HPX 1.3.0 Released!

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce the release of HPX 1.3.0! This release focuses on performance and stability improvements. Make sure to read the full release notes to see all new and breaking changes. Thank you once again to everyone in the STE||AR Group and all the volunteers who have provided fixes, opened issues, and improved documentation.

Download the release from our download page, or GitHub page.

The highlights of this release are:

  • Significant performance improvements. Thanks to improvements in the schedulers and executors most parallel algorithms have reduced overheads and perform better especially with small grain sizes.
  • Many stability improvements. Most notably many issues reported by Clang sanitizers have been fixed.
  • To improve usability in single-node usage, HPX now defaults to not turning on networking if running on a single node. This means that it is now possible to run multiple instances of HPX on a single node by default.
  • We have added back single-page HTML documentation after the move to Sphinx. We also generate PDF documentation now.

For a complete list of new features and breaking changes please see our release notes. If you have any questions, comments, or exploits to report you can reach us on IRC (#stellar on Freenode), or email us at hpx-users@stellar.cct.lsu.edu. We value on your input!
