Intel has announced
that its "Cilk Plus" project is now available as a GCC branch.
Essentially, the project is working on extensions to the C and C++
languages to make efficient parallel programming easier. "The
product includes three simple keywords and array notations that allow C and
C++ developers to quickly make productive use of modern processors that
contain both multiple cores and vector units.

Cilk Plus specification
