OpenMP ARB Releases Technical Report 8 with Important Usability Enhancements


SC19 - The OpenMP® Architecture Review Board (ARB) has released Technical Report 8, the first preview for the future OpenMP API, version 5.1.

"We are excited about this first public step towards OpenMP 5.1," said OpenMP Language Committee Chair Bronis R. de Supinski. "While 5.1 will include only a small set of new features, TR8 demonstrates that those additions, such as the assume directive, will provide important usability enhancements."

New Features included in Technical Report 8

The key features that are added in Technical Report 8 include:

"We wanted to give vendors of OpenMP implementations a chance to breathe after the major additions we have made in version 5.0 of the OpenMP API," says Michael Klemm, CEO of the OpenMP ARB. "Yet, Version 5.1 will significantly refine existing features, constitutes a major milestone on the path to OpenMP API Version 6.0, and demonstrates the industry-wide commitment to full support of modern languages and hardware from the OpenMP ARB."

Please provide feedback on the Technical Report

TR8 is an important milestone on the path to OpenMP 5.1. Users and implementers are encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed API. Feedback can be posted on the OpenMP Forum.
