I am just here to say that I am very grateful to Andreas for supporting me
so well when I first started the work, and for continuing to maintain the
cffi branch for so long after I became inactive nearly two years ago.
Thanks a lot also to Yichao Yu and Andreas for picking up the work and
finishing it. I am really happy about that.
All the best,

thanks to the hard work of Marko Bencun and Yichao Yu, the next version
of PyOpenCL will be substantially different internally from the previous

consequence of this is that PyOpenCL now works on Pypy.
This new code is now on the git master branch. (It used to live on the
'cffi' branch. The old Boost wrapper is now on the

I have access to, PyOpenCL passes the same tests as before, on any
Python version more recent than 2.6, including Pypy. Nonetheless, before
I go ahead and release a new PyOpenCL based on this code, I'd like to
get as many of you as I can to try it and report back. If you package
PyOpenCL, or if you have a Mac or a Windows machine, I'd especially like
to hear from you.
