===========================================================================
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.
As more fully described in the "Software Version Number" section in
the README file, Open MPI typically releases two separate version
series simultaneously. Since these series have different goals and
are semi-independent of each other, a single NEWS-worthy item may be
introduced into different series at different times. For example,
feature F was introduced in the vA.B series at version vA.B.C, and was
later introduced into the vX.Y series at vX.Y.Z.
The first time feature F is released, the item will be listed in the
vA.B.C section, denoted as:
(** also to appear: X.Y.Z) -- indicating that this item is also
likely to be included in future release
version vX.Y.Z.
When vX.Y.Z is later released, the same NEWS-worthy item will also be
included in the vX.Y.Z section and be denoted as:
(** also appeared: A.B.C) -- indicating that this item was previously
included in release version vA.B.C.

(shared memory communications) that, in rare instances, can cause
MPI processes to crash or incorrectly classify (or effectively drop)
an MPI message sent via shared memory. If you are using the "ob1"
PML with "vader" for shared memory communication (note that vader is
the default for shared memory communication with ob1), you need to
upgrade to v3.1.2 or later to fix this issue. You may also upgrade
to the following versions to fix this issue:
- Open MPI v2.1.5 (expected end of August, 2018) or later in the
v2.1.x series

- Update internal PMIx to v2.1.2rc2 to fix forward version compatibility.
- Add new MCA parameter osc_sm_backing_store to allow users to specify
where in the filesystem the backing file for the shared memory
one-sided component should live. Defaults to /dev/shm on Linux.
- Fix potential hang on non-x86 platforms when using builds with
optimization flags turned off.
- Disable osc/pt2pt when using MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE due to numerous
race conditions in the component.
- Fix dummy variable names for the mpi and mpi_f08 Fortran bindings to
match the MPI standard. This may break applications which use
name-based parameters in Fortran which used our internal names
rather than those documented in the MPI standard.
- Revamp Java detection to properly handle new Java versions which do
not provide a javah wrapper.
- Fix RMA function signatures for use-mpi-f08 bindings to have the
asynchonous property on all buffers.
- Improved configure logic for finding the UCX library.

still not a supported platform, but it is no longer automatically
disabled. See
https://github.com/open-mpi/ompi/issues/4349#issuecomment-374970982
for more information.
- The output-filename option for mpirun is now converted to an
absolute path before being passed to other nodes.

- Yalla PML improvements: Fix error with irregular contiguous datatypes.
- Openib BTL: disable XRC support by default.
- TCP BTL: Add check to detect and ignore connections from processes
that aren't MPI (such as IDS probes) and verify that source and
destination are using the same version of Open MPI, fix issue with very
large message transfer.
- ompi_info parsable output now escapes double quotes in values, and
also quotes values can contains colons. Thanks to Lev Givon for the
suggestion.
- CUDA-aware support can now handle GPUs within a node that do not
support CUDA IPC. Earlier versions would get error and abort.
- Add a mca parameter ras_base_launch_orted_on_hn to allow for launching
MPI processes on the same node where mpirun is executing using a separate
orte daemon, rather than the mpirun process. This may be useful to set to
true when using SLURM, as it improves interoperability with SLURM's signal
propagation tools. By default it is set to false, except for Cray XC systems.
- Remove LoadLeveler RAS support.
- Remove IB XRC support from the OpenIB BTL due to lack of support.
- Add functionality for IBM s390 platforms. Note that regular
regression testing does not occur on the s390 and it is not
considered a supported platform.

3.0.5 -- November, 2019
-----------------------
- Fix OMPIO issue limiting file reads/writes to 2GB. Thanks to
Richard Warren for reporting the issue.
- At run time, automatically disable Linux cross-memory attach (CMA)
for vader BTL (shared memory) copies when running in user namespaces
(i.e., containers). Many thanks to Adrian Reber for raising the
issue and providing the fix.
- Sending very large MPI messages using the ofi MTL will fail with
some of the underlying Libfabric transports (e.g., PSM2 with
messages >=4GB, verbs with messages >=2GB). Prior version of Open
MPI failed silently; this version of Open MPI invokes the
appropriate MPI error handler upon failure. See
https://github.com/open-mpi/ompi/issues/7058 for more details.
Thanks to Emmanuel Thomé for raising the issue.
- Fix case where 0-extent datatypes might be eliminated during
optimization. Thanks to Github user @tjahns for raising the issue.

stack starting from MPI_Init, which is helpful with parallel
debuggers. Thanks to James Clark for the report and initial fix.
- Fixed inadvertant use of bitwise operators in the MPI C++ bindings
header files. Thanks to Bert Wesarg for the report and the fix.
- Added configure option --disable-wrappers-runpath (alongside the
already-existing --disable-wrappers-rpath option) to prevent Open
MPI's configure script from automatically adding runpath CLI options
to the wrapper compilers.

-------------------
- Disable osc/pt2pt when using MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE due to numerous
race conditions in the component.
- Fix dummy variable names for the mpi and mpi_f08 Fortran bindings to
match the MPI standard. This may break applications which use
name-based parameters in Fortran which used our internal names

option for provider by default, Add support for reading multiple
CQ events in ofi_progress.
- PSM2 MTL improvements: Allow use of GPU buffers, thread fixes.
- Numerous corrections to memchecker behavior.
- Add a mca parameter ras_base_launch_orted_on_hn to allow for launching
MPI processes on the same node where mpirun is executing using a separate
orte daemon, rather than the mpirun process. This may be useful to set to
true when using SLURM, as it improves interoperability with SLURM's signal
propagation tools. By default it is set to false, except for Cray XC systems.
- Fix a problem reported on the mailing separately by Kevin McGrattan and Stephen
Guzik about consistency issues on NFS file systems when using OMPIO. This fix
also introduces a new mca parameter fs_ufs_lock_algorithm which allows to
control the locking algorithm used by ompio for read/write operations. By
default, ompio does not perfom locking on local UNIX file systems, locks the
entire file per operation on NFS file systems, and selective byte-range
locking on other distributed file systems.
- Add an mca parameter pmix_server_usock_connections to allow mpirun to
support applications statically built against the Open MPI v2.x release,
or installed in a container along with the Open MPI v2.x libraries. It is
set to false by default.
3.0.0 -- September, 2017
------------------------
Major new features:
- Use UCX allocator for OSHMEM symmetric heap allocations to optimize intra-node
data transfers. UCX SPML only.
- Use UCX multi-threaded API in the UCX PML. Requires UCX 1.0 or later.
- Added support for Flux PMI
- Update embedded PMIx to version 2.1.0
- Update embedded hwloc to version 1.11.7
Changes in behavior compared to prior versions:
- Per Open MPI's versioning scheme (see the README), increasing the
major version number to 3 indicates that this version is not
ABI-compatible with prior versions of Open MPI. In addition, there may
be differences in MCA parameter names and defaults from previous releases.
Command line options for mpirun and other commands may also differ from
previous versions. You will need to recompile MPI and OpenSHMEM applications
to work with this version of Open MPI.
- With this release, Open MPI supports MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE by default.
- New configure options have been added to specify the locations of libnl
and zlib.
- A new configure option has been added to request Flux PMI support.
- The help menu for mpirun and related commands is now context based.
"mpirun --help compatibility" generates the help menu in the same format
as previous releases.
Removed legacy support:
- AIX is no longer supported.
- Loadlever is no longer supported.
- OpenSHMEM currently supports the UCX and MXM transports via the ucx and ikrit
SPMLs respectively.
- Remove IB XRC support from the OpenIB BTL due to lack of support.
- Remove support for big endian PowerPC.
- Remove support for XL compilers older than v13.1
Known issues:
- MPI_Connect/accept between applications started by different mpirun
commands will fail, even if ompi-server is running.
2.1.5 -- August 2018
--------------------
- A subtle race condition bug was discovered in the "vader" BTL
(shared memory communications) that, in rare instances, can cause
MPI processes to crash or incorrectly classify (or effectively drop)
an MPI message sent via shared memory. If you are using the "ob1"
PML with "vader" for shared memory communication (note that vader is
the default for shared memory communication with ob1), you need to
upgrade to v2.1.5 to fix this issue. You may also upgrade to the
following versions to fix this issue:
- Open MPI v3.0.1 (released March, 2018) or later in the v3.0.x
series
- Open MPI v3.1.2 (expected end of August, 2018) or later
- A link issue was fixed when the UCX library was not located in the
linker-default search paths.
2.1.4 -- August, 2018
---------------------
Bug fixes/minor improvements:
- Disable the POWER 7/BE block in configure. Note that POWER 7/BE is
still not a supported platform, but it is no longer automatically
disabled. See
https://github.com/open-mpi/ompi/issues/4349#issuecomment-374970982
for more information.
- Fix bug with request-based one-sided MPI operations when using the
"rdma" component.

whenever possible. Thanks to Themos Tsikas for reporting the
issue.
- Fix array of argv handling for the Fortran bindings of
MPI_COMM_SPAWN_MULTIPLE (and its associated man page).
- Make NAG Fortran compiler support more robust in configure.
- Disable the "pt2pt" one-sided MPI component when MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE
is used. This component is simply not safe in MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE
scenarios, and will not be fixed in the v2.1.x series.
- Make the "external" hwloc component fail gracefully if it is tries
to use an hwloc v2.x.y installation. hwloc v2.x.y will not be
supported in the Open MPI v2.1.x series.
- Fix "vader" shared memory support for messages larger than 2GB.
Thanks to Heiko Bauke for the bug report.
- Configure fixes for external PMI directory detection. Thanks to

https://github.com/open-mpi/ompi/milestone/28
2.1.0 -- March, 2017
--------------------
Major new features:
- The main focus of the Open MPI v2.1.0 release was to update to PMIx
v1.2.1. When using PMIx (e.g., via mpirun-based launches, or via
direct launches with recent versions of popular resource managers),
launch time scalability is improved, and the run time memory
footprint is greatly decreased when launching large numbers of MPI /
OpenSHMEM processes.

- The usnic BTL now supports MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE.
- General/overall performance improvements to MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE.
- Add a summary message at the bottom of configure that tells you many
of the configuration options specified and/or discovered by Open
MPI.
Changes in behavior compared to prior versions:
- None.
Removed legacy support:
- The ptmalloc2 hooks have been removed from the Open MPI code base.
This is not really a user-noticable change; it is only mentioned
here because there was much rejoycing in the Open MPI developer
community.
Bug fixes/minor improvements:
- New MCA parameters:
- iof_base_redirect_app_stderr_to_stdout: as its name implies, it
combines MPI / OpenSHMEM applications' stderr into its stdout
stream.
- opal_event_include: allow the user to specify which FD selection
mechanism is used by the underlying event engine.
- opal_stacktrace_output: indicate where stacktraces should be sent
upon MPI / OpenSHMEM process crashes ("none", "stdout", "stderr",
"file:filename").
- orte_timeout_for_stack_trace: number of seconds to wait for stack
traces to be reported (or <=0 to wait forever).
- mtl_ofi_control_prog_type/mtl_ofi_data_prog_type: specify libfabric
progress model to be used for control and data.

2.0.0 -- 12 July 2016
---------------------
**********************************************************************
* Open MPI is now fully MPI-3.1 compliant
**********************************************************************
Major new features:
- Many enhancements to MPI RMA. Open MPI now maps MPI RMA operations
on to native RMA operations for those networks which support this
capability.
- Greatly improved support for MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE (when configured
with --enable-mpi-thread-multiple).
- Enhancements to reduce the memory footprint for jobs at scale. A
new MCA parameter, "mpi_add_procs_cutoff", is available to set the
threshold for using this feature.
- Completely revamped support for memory registration hooks when using
OS-bypass network transports.
- Significant OMPIO performance improvements and many bug fixes.
- Add support for PMIx - Process Management Interface for Exascale.
Version 1.1.2 of PMIx is included internally in this release.
- Add support for PLFS file systems in Open MPI I/O.
- Add support for UCX transport.
- Simplify build process for Cray XC systems. Add support for
using native SLURM.
- Add a --tune mpirun command line option to simplify setting many
environment variables and MCA parameters.
- Add a new MCA parameter "orte_default_dash_host" to offer an analogue
to the existing "orte_default_hostfile" MCA parameter.
- Add the ability to specify the number of desired slots in the mpirun
--host option.
Changes in behavior compared to prior versions:
- In environments where mpirun cannot automatically determine the
number of slots available (e.g., when using a hostfile that does not
specify "slots", or when using --host without specifying a ":N"
suffix to hostnames), mpirun now requires the use of "-np N" to
specify how many MPI processes to launch.
- The MPI C++ bindings -- which were removed from the MPI standard in
v3.0 -- are no longer built by default and will be removed in some
future version of Open MPI. Use the --enable-mpi-cxx-bindings
configure option to build the deprecated/removed MPI C++ bindings.
- ompi_info now shows all components, even if they do not have MCA
parameters. The prettyprint output now separates groups with a
dashed line.
- OMPIO is now the default implementation of parallel I/O, with the
exception for Lustre parallel filesystems (where ROMIO is still the
default). The default selection of OMPI vs. ROMIO can be controlled
via the "--mca io ompi|romio" command line switch to mpirun.
- Per Open MPI's versioning scheme (see the README), increasing the
major version number to 2 indicates that this version is not
ABI-compatible with prior versions of Open MPI. You will need to
recompile MPI and OpenSHMEM applications to work with this version
of Open MPI.
- Removed checkpoint/restart code due to loss of maintainer. :-(
- Change the behavior for handling certain signals when using PSM and
PSM2 libraries. Previously, the PSM and PSM2 libraries would trap
certain signals in order to generate tracebacks. The mechanism was
found to cause issues with Open MPI's own error reporting mechanism.
If not already set, Open MPI now sets the IPATH_NO_BACKTRACE and
HFI_NO_BACKTRACE environment variables to disable PSM/PSM2's
handling these signals.
Removed legacy support:
- Removed support for OS X Leopard.
- Removed support for Cray XT systems.
- Removed VampirTrace.
- Removed support for Myrinet/MX.
- Removed legacy collective module:ML.
- Removed support for Alpha processors.
- Removed --enable-mpi-profiling configure option.

1.7.4: 5 Feb 2014
-----------------
**********************************************************************
* CRITICAL CHANGE
*
* As of release 1.7.4, OpenMPI's default mapping, ranking, and binding
* settings have changed:
*
* Mapping:
* if #procs <= 2, default to map-by core
* if #procs > 2, default to map-by socket
* Ranking:
* if default mapping is used, then default to rank-by slot
* if map-by <obj> is given, then default to rank-by <obj>,
* where <obj> is whatever object we mapped against
* Binding:
* default to bind-to core
*
* Users can override any of these settings individually using the
* corresponding MCA parameter. Note that multi-threaded applications
* in particular may want to override at least the binding default
* to allow threads to use multiple cores.

- Add a new checksum PML variation on ob1 (main MPI point-to-point
communication engine) to detect memory corruption in node-to-node
messages
- Add a new configuration option to add padding to the openib
header so the data is aligned
- Add a new configuration option to use an alternative checksum algo
when using the checksum PML
- Fixed a problem reported by multiple users on the mailing list that
the LSF support would fail to find the appropriate libraries at
run-time.
- Allow empty shell designations from getpwuid(). Thanks to Sergey
Koposov for the bug report.
- Ensure that mpirun exits with non-zero status when applications die
due to user signal. Thanks to Geoffroy Pignot for suggesting the
fix.
- Ensure that MPI_VERSION / MPI_SUBVERSION match what is returned by
MPI_GET_VERSION. Thanks to Rob Egan for reporting the error.
- Updated MPI_*KEYVAL_CREATE functions to properly handle Fortran
extra state.
- A variety of ob1 (main MPI point-to-point communication engine) bug
fixes that could have caused hangs or seg faults.
- Do not install Open MPI's signal handlers in MPI_INIT if there are
already signal handlers installed. Thanks to Kees Verstoep for
bringing the issue to our attention.
- Fix GM support to not seg fault in MPI_INIT.
- Various VampirTrace fixes.
- Various PLPA fixes.
- No longer create BTLs for invalid (TCP) devices.
- Various man page style and lint cleanups.
- Fix critical OpenFabrics-related bug noted here:
http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/announce/2009/03/0029.php.
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
relaxed PCI ordering.
- Fix problem where the mpirun would sometimes use rsh/ssh to launch on
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.
- Fix --with-libnuma handling in configure. Thanks to Gus Correa for
reporting the problem.
1.3.1: 19 Mar 2009
------------------
- Added "sync" coll component to allow users to synchronize every N
collective operations on a given communicator.
- Increased the default values of the IB and RNR timeout MCA parameters.
- Fix a compiler error noted by Mostyn Lewis with the PGI 8.0 compiler.
- Fix an error that prevented stdin from being forwarded if the
rsh launcher was in use. Thanks to Branden Moore for pointing out
the problem.
- Correct a case where the added datatype is considered as contiguous but
has gaps in the beginning.
- Fix an error that limited the number of comm_spawns that could
simultaneously be running in some environments
- Correct a corner case in OB1's GET protocol for long messages; the
error could sometimes cause MPI jobs using the openib BTL to hang.
- Fix a bunch of bugs in the IO forwarding (IOF) subsystem and add some
new options to output to files and redirect output to xterm. Thanks to
Jody Weissmann for helping test out many of the new fixes and
features.
- Fix SLURM race condition.
- Fix MPI_File_c2f(MPI_FILE_NULL) to return 0, not -1. Thanks to
Lisandro Dalcín for the bug report.
- Fix the DSO build of tm PLM.
- Various fixes for size disparity between C int's and Fortran
INTEGER's. Thanks to Christoph van Wullen for the bug report.
- Ensure that mpirun exits with a non-zero exit status when daemons or
processes abort or fail to launch.
- Various fixes to work around Intel (NetEffect) RNIC behavior.
- Various fixes for mpirun's --preload-files and --preload-binary
options.
- Fix the string name in MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS.
- Add ability to forward SIFTSTP and SIGCONT to MPI processes if you
set the MCA parameter orte_forward_job_control to 1.
- Allow the sm BTL to allocate larger amounts of shared memory if
desired (helpful for very large multi-core boxen).
- Fix a few places where we used PATH_MAX instead of OPAL_PATH_MAX,
leading to compile problems on some platforms. Thanks to Andrea Iob
