STANDARDS --
Version 0.11 of POCL -- originally known as Portable OpenCL and since renamed to the Portable Computing Language -- is now available for running OpenCL on the CPU in an open-source environment.

POCL 0.11 was released last week and it adds kernel compiler support for LLVM/Clang 3.6. This POCL implementation of OpenCL 1.x/2.x now also supports caching of compiled OpenCL kernels, adds in new examples, and has better debugging support. POCL v0.11 also adds experimental Windows support and initial Google Android support. PortableCL 0.11 also has initial MIPS architecture support.


The 0.11 announcement along with more information on POCL and its open-source OpenCL possibilities can be found via PortableCL.org.
