Intel on Wednesday upgraded several of its
suite of tools, adding support for Mac OS X Leopard.
The latest 10.1 version of the Intel C++ Compiler and Intel Fortran Compiler, as well as the Intel Threading Building Blocks, Intel Math Kernel Libraries and Intel Performance Primitives, have been optimized for Leopard and Xcode 3.0.
According to Intel, using Apple’s development environment, Xcode 3.0, and Intel’s compilers, developers are able to take full advantage of Intel multicore processors. Leopard is fully optimized for multicore environments with new developer APIs and tools for developing multithreaded applications.
Intel counts Apple’s own Leopard development team, Adobe and Autodesk as users of its tools.
