Subject: [hwloc-announce] Hardware Locality (hwloc) v1.0.1 released
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-06-04 09:25:00


The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.0.1:

   http://www.open-mpi.org/projects/hwloc/
   (mirrors will update shortly)

v1.0.1 is a minor bug fix release.

hwloc provides command line tools and a C API to obtain the hierarchical map of key computing elements, such as: NUMA memory nodes, shared caches, processor sockets, processor cores, and processor "threads". hwloc also gathers various attributes such as cache and memory information, and is portable across a variety of different operating systems and platforms.

The following is a summary of the changes since v1.0:

* Various Solaris fixes.
* Fix "non-native" builds on x86 platforms (e.g., when building 32
  bit executables with compilers that natively build 64 bit).
* Ignore sockets with unknown ID values (which fixes issues on POWER7
  machines). Thanks to Greg Bauer for reporting the issue.
* Various man page clarifications and minor updates.
* Fixed memory leaks in hwloc_setup_group_from_min_distance_clique().
* Fix cache type filtering on MS Windows 7. Thanks to Αλέξανδρος
  Î Î±Ï€Î±Î´Î¿Î³Î¹Î±Î½Î½Î¬Îº for reporting the issue.
* Fixed warnings when compiling with -DNDEBUG.
