Greetings Open MPI users and system administrators. In response to user feedback, Open MPI is changing how its releases will be numbered.
In short, Open MPI will no longer be released using an "odd/even" cadence corresponding to "feature development" and "super stable" releases. Instead, each of the "A.B.C" digits in the Open MPI version number will have a specific meaning, conveying semantic information in the overall release number. The details of this scheme, and our roadmap plans for releases over the next several months, are included in the form of slides, available here: * On my blog: http://blogs.cisco.com/performance/open-mpi-new-versioning-scheme-and-roadmap * On the Open MPI web site: http://www.open-mpi.org/papers/versioning-update-2015/ -- Jeff Squyres jsquy...@cisco.com For corporate legal information go to: http://www.cisco.com/web/about/doing_business/legal/cri/
