Intel announced June 23 that it is now shipping versions of Intel Compiler Professional Edition 11.1 for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. According to the company's news release:
"New features include elements of the recently released Intel Parallel Studio, product support for Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) and updates for integration with Microsoft Visual Studio, Eclipse, and Xcode. The update also incorporates enhancements to the Intel Fortran and C++ compilers, Intel Math Kernel Library and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives.

The latest release of the Intel Cluster Toolkit, Version 3.2, is available for clusters running either Linux or Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server.
