The Open MPI community is pleased to announce the start of the Open MPI 4.1 
release series with the release of Open MPI 4.1.0.  The 4.1 release series 
builds on the 4.0 release series and includes enhancements to OFI and UCX 
communication channels, as well as collectives performance improvements.

The Open MPI 4.1 release series can be downloaded from the Open MPI website:

Changes in 4.1.0 compared to 4.0.x:

- collectives: Add HAN and ADAPT adaptive collectives components.
 Both components are off by default and can be enabled by specifying
 "mpirun --mca coll_adapt_priority 100 --mca coll_han_priority 100 ...".
 We intend to enable both by default in Open MPI 5.0.
- OMPIO is now the default for MPI-IO on all filesystems, including
 Lustre (prior to this, ROMIO was the default for Lustre).  Many
 thanks to Mark Dixon for identifying MPI I/O issues and providing
 access to Lustre systems for testing.
