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

This file contains the main features as well as overviews of specific
bug fixes (and other actions) for each version of Open MPI since
version 1.0.

1.3.4
-----

- Fix some issues in OMPI's SRPM with regard to shell_scripts_basename
  and its use with mpi-selector.  Thanks to Bill Johnstone for
  pointing out the problem.
- Added many new MPI job process affinity options to mpirun.  See the
  newly-updated mpirun(1) man page for details.
- Several updates to mpirun's XML output.
- Update to fix a few Valgrind warnings with regards to the ptmalloc2
  allocator and Open MPI's use of PLPA.
- Many updates and fixes to the (non-default) "sm" collective
  component (i.e., native shared memory MPI collective operations).
- Updates and fixes to some MPI_COMM_SPAWN_MULTIPLE corner cases.
- Fix some internal copying functions in Open MPI's use of PLPA.
- Correct some SLURM nodelist parsing logic that may have interfered
  with large jobs.  Additionally, per advice from the SLURM team,
  change the environment variable that we use for obtaining the job's
  allocation.
- Revert to an older, safer (but slower) communicator ID allocation
  algorithm. 
- Fixed minimum distance finding for OpenFabrics devices in the openib
  BTL.
- Relax the parameter checking MPI_CART_CREATE a bit.
- Fix MPI_COMM_SPAWN[_MULTIPLE] to only error-check the info arguments
  on the root process.  Thanks to Federico Golfre Andreasi for
  reporting the problem.
- Fixed some BLCR configure issues.
- Fixed a potential deadlock when the openib BTL was used with
  MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE.
- Fixed dynamic rules selection for the "tuned" coll component.
- Added a launch progress meter to mpirun (useful for large jobs; set
  the orte_report_launch_progress MCA parameter to 1 to see it).
- Reduced the number of file descriptors consumed by each MPI process.
- Add new device IDs for Chelsio T3 RNICs to the openib BTL config file.
- Fix some CRS self component issues.
- Added some MCA parameters to the PSM MTL to tune its run-time
  behavior.
- Fix some VT issues with MPI_BOTTOM/MPI_IN_PLACE.
- Man page updates from the Debain Open MPI package maintainers.
- Add cycle counter support for the Alpha and Sparc platforms.
- Pass visibility flags to libltdl's configure script, resulting in
  those symbols being hidden.  This appears to mainly solve the
  problem of applications attempting to use different versions of
  libltdl from that used to build Open MPI.


1.3.3
-----

- Fix a number of issues with the openib BTL (OpenFabrics) RDMA CM,
  including a memory corruption bug, a shutdown deadlock, and a route
  timeout.  Thanks to David McMillen and Hal Rosenstock for help in
  tracking down the issues.
- Change the behavior of the EXTRA_STATE parameter that is passed to
  Fortran attribute callback functions: this value is now stored
  internally in MPI -- it no longer references the original value
  passed by MPI_*_CREATE_KEYVAL.
- Allow the overriding RFC1918 and RFC3330 for the specification of
  "private" networks, thereby influencing Open MPI's TCP
  "reachability" computations.
- Improve flow control issues in the sm btl, by both tweaking the
  shared memory progression rules and by enabling the "sync" collective

  Open MPI now uses a much more robust memory intercept scheme that is
  quite similar to what is used by MX.  The use of "-lopenmpi-malloc"
  is no longer necessary, is deprecated, and is expected to disappear
  in a future release.  -lopenmpi-malloc will continue to work for the
  duration of the Open MPI v1.3 and v1.4 series.
- Fix some OpenFabrics shutdown errors, both regarding iWARP and SRQ.
- Allow the udapl BTL to work on Solaris platforms that support

  the localhost (instead of simply forking).
- Minor SLURM stdin fixes.
- Fix to run properly under SGE jobs.
- Scalability and latency improvements for shared memory jobs: convert
  to using one message queue instead of N queues.
- Automatically size the shared-memory area (mmap file) to match
  better what is needed;  specifically, so that large-np jobs will start.
- Use fixed-length MPI predefined handles in order to provide ABI
  compatibility between Open MPI releases.
- Fix building of the posix paffinity component to properly get the
  number of processors in loosely tested environments (e.g.,
  FreeBSD).  Thanks to Steve Kargl for reporting the issue.

  Thanks to Seppo Sahrakropi for the bug report.
- Upgraded Open MPI tarballs to use Autoconf 2.63, Automake 1.10.1,
  Libtool 2.2.6a.
- Added missing MPI::Comm::Call_errhandler() function.  Thanks to Dave
  Goodell for bringing this to our attention.
- Increased MPI_SUBVERSION value in mpi.h to 1 (i.e., MPI 2.1).
- Changed behavior of MPI_GRAPH_CREATE, MPI_TOPO_CREATE, and several
  other topology functions per MPI-2.1.
- Fix the type of the C++ constant MPI::IN_PLACE.
- Various enhancements to the openib BTL:
  - Added btl_openib_if_[in|ex]clude MCA parameters for
    including/excluding comma-delimited lists of HCAs and ports.
  - Added RDMA CM support, includng btl_openib_cpc_[in|ex]clude MCA
    parameters

  - Added btl_openib_ib_max_inline_data MCA parameter
  - Added iWARP support
  - Revamped flow control mechansisms to be more efficient
  - "mpi_leave_pinned=1" is now the default when possible,
    automatically improving performance for large messages when
    application buffers are re-used
- Elimiated duplicated error messages when multiple MPI processes fail
  with the same error.
- Added NUMA support to the shared memory BTL.
- Add Valgrind-based memory checking for MPI-semantic checks.
- Add support for some optional Fortran datatypes (MPI_LOGICAL1,
  MPI_LOGICAL2, MPI_LOGICAL4 and MPI_LOGICAL8).
- Remove the use of the STL from the C++ bindings.
- Added support for Platform/LSF job launchers.  Must be Platform LSF
  v7.0.2 or later.
- Updated ROMIO with the version from MPICH2 1.0.7.
- Added RDMA capable one-sided component (called rdma), which
  can be used with BTL components that expose a full one-sided
  interface.
- Added the optional datatype MPI_REAL2. As this is added to the "end of"
  predefined datatypes in the fortran header files, there will not be
  any compatibility issues.
- Added Portable Linux Processor Affinity (PLPA) for Linux.
- Addition of a finer symbols export control via the visibiliy feature
  offered by some compilers.
- Added checkpoint/restart process fault tolerance support. Initially
  support a LAM/MPI-like protocol.

  driver stacks ("openib" BTL).
- Added more stringent MPI API parameter checking to help user-level
  debugging.
- The ptmalloc2 memory manager component is now by default built as
  a standalone library named libopenmpi-malloc.  Users wanting to
  use leave_pinned with ptmalloc2 will now need to link the library
  into their application explicitly.  All other users will use the
  libc-provided allocator instead of Open MPI's ptmalloc2.  This change
  may be overriden with the configure option enable-ptmalloc2-internal
- The leave_pinned options will now default to using mallopt on
  Linux in the cases where ptmalloc2 was not linked in.  mallopt
  will also only be available if munmap can be intercepted (the
  default whenever Open MPI is not compiled with --without-memory-
  manager.
- Open MPI will now complain and refuse to use leave_pinned if
  no memory intercept / mallopt option is available.
- Add option of using Perl-based wrapper compilers instead of the
  C-based wrapper compilers.  The Perl-based version does not
  have the features of the C-based version, but does work better
  in cross-compile environments.

- Added tight integration with Sun N1 Grid Engine (N1GE) 6 and the
  open source Grid Engine.
- Allow building the F90 MPI bindings as shared libraries for most

  limited number peers in both the mvapi and openib BTL components.
  This reduces communication latency over IB channels.
- Numerous performance improvements throughout the entire code base.
- Many minor threading fixes.
- Add a define OMPI_SKIP_CXX to allow the user to skip the mpicxx.h from
  being included in mpi.h. It allows the user to compile C code with a CXX

  is segmented internally, using multiple interfaces or the pipeline
  engine. However, this version only support one event of each type
  simultaneously attached to a communicator.
