> The Open MPI Team, representing a consortium of research,
> academic, and industry partners, is pleased to announce the
> release of Open MPI version 1.3.3. This release is mainly a
> bug fix release over the v1.3.3 release, but there are few
> new features, including support for Microsoft Windows. We
> strongly recommend that all users upgrade to version 1.3.3 if
> possible.
>
> Version 1.3.3 can be downloaded from the main Open MPI web
> site or any of its mirrors (mirrors will be updating shortly).
>
> Here is a list of changes in v1.3.3 as compared to v1.3.2:
>
> - Fix a number of issues with the openib BTL (OpenFabrics) RDMA CM,
> including a memory corruption bug, a shutdown deadlock, and a route
> timeout. Thanks to David McMillen and Hal Rosenstock for help in
> tracking down the issues.
> - Change the behavior of the EXTRA_STATE parameter that is passed to
> Fortran attribute callback functions: this value is now stored
> internally in MPI -- it no longer references the original value
> passed by MPI_*_CREATE_KEYVAL.
> - Allow the overriding RFC1918 and RFC3330 for the specification of
> "private" networks, thereby influencing Open MPI's TCP
> "reachability" computations.
> - Improve flow control issues in the sm btl, by both tweaking the
> shared memory progression rules and by enabling the "sync"
> collective
> to barrier every 1,000th collective.
> - Various fixes for the IBM XL C/C++ v10.1 compiler.
> - Allow explicit disabling of ptmalloc2 hooks at runtime (e.g., enable
> support for Debain's builtroot system). Thanks to Manuel Prinz and
> the rest of the Debian crew for helping identify and fix
> this issue.
> - Various minor fixes for the I/O forwarding subsystem.
> - Big endian iWARP fixes in the Open Fabrics RDMA CM support.
> - Update support for various OpenFabrics devices in the openib BTL's
> .ini file.
> - Fixed undefined symbol issue with Open MPI's parallel debugger
> message queue support so it can be compiled by Sun Studio
> compilers.
> - Update MPI_SUBVERSION to 1 in the Fortran bindings.
> - Fix MPI_GRAPH_CREATE Fortran 90 binding.
> - Fix MPI_GROUP_COMPARE behavior with regards to MPI_IDENT. Thanks to
> Geoffrey Irving for identifying the problem and supplying the fix.
> - Silence gcc 4.1 compiler warnings about type punning. Thanks to
> Number Cruncher for the fix.
> - Added more Valgrind and other memory-cleanup fixes. Thanks to
> various Open MPI users for help with these issues.
> - Miscellaneous VampirTrace fixes.
> - More fixes for openib credits in heavy-congestion scenarios.
> - Slightly decrease the latency in the openib BTL in some conditions
> (add "send immediate" support to the openib BTL).
> - Ensure to allow MPI_REQUEST_GET_STATUS to accept an
> MPI_STATUS_IGNORE parameter. Thanks to Shaun Jackman for the bug
> report.
> - Added Microsoft Windows support. See README.WINDOWS file for
> details.
