===========================================================================

This file contains the main features as well as overviews of specific
bug fixes (and other actions) for each version of hwloc since version
0.9 (as initially released as "libtopology", then re-branded to "hwloc"
in v0.9.1).


Version 1.5.2
-------------
* Fix some DIR descriptor leaks on Linux.
* Fix I/O device lists when some were filtered out after a XML import.
* Add missing Backend string info on Solaris in most cases.
* Fix the removal of I/O objects when importing a I/O-enabled XML topology
  without any I/O topology flag.


Version 1.5.1
-------------
* Fix block OS device detection on Linux kernel 3.3 and later.
  Thanks to Guy Streeter for reporting the problem and testing the fix.
* Fix the cpuid code in the x86 backend (for FreeBSD). Thanks to
  Sebastian Kuzminsky for reporting problems and testing patches.
* Fix 64bit detection on FreeBSD.
* Fix some corner cases in the management of the thissystem flag with
  respect to topology flags and environment variables.
* Fix some corner cases in command-line parsing checks in hwloc-distrib
  and hwloc-distances.
* Make sure we do not miss some block OS devices on old Linux kernels
  when a single PCI device has multiple IDE hosts/devices behind it.
* Do not disable I/O devices or instruction caches in hwloc-assembler output.


Version 1.5.0
-------------
* Backends
  + Do not limit the number of processors to 1024 on Solaris anymore.
  + Gather total machine memory on FreeBSD.
  + XML topology files do not depend on the locale anymore. Float numbers
    such as NUMA distances or PCI link speeds now always use a dot as a
    decimal separator.
  + Add instruction caches detection on Linux, AIX, Windows and Darwin.
  + Add get_last_cpu_location() support for the current thread on AIX.
  + Support binding on AIX when threads or processes were bound with
    bindprocessor(). Thanks to Hendryk Bockelmann for reporting the issue
    and testing patches, and to Farid Parpia for explaining the binding
    interfaces.
  + Improve AMD topology detection in the x86 backend (for FreeBSD) using
    the topoext feature.
* API
  + Increase HWLOC_API_VERSION to 0x00010500 so that API changes may be
    detected at build-time.
  + Add a cache type attribute describind Data, Instruction and Unified
    caches. Caches with different types but same depth (for instance L1d
    and L1i) are placed on different levels.
  + Add hwloc_get_cache_type_depth() to retrieve the hwloc level depth of
    of the given cache depth and type, for instance L1i or L2.
    It helps  disambiguating the case where hwloc_get_type_depth() returns
    HWLOC_TYPE_DEPTH_MULTIPLE.
  + Instruction caches are ignored unless HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_ICACHES is
    passed to hwloc_topology_set_flags() before load.
  + Add hwloc_ibv_get_device_osdev_by_name() OpenFabrics helper in
    openfabrics-verbs.h to find the hwloc OS device object corresponding to
    an OpenFabrics device.
* Tools
  + Add lstopo-no-graphics, a lstopo built without graphical support to
    avoid dependencies on external libraries such as Cairo and X11. When
    supported, graphical outputs are only available in the original lstopo
    program.
    - Packagers splitting lstopo and lstopo-no-graphics into different
      packages are advised to use the alternatives system so that lstopo
      points to the best available binary.
  + Instruction caches are enabled in lstopo by default. User --no-icaches
    to disable them.
  + Add -t/--threads to show threads in hwloc-ps.
* Removal of obsolete components
  + Remove the old cpuset interface (hwloc/cpuset.h) which is deprecated and
    superseded by the bitmap API (hwloc/bitmap.h) since v1.1.
    hwloc_cpuset and nodeset types are still defined, but all hwloc_cpuset_*
    compatibility wrappers are now gone.
  + Remove Linux libnuma conversion helpers for the deprecated and
    broken nodemask_t interface.
  + Remove support for "Proc" type name, it was superseded by "PU" in v1.0.
  + Remove hwloc-mask symlinks, it was replaced by hwloc-calc in v1.0.
* Misc
  + Fix PCIe 3.0 link speed computation.
  + Non-printable characters are dropped from strings during XML export.
  + Fix importing of escaped characters with the minimalistic XML backend.
  + Assert hwloc_is_thissystem() in several I/O related helpers.
  + Fix some memory leaks in the x86 backend for FreeBSD.
  + Minor fixes to ease native builds on Windows.
  + Limit the number of retries when operating on all threads within a
    process on Linux if the list of threads is heavily getting modified.


Version 1.4.2
-------------
* Fix build on Solaris 9 and earlier when fabsf() is not a compiler
  built-in. Thanks to Igor Galić for reporting the problem.
* Fix support for more than 32 processors on Windows. Thanks to Hartmut
  Kaiser for reporting the problem.
* Fix process-wide binding and cpulocation routines on Linux when some
  threads disappear in the meantime. Thanks to Vlad Roubtsov for reporting
  the issue.
* Make installed scripts executable. Thanks to Jirka Hladky for reporting
  the problem.
* Fix libtool revision management when building for Windows. This fix was
  also released as hwloc v1.4.1.1 Windows builds. Thanks to Hartmut Kaiser
  for reporting the problem.
* Fix the __hwloc_inline keyword in public headers when compiling with a
  C++ compiler.
* Add Port info attribute to network OS devices inside OpenFabrics PCI
  devices so as to identify which interface corresponds to which port.
* Document requirements for interoperability helpers: I/O devices discovery
  is required for some of them; the topology must match the current host
  for most of them.


Version 1.4.1
-------------
* This release contains all changes from v1.3.2.
* Fix hwloc_alloc_membind, thanks Karl Napf for reporting the issue.
* Fix memory leaks in some get_membind() functions.
* Fix helpers converting from Linux libnuma to hwloc (hwloc/linux-libnuma.h)
  in case of out-of-order NUMA node ids.
* Fix some overzealous assertions in the distance grouping code.
* Workaround BIOS reporting empty I/O locality in cuda and openfabrics
  helpers on Linux. Thanks to Albert Solernou for reporting the problem.
* Install a valgrind suppressions file hwloc-valgrind.supp (see the FAQ).
* Fix memory binding documentation. Thanks to Karl Napf for reporting the
  issues.


Version 1.4.0 (does not contain all v1.3.2 changes)

    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.

Version 1.1.0
-------------

* API
  + Increase HWLOC_API_VERSION to 0x00010100 so that API changes may be
    detected at build-time.
  + Add a memory binding interface.
  + The cpuset API (hwloc/cpuset.h) is now deprecated. It is replaced by
    the bitmap API (hwloc/bitmap.h) which offers the same features with more
    generic names since it applies to CPU sets, node sets and more.
    Backward compatibility with the cpuset API and ABI is still provided but
    it will be removed in a future release.
    Old types (hwloc_cpuset_t, ...) are still available as a way to clarify
    what kind of hwloc_bitmap_t each API function manipulates.
    Upgrading to the new API only requires to replace hwloc_cpuset_ function
    calls with the corresponding hwloc_bitmap_ calls, with the following
    renaming exceptions:
    - hwloc_cpuset_cpu -> hwloc_bitmap_only
    - hwloc_cpuset_all_but_cpu -> hwloc_bitmap_allbut
    - hwloc_cpuset_from_string -> hwloc_bitmap_sscanf
  + Add an `infos' array in each object to store couples of info names and
    values. It enables generic storage of things like the old dmi board infos
    that were previously stored in machine specific attributes.
  + Add linesize cache attribute.
* Features
  + Bitmaps (and thus CPU sets and node sets) are dynamically (re-)allocated,
    the maximal number of CPUs (HWLOC_NBMAXCPUS) has been removed.
  + Improve the distance-based grouping code to better support irregular
    distance matrices.
  + Add support for device-tree to get cache information (useful on Power
    architectures).
* Helpers
  + Add NVIDIA CUDA helpers in cuda.h and cudart.h to ease interoperability
    with CUDA Runtime and Driver APIs.
  + Add Myrinet Express helper in myriexpress.h to ease interoperability.
* Tools
  + lstopo now displays physical/OS indexes by default in graphical mode
    (use -l to switch back to logical indexes). The textual output still uses
    logical by default (use -p to switch to physical indexes).
  + lstopo prefixes logical indexes with `L#' and physical indexes with `P#'.
    Physical indexes are also printed as `P#N' instead of `phys=N' within
    object attributes (in parentheses).
  + Add a legend at the bottom of the lstopo graphical output, use --no-legend
    to remove it.
  + Add hwloc-ps to list process' bindings.
  + Add --membind and --mempolicy options to hwloc-bind.
  + Improve tools command-line options by adding a generic --input option
    (and more) which replaces the old --xml, --synthetic and --fsys-root.
  + Cleanup lstopo output configuration by adding --output-format.
  + Add --intersect in hwloc-calc, and replace --objects with --largest.
  + Add the ability to work on standard input in hwloc-calc.
  + Add --from, --to and --at in hwloc-distrib.
  + Add taskset-specific functions and command-line tools options to
    manipulate CPU set strings in the format of the taskset program.
  + Install hwloc-gather-topology.sh on Linux.
