> Details on MPI-3.0:
> -------------------
> MPI-3.0 is a new version of the MPI standard that better serves the
> needs of the parallel computing community for better platform and
> application support.
>
> Major improvements are:
> - Improvements to the one-sided communication:
> -- New window allocation methods
> -- New RMA interfaces
> -- Special support for clusters of shared memory nodes
> - Nonblocking collectives
> - Scalable sparse collectives (neighbor communication in topoligies)
> - Thread-safe message probe
> - New MPI Fortran binding that is the first time consistent
> with the Fortran standard: the new mpi_f08 module
> - Enhancements for the existing Fortran mpi module
> - Non-collective communicator creation
> - Support for large counts (larger than 32 bit values)
> - Enhancements to MPI_Init, etc.
> - Additional new tools interface
> - The MPIR process acquisition interface (an extra document).
> Major removals are:
> - Some MPI-1.1 functionality that was deprecated since MPI-2.0.
> - For C++ programming, the C++ bindings were substituted
> by the C bindings. For this, several MPI-2.2 errata items
> were defined.
