Where is OpenMP going?

- Written by Alex Duran

Christian Terboven, from Aachen University, wrote a nice summary of recent discussions in the OpenMP language committee which I recommend for people interested in the development of OpenMP.

The git version of our Mercurium compiler already implements a prototype version of the future user defined reductions (UDRs) for OpenMP. I’ll try to write a bit more about them in the near future so people can give it a try :-)
