Some of the latest work to talk about on top of our other recent GCC 7 articles include:
- The libgomp changes for supporting OpenMP offloading to NVPTX for in turn being piped to the NVIDIA proprietary driver for GPU offloading.
- The middle-end changes for OpenMP offloading to NVPTX. (Just over a week ago were the back-end changes needed.)
- A lot more HSA code was merged to trunk.
Will be nice when all these GPU accelerator efforts for GCC (and Clang) have finally become a fully-working and supported reality. More details on the GCC offloading support via this Wiki page. GCC 7.1 is due out in early 2017 as the first stable release of GCC 7.
