The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of v1.10.1.
http://www.open-mpi.org/projects/hwloc/ v1.10.1 will be a bug fix release which addresses all known bugs in the v1.10 series. This new release candidate was delayed due to the lack of AIX access until early 2015. Several additional fixes came in the meantime while working on the next v2.0 major release. The following is a summary of changes since v1.10.1rc1: * Actually remove disallowed NUMA nodes from nodesets when the whole-system flag isn't enabled. * Fix vendor/device names for SR-IOV PCI devices on Linux. * Fix an unlikely crash in case of buggy hierarchical distance matrix. * Fix PU os_index on some AIX releases. Thanks to Hendryk Bockelmann and Erik Schnetter for helping debugging. * Improve some error messages by displaying more information about the hwloc library in use. * Document how to deal with the ABI break when upgrading to the upcoming 2.0 See "How do I handle ABI breaks and API upgrades ?" in the FAQ. The following is a summary of the earlier changes: * Fix the gathering of PCI domains. Thanks to James Custer for reporting the issue and providing a patch. * Fix the merging of identical parent and child in presence of Misc objects. Thanks to Dave Love for reporting the issue. * Fix some misordering of children when merging with ignore_keep_structure() in partially allowed topologies. * Fix an overzealous assertion in the debug code when running on a single-PU host with I/O. Thanks to Thomas Van Doren for reporting the issue. * Don't forget to setup NUMA node object nodesets in x86 backend (for BSDs) and OSF/Tru64 backend. * Fix cpuid-x86 build error with gcc -O3 on x86-32. Thanks to Thomas Van Doren for reporting the issue. * Fix support for future very large caches in the x86 backend. * Change hwloc-ls.desktop into a lstopo.desktop and only install it if lstopo is built with Cairo/X11 support. It cannot work with a non-graphical lstopo or hwloc-ls. * Add support for the renaming of Socket into Package in future releases. * Add support for the replacement of HWLOC_OBJ_NODE with HWLOC_OBJ_NUMANODE in future releases. * Clarify the documentation of distance matrices in hwloc.h and in the manpage of the hwloc-distances. Thanks to Dave Love for the suggestion. -- Brice
