macOS Big Sur

Post by mcosgrove »

Hello OpenMP,

Is OpenMP planning to release an update for macOS Big Sur?

My understanding is that currently, OpenMP is not supported on Big Sur.

Thank you,

OpenMP has no control over vendor's releases, so I'm afraid this is entirely down to Apple!

As far as I know the situation for Big Sur has not changed from other recent MacOS versions - you need a separate compiler install to support OpenMP.

Perhaps you can try to build LLVM/clang on Big Sur. See
