The OpenMP ARB, the non-profit that owns the OpenMP brand, released the fourth version of the OpenMP API a few months ago. After a few months of use, players in the high performance compute (HPC) and digital signal processing (DSP) spaces praise the new release and have developed many products on the updated API. Upgrades available in 4.0 include accelerator support, SIMD constructs, error handling, thread affinity, tasking extensions, Fortran 2003 support, user defined reductions, and more.
Cabforce; advanced booking service for taxis, minibuses and executive cars; just announced its Cabforce Taxi Content Hub. The new offering provides the Taxi API that developers can integrate with third party travel applications to retrieve routes and rates as well as book flat-rate rides. The API grants full access to Cabforce's platform which organizes a fleet of more than 10,000 cabs and private cars throughout Europe and New York.
