I'm happy to announce that the dcompute modifications to LDC are now
in the master branch of LDC. The dcompute extensions require LLVM
3.9.1 or greater for NVPTX/CUDA and my fork of LLVM for SPIRV.
Someone (sorry I've forgotten who!) at dconf said they'd make a
docker image of the dependencies (ldc llvm), if you're reading please
let me know! Or if someone else wants to do it thats good too.
I'm still quite busy until July (honours thesis), but if anyone
wanting to contribute to either the runtime stuff (all D), LDC 
or LLVM (mostly C++) I'm happy to answer any questions, providing
testing and performance feedback on diverse systems is also
appreciated. Feel free to drop a line at https://gitter.im/libmir/public
Can someone please write up a post e.g. for the D blog to act as the
official announcement (with a quick tutorial)? That way we can
announce it to the wider programming community.
I promised Mike a blog post at dconf, but I'd prefer this to be done
after I hand in my thesis, so that I can:
a) concentrate on it and
b) keep the ball rolling after it is announced.
I will be working for Laeeth next semester with some time reserved for
dcompute and much more time available as I'll only be doing one (or
possibly two units, with a lot of time waiting for tanks to reach steady
state). Plus I think if people start to get familiar with the project
then the efforts will be much more coordinated once the announcement is
made and therefore by perception more attractive to potential users not
already familiar with D.
Ok so announce only within D community atm. Good to know :)
