Pre-release of the open source project ‘CLyther’

Currently in the planning stages of a new open source project, CLyther, is a Python tool similar to Cython. CLyther is a python language extension that makes writing OpenCL code as easy as Python itself. CLyther currently only supports a subset of the Python language definition but adds many new features to OpenCL. CLyther exposes both the OpenCL C library as well as the OpenCL language to python.
