We are pleased to announce the release of Thrust v1.8, an open-source C++ library for developing high-performance parallel applications. Modeled after the C++ Standard Template Library, Thrust brings a familiar abstraction layer to the realm of parallel computing
Thrust 1.8.0 introduces support for algorithm invocation from CUDA
__device__ code, support
for CUDA streams, and algorithm performance improvements. Users may now invoke Thrust algorithms
__device__ code, providing a parallel algorithms library to CUDA programmers
authoring custom kernels, as well as allowing Thrust programmers to nest their algorithm calls
within functors. The
thrust::seq execution policy allows users to require sequential algorithm
execution in the calling thread and makes a sequential algorithms library available to individual
CUDA threads. The
.on(stream) syntax allows users to request a CUDA stream for kernels launched
during algorithm execution. Finally, new CUDA algorithm implementations provide substantial
Refer to the CHANGELOG for a complete list of improvements since v1.7.
