    Phoronix: LLVM Clang OpenMP 4 Support Nears Reality

    It's taken far longer than most anyone would have estimated, but it looks like things may finally be getting close for the mainlining of OpenMP within the LLVM Clang compiler. The good news is that Intel developers have already been working on OpenMP 4.0 support for Clang...

    Fantastic news! The world needs a competitor to GC for advanced computation. I can only hope that all the major vendors get on the band wagon.
