The most visible change, however, involves the capitalization issue. The guideline has not changed, but the instantiation now recommends mixed-case identifiers with upper-case abbreviations and lower-case reserved words. Several informal surveys and the general consensus of the reviewers showed strong support for this change.
The Complete Examples chapter includes two new examples which highlight portability and the use of tasking. Each of the examples in this chapter are intended to be compilable and executable.
The Consortium invites comments on this guidebook to continue enhancing its quality and usefulness. We will consider suggestions for current guidelines and areas for future expansion. Examples that highlight particular points are most helpful.
