POCL 1.7 Released With Better Support For SPIR-V Binaries On CPUs
POCL continues to support OpenCL 1.2 with various OpenCL 2.x features thanks to LLVM's Clang doing much of the heavy lifting for supporting OpenCL across targets. POCL 1.7 as the open-source project's first new feature release since December brings a few key improvements.
POCL 1.7 delivers on support for LLVM/Clang 12.0 that was recently released, there is improved support for cross-compiling POCL to other targets, and there is also improved support for SPIR-V binaries when running on CPUs.
POCL 1.7 is available for download from GitHub. Learn more about this portable CPU/GPU OpenCL implementation via portableCL.org.
