Released a few days back was the newest version of AMD/RTG's HIP compiler as part of their Boltzmann initiative in porting CUDA code to run on Radeon hardware with their new software stack.

The HIP 0.82 compiler bumps its dependencies to newer HCC / ROCK driver / ROCR Runtime, enables multi-GPU support, supports hipStreams to send a sequence of copy and kernel commands to a device, optimized memory copy operations, enabling atomics to local memory, improved free memory reporting, and more.
