> The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the first

> The main reason for these releases is to fix a license issue. The GPL
> license of libpci/pciutils taints hwloc whenever you link with it
> (making hwloc *not BSD* anymore).
> We now use libpciaccess (from by default instead of libpci.
> See the Installation section in the documentation for details.
> People are encouraged to upgrade to hwloc v1.6.2 as soon as possible.
> If upgrading is not possible at the moment, these new releases will

> Note that v1.3.3rc1 and v1.4.3rc1 *do not fix all known bugs* in their

> only bring some minor changes that were already queued. Also we won't

> v1.5.2rc1 does fix all known bugs in the v1.5 series (and this one
> comes with a Windows build). The following is a summary of the changes
> since v1.5.1:
> * Use libpciaccess instead of pciutils/libpci by default for I/O discovery.
> pciutils/libpci is only used if --enable-libpci is given to configure
> because its GPL license may taint hwloc. See the Installation section
> in the documentation for details.
> * Fix get_cpubind on Solaris when bound to a single PU with
> processor_bind(). Thanks to Eugene Loh for reporting the problem
> and providing a patch.
> * Fix some DIR descriptor leaks on Linux.
> * Fix I/O device lists when some were filtered out after a XML import.
> * Add missing Backend string info on Solaris in most cases.
> * Fix the removal of I/O objects when importing a I/O-enabled XML topology
> without any I/O topology flag.
> * Fix the output of hwloc-calc -H --hierarchical when using logical
> indexes in the output.
> * Fix the pkg-config output with --libs --static.
> Thanks to Erik Schnetter for reporting one of the problems.
