreciate is to lose monetary value. Deprecation is what is done to things that ate not to be used in new code anymore because the features will be removed from a future version of whatever it is a part of.

          Correct, though of course, code becomes deprecated because it's lost all of it's value....
