Today, at the 9th International Workshop for OpenCL (IWOCL and SYCLcon 2021) Khronos has released the OpenCL 3.0.7 specifications, with a number of new extensions for extended bit-level operations, new queries for suggested local work group size and PCI device information, and enhanced SPIR-V support for debugging and linking. OpenCL 3.0 was released in September 2020 and Imagination, Intel and NVIDIA are already shipping conformant implementations. A Khronos IWOCL slide deck has more details on numerous recent updates and improvements to the OpenCL developer ecosystem.
