We are pleased to announce an update to the Intel® Cilk™ Plus Language Specification. This document describes the syntax and semantics of the Cilk™ Plus language constructs that were added to the C and C++ programming languages. This version of the specification was relseased in September, 2013 and supersedes the 1.1 version of the same specification released in July, 2011. This version adds no new features to the language extensions described in the V1.1 specification, but contains numerous corrections and clarifications. A few obsolete constructs were removed. It is recommended that implementors adding Cilk Plus extensions to their compilers base their changes on this document instead of the V1.1 document.
The new spec is available on the Open Specifications download page on cilkplus.org.
