This is indeed good news. So far I have shunned GPGPU languages since they tend to be proprietary or not generally available. While using API’s like CUDA or RMDP is relatively easy, the last 10% of motivation where always missing for me since it would only work on one platform or cost money.
I hope that OpenCL is going to be adopted fast (I am looking at you nVidia, Intel and ATI!) and becomes as ubiquitous as OpenGL.
Edit: It is official!
