Subject: [hwloc-announce] hwloc v1.4rc2 released
From: Brice Goglin (Brice.Goglin_at_[hidden])
Date: 2012-01-23 04:34:44

We just posted v1.4rc2 on the web. It brings many additional fixes:

+ Fix missing last bit in hwloc_linux_get_thread_cpubind().
  Thanks to Carolina Gómez-Tostón Gutiérrez for reporting the issue.
+ Fix FreeBSD build without cpuid support.
+ Fix several Windows build issues.
+ Fix inline keyword definition in public headers.
+ Fix dependencies in the embedded library.
+ Improve visibility support detection. Thanks to Dave Love for providing
  the patch.
+ Remove references to internal symbols in the tools.

Please test and let us know if you find any issue.

> The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the first
> release candidate for v1.4:
> v1.4rc1 is the first milestone of a major feature release. The most
> noticeable improvement is the ability to assemble the topologies of
> multiple nodes into a single global one. See the Multi-node Topologies
> section in the documentation for details.
> Also please note that 64bits windows builds are now available for
> download.
> * Major features
> + Add "custom" interface and "assembler" tools to build multi-node
> topology. See the Multi-node Topologies section in the documentation
> for details.
> * Interface improvements
> + Add symmetric_subtree object attribute to ease assumptions when consulting
> regular symmetric topologies.
> + Add a CPUModel and CPUType info attribute to Socket objects on Linux
> and Solaris.
> + Add hwloc_get_obj_index_inside_cpuset() to retrieve the "logical" index
> of an object within a subtree of the topology.
> + Add more NVIDIA CUDA helpers in cuda.h and cudart.h to find hwloc objects
> corresponding to CUDA devices.
> * Discovery improvements
> + Add a group object above partial distance matrices to make sure
> the matrices are available in the final topology, except when this
> new object would contradict the existing hierarchy.
> + Grouping by distances now also works when loading from XML.
> + Fix some corner cases in object insertion, for instance when dealing
> with NUMA nodes without any CPU.
> * Backends
> + Implement hwloc_get_area_membind() on Linux.
> + Honor I/O topology flags when importing from XML.
> + Further improve XML-related error reporting.
> + Hide synthetic topology error messages unless HWLOC_SYNTHETIC_VERBOSE=1.
> * Tools
> + Add synthetic exporting of symmetric topologies to lstopo.
> + lstopo --horiz and --vert can now be applied to some specific object types.
> + lstopo -v -p now displays distance matrices with physical indexes.
> + Add hwloc-distances utility to list distances.
> * Documentation
> + Fix and/or document the behavior of most inline functions in hwloc/helper.h
> when the topology contains some I/O or Misc objects.
> + Backend documentation enhancements.
