The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the release
of v1.11.3:

v1.11.3 addresses all known bugs in the v1.11 series. It also brings
many small improvements (those that shouldn't wait until the future 2.0
release is ready).

The following is a summary of the changes since v1.11.2:

* Bug fixes
  + Fix a memory leak on Linux S/390 hosts with books.
  + Fix /proc/mounts parsing on Linux by using mntent.h.
    Thanks to Nathan Hjelm for reporting the issue.
  + Fix a x86 infinite loop on VMware due to the x2APIC feature being
    advertised without actually being fully supported.
    Thanks to Jianjun Wen for reporting the problem and testing the patch.
  + Fix the return value of hwloc_alloc() on mmap() failure.
    Thanks to Hugo Brunie for reporting the issue.
  + Fix the return value of command-line tools in some error cases.
  + Do not break individual thread bindings during x86 backend discovery in a
    multithreaded process. Thanks to Farouk Mansouri for the report.
  + Fix hwloc-bind --membind for CPU-less NUMA nodes.
  + Fix some corner cases in the XML export/import of application userdata.
* API Improvements
  + Add HWLOC_MEMBIND_BYNODESET flag so that membind() functions accept
    either cpusets or nodesets.
  + Add hwloc_get_area_memlocation() to check where pages are actually
    allocated. Only implemented on Linux for now.
    - There's no _nodeset() variant, but the new flag HWLOC_MEMBIND_BYNODESET
      is supported.
  + Make hwloc_obj_type_sscanf() parse back everything that may be outputted
    by hwloc_obj_type_snprintf().
* Detection Improvements
  + Allow the x86 backend to add missing cache levels, so that it completes
    what the Solaris backend lacks.
    Thanks to Ryan Zezeski for reporting the issue.
  + Do not filter-out FibreChannel PCI adapters by default anymore.
    Thanks to Matt Muggeridge for the report.
  + Add support for CUDA compute capability 6.x.
* Tools
  + Add --support to hwloc-info to list supported features, just like with
    - Also add --objects and --topology to explicitly switch between the
      default modes.
  + Add --tid to let hwloc-bind operate on individual threads on Linux.
  + Add --nodeset to let hwloc-bind report memory binding as NUMA node sets.
  + hwloc-annotate and lstopo don't drop application userdata from XMLs anymore.
    - Add --cu to hwloc-annotate to drop these application userdata.
  + Make the hwloc-dump-hwdata dump directory configurable through configure
    options such as --runstatedir or --localstatedir.
* Misc Improvements
  + Add systemd service template contrib/systemd/hwloc-dump-hwdata.service
    for launching hwloc-dump-hwdata at boot on Linux.
    Thanks to Grzegorz Andrejczuk.
  + Add HWLOC_PLUGINS_BLACKLIST environment variable to prevent some plugins
    from being loaded. Thanks to Alexandre Denis for the suggestion.
  + Small improvements for various Windows build systems,
    thanks to Jonathan L Peyton and Marco Atzeri.

Changes since rc1 are minor.
