The CF4OCL v2.1.0 release was made yesterday and adds an offline kernel compiler and linker, a silent "by index" device filter and context constructor, and OpenCL 2.1 symbols. There are also many bug fixes, CMake build system improvements, and a range of other enhancements for this multi-platform framework.
