New LEGO in Store: Sun Studio Express 07/08 with OpenMP 3.0 Support
By yuanlin on Jul 30, 2008
I feel really excited about this. One of the major 3.0 features supported is tasking, which was finalized in the language specification after a looooong labor. It expends a whole new dimension of what OpenMP can do. It is like a new piece of LEGO. We are looking forward to seeing innovative (or not :)) ways of using this new feature.
This is a functional beta release. We are still working on fixing a few bugs and improving performance. One of the best ways to give us feedback is using our online forum.
Here are two short articles that may help users jump-start using the tasking feature.
