The Maui High-Performance Computing Center (MHPCC) and the University of Manchester have joined the OpenMP ARB. This brings the number of vendors and research organizations now collaborating on developing the standard parallel programming model to 33.
SC18, Dallas, Texas – November 8, 2018 – The OpenMP® Architecture Review Board (ARB) is pleased to announce Version 5.0 of the OpenMP API Specification, a major upgrade of the OpenMP language. The OpenMP community has made many requests since version 4.5 was introduced in 2015. As a result OpenMP 5.0 adds many new features that will be useful for highly parallel and complex applications. OpenMP now covers the entire hardware spectrum from embedded and accelerator devices to multicore systems with shared-memory. Vendors have made reference implementations of parts of the standard, and user courses will soon be given at OpenMP workshops and major conferences. More...
SUSE and the University of Delaware have joined the OpenMP ARB, a group of leading hardware and software vendors and research organizations creating the standard for the most popular shared-memory parallel programming model in use today.
Austin, Texas – July 24, 2018 - The OpenMP® Architecture Review Board (ARB) has released Technical Report 7, the final preview and public comment draft for the future OpenMP® API, version 5.0. Version 5.0 will represent a major leap forward to ready the OpenMP programming model for Exascale computing. Users and implementers are encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed API. Feedback can be posted on the OpenMP Forum.
