The Khronos Group has released the OpenCL 1.2 specification (main site here). As stated on the site, the new functionalities include "seamless sharing of media and surfaces with DirectX® 9 and 11, enhanced image support, custom devices and kernels, device partitioning and separate compilation and linking of objects."
Upon hearing the news, I felt like something of an imbecile. After all, I'm here at the Supercomputing conference, purportedly an OpenCL expert, and I had no idea that a new spec was available. Ah well.
