Michael Suess with some thoughts on the latest in OpenMP

Michael’s just returned from IWOMP in Beijing, and has a quick post about some of the latest developments in OpenMP. I was especially interested in tasking

Tasking is the next big thing in OpenMP 3.0. And it really is big. …New classes of applications are able to be parallelized with OpenMP without much of a problem (e.g. recursive algorithms or other, more irregular ones). The last details of tasking are being finalized at this time but this is the one feature that will most definitely make it into OpenMP 3.0. Very exciting.
