This document contains the release notes for the Clang C/C++/Objective-C/OpenCL
frontend, part of the LLVM Compiler Infrastructure, release 4.0.0. Here we
describe the status of Clang in some detail, including major

OpenCL C Language Changes in Clang
**The following bugs in the OpenCL header have been fixed:**
* Added missing ``overloadable`` and ``convergent`` attributes.
* Removed some erroneous extra ``native_*`` functions.
**The following bugs in the generation of metadata have been fixed:**
* Corrected the SPIR version depending on the OpenCL version.
* Source level address spaces are taken from the SPIR specification.
* Image types now contain no access qualifier.
**The following bugs in the AMD target have been fixed:**
* Corrected the bitwidth of ``size_t`` and NULL pointer value with respect to
address spaces.
* Added ``cl_khr_subgroups``, ``cl_amd_media_ops`` and ``cl_amd_media_ops2``
* Added ``cl-denorms-are-zero`` support.
* Changed address spaces for image objects to be ``constant``.
* Added little-endian.
**The following bugs in OpenCL 2.0 have been fixed:**
* Fixed pipe builtin function return type, added extra argument to generated
IR intrinsics to propagate size and alignment information of the pipe packed
* Improved pipe type to accommodate access qualifiers.
* Added correct address space to the ObjC block generation and ``enqueue_kernel``
* Improved handling of integer parameters of ``enqueue_kernel`` prototype. We
now allow ``size_t`` instead of ``int`` for specifying block parameter sizes.
* Allow using NULL (aka ``CLK_NULL_QUEUE``) with ``queue_t``.
**Improved the following diagnostics:**
* Disallow address spaces other than ``global`` for kernel pointer parameters.
* Correct the use of half type argument and pointer assignment with
* Disallow variadic arguments in functions and blocks.
* Allow partial initializer for array and struct.
**Some changes to OpenCL extensions have been made:**
* Added ``cl_khr_mipmap_image``.
* Added ``-cl-ext`` flag to allow overwriting supported extensions otherwise
set by the target compiled for (Example: ``-cl-ext=-all,+cl_khr_fp16``).
* New types and functions can now be flexibly added to extensions using the
following pragmas instead of modifying the Clang source code:
.. code-block:: c
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : begin
// declare types and functions associated with the extension here
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : end
**Miscellaneous changes:**
* Fix ``__builtin_astype`` to cast between different address space objects.
* Allow using ``opencl_unroll_hint`` with earlier OpenCL versions than 2.0.
* Improved handling of floating point literal to default to single precision if
fp64 extension is not enabled.
* Refactor ``sampler_t`` implementation to simplify initializer representation
which is now handled as a compiler builtin function with an integer value
passed into it.
* Change fake address space map to use the SPIR convention.
* Added `the OpenCL manual
