probably not … but never say never …
does this mean maybe making the use of opencl more modal?
maybe the support to opencl 1.2 is extended and include many gpu, at least in order to partially exploit the acceleration of these cards …

ok stop dreaming …

What are these improvements in opencl?

According to this development blog the focus is currently on getting rid of the kernel compile time when you start a render.
