September 25th 2018: pocl v1.2 released

Release Highlights


Please note that there's an official pocl maintenance policy in place. This text describes the policy and how you can get your favourite project that uses OpenCL to remain regression free in the future pocl releases.

We are looking for active maintainers to look after the ARM(64) and MacOS ports. If you are interested in helping to keep pocl working well on these platforms, please let us know!


Most of the code that landed to the pocl code base during this release cycle was produced for the needs of research funded by various sources. The Customized Parallel Computing research group of Tampere University of Technology (Finland) likes to thank the Academy of Finland (funding decision 297548), Business Finland (FiDiPro project StreamPro, 1846/31/2014), ECSEL JU project FitOptiVis (project number 783162) and HSA Foundation for funding most of the development work in this release. Much appreciated!
