OpenCL C Language Changes in Clang
+**The following bugs in the OpenCL header have been fixed:**
+* Added missing ``overloadable`` and ``convergent`` attributes.
+* Removed some erroneous extra ``native_*`` functions.
+**The following bugs in the generation of metadata have been fixed:**
+* Corrected the SPIR version depending on the OpenCL version.
+* Source level address spaces are taken from the SPIR specification.
+* Image types now contain no access qualifier.
+**The following bugs in the AMD target have been fixed:**
+* Corrected the bitwidth of ``size_t`` and NULL pointer value with respect to
+ address spaces.
+* Added ``cl_khr_subgroups``, ``cl_amd_media_ops`` and ``cl_amd_media_ops2``
+ extensions.
+* Added ``cl-denorms-are-zero`` support.
+* Changed address spaces for image objects to be ``constant``.
+* Added little-endian.
+**The following bugs in OpenCL 2.0 have been fixed:**
+* Fixed pipe builtin function return type, added extra argument to generated
+ IR intrinsics to propagate size and alignment information of the pipe packed
+ type.
+* Improved pipe type to accommodate access qualifiers.
+* Added correct address space to the ObjC block generation and ``enqueue_kernel``
+ prototype.
+* Improved handling of integer parameters of ``enqueue_kernel`` prototype. We
+ now allow ``size_t`` instead of ``int`` for specifying block parameter sizes.
+* Allow using NULL (aka ``CLK_NULL_QUEUE``) with ``queue_t``.
+**Improved the following diagnostics:**
+* Disallow address spaces other than ``global`` for kernel pointer parameters.
+* Correct the use of half type argument and pointer assignment with
+ dereferencing.
+* Disallow variadic arguments in functions and blocks.
+* Allow partial initializer for array and struct.
+**Some changes to OpenCL extensions have been made:**
+* Added ``cl_khr_mipmap_image``.
+* Added ``-cl-ext`` flag to allow overwriting supported extensions otherwise
+ set by the target compiled for (Example: ``-cl-ext=-all,+cl_khr_fp16``).
+* New types and functions can now be flexibly added to extensions using the
+ following pragmas instead of modifying the Clang source code:
+ .. code-block:: c
+ #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : begin
+ // declare types and functions associated with the extension here
+ #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : end
+**Miscellaneous changes:**
+* Fix ``__builtin_astype`` to cast between different address space objects.
+* Allow using ``opencl_unroll_hint`` with earlier OpenCL versions than 2.0.
+* Improved handling of floating point literal to default to single precision if
+ fp64 extension is not enabled.
+* Refactor ``sampler_t`` implementation to simplify initializer representation
+ which is now handled as a compiler builtin function with an integer value
+ passed into it.
+* Change fake address space map to use the SPIR convention.
+* Added `the OpenCL manual
+ <https://clang.llvm.org/docs/UsersManual.html#opencl-features>`_ to Clang
+ documentation.
