這是昨天的消息，原文請參考《Khronos Drives Momentum of Parallel Computing Standard with Release of OpenCL 1.1 Specification》，OpenCL 的頁面也已經更新了。而在 OpenCL 1.1 裡，比較重要的新功能有：
- Host-thread safety, enabling OpenCL commands to be enqueued from multiple host threads
- Sub-buffer objects to distribute regions of a buffer across multiple OpenCL devices
- User events to enable enqueued OpenCL commands to wait on external events
- Event callbacks that can be used to enqueue new OpenCL commands based on event state changes in a non-blocking manner
- 3-component vector data types
- Global work-offset which enable kernels to operate on different portions of the NDRange
- Memory object destructor callback
- Read, write and copy a 1D, 2D or 3D rectangular region of a buffer object
- Mirrored repeat addressing mode and additional image formats
- New OpenCL C built-in functions such as integer clamp, shuffle and asynchronous strided copies
- Improved OpenGL interoperability through efficient sharing of images and buffers by linking OpenCL event objects to OpenGL fence sync objects
- Optional features in OpenCL 1.0 have been bought into core OpenCL 1.1 including: writes to a pointer of bytes or shorts from a kernel, and conversion of atomics to 32-bit integers in local or global memory.
- OpenCL 1.1 Specification (revision 33, June 11, 2010).
- OpenCL 1.1 C Bindings Specification (revision 4, June 14, 2010).
- OpenCL 1.1 Online Manual Pages.
- OpenCL 1.1 Quick Reference card.
而目前 AMD 和 nVIDIA 似乎都還沒有更新他們產品到 OpenCL 1.1，一般程式開發者要用可能還要等等了。
