Subject: [hwloc-announce] Hardware Locality (hwloc) v1.0.2 released
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-07-21 10:09:20


The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.0.2:

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

v1.0.2 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 v1.0.1:

* Public headers can now be included directly from C++ programs.
* Solaris fix for non-contiguous cpu numbers. Thanks to Rolf vandeVaart for
  reporting the issue.
* Darwin 10.4 fix. Thanks to Olivier Cessenat for reporting the issue.
* Revert 1.0.1 patch that ignored sockets with unknown ID values since it
  only slightly helped POWER7 machines with old Linux kernels while it
  prevents recent kernels from getting the complete POWER7 topology.
* Fix hwloc_get_common_ancestor_obj().
* Remove arch-specific bits in public headers.
* Some fixes in the lstopo graphical output.
* Various man page clarifications and minor updates.
