I'm the author of Pyrit and I wonder If ATI has buried the whole GPGPU thing again?
The SDK 1.4-beta has not been finalized in months despite many, many obvious glitches and bugs.
Although Linux 2.6.29 has been out for a whole while now, ATI has not been delivering new drivers that are compatible to this kernel version - effectivly locking out almost all Linux developers that run on less than a few months old kernel versions.
The OpenCL-functionality should have been on the road in the first half of 2009. Now there is not even a beta.
There is no word, no roadmap, no guideline from ATI what they are all about
