Google developers are looking at starting a new LLVM sub-project around parallel runtime and support libraries for GPUs, CPUs, and other platforms. As part of it, they are also looking to open-source their StreamExecutor that wraps around the CUDA and OpenCL runtimes.
Longtime GCC developer Richard Biener shared a status update today concerning the state of the GNU Compiler Collection 6.
We have released PyPy 5.0, about three months after PyPy 4.0.1. We encourage all users of PyPy to update to this version.
PyPy 5.0 has been released today as the alternative Python interpreter and JIT compiler focused on performance and efficiency.
PyPy 5.0 comes down to being faster and leaner, having an upgrade to its C API, profoiling with vmprof is now supported on more platforms, CFFI 1.5.2 for embedding PyPy into a C program, and various other highlights.
