Getting back into OpenCL - best driver to use?

I've been away on other projects for some time, and I'd like to get back to my work on OpenCL.  For Linux x64 with an R9 Nano, what's the best driver to use for an OpenCL ICD in linux?  AMDGPU-Pro?  Has something else emerged?

Re: Getting back into OpenCL - best driver to use?

AMDGPU-Pro (16.60) [ AMDGPU-PRO Driver for Linux Release Notes ] is the latest driver for Linux. However, if you want to access OpenCL 2.0, you cannot use this driver because it currently supports OpneCL 1.2 only. For OpenCL 2.0, you need to use Crimson 15.12 [Desktop ].

Thank you.  I'm working on it now

When will OpenCL 2.0 come to AMDGPU-PRO?

AFAIK, there is a plan to include some of the key features from OpenCL 2.0. Can't say about the full OpenCL 2.0 support right now.
