Intel Gt-Py Status?

Hey All...I was wondering if anyone knew about the status of intel Gt-Py. It's a very user friendly python interface to GPU programming, that is seemingly much easier to use than pyCuda or any of the other packages out there (e.g., one doesn't need to touch raw cuda or openGL code).    Here's a link to the presentation I found about it:

I heard it was supposed to be released mid 2016, but that seemingly has not happened.  Perhaps it is too good to be true!

Thank you for your help

Unfortunately, we were unable to continue the project. Intel Python includes numba, which is a tool with similar capabilities and can parallelize for multi-core CPUs as well as GPUs.

Granted the project was discontinued, could the source code please be shared?

I've never seen such a simple GPU hook.
