HPX 1.6.0 Released!

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce the release of HPX 1.6.0! HPX is an implementation of the C++ standard library for parallelism and concurrency on an efficient user-level threading runtime, with extensions for distributed computing.

This release continues the focus on C++20 conformance with multiple new algorithms adapted to be C++20 conformant and becoming customization point objects (CPOs). We have added experimental support for HIP, allowing existing CUDA features to now be compiled with hipcc and run on AMD GPUs as well. We have also continued improving the performance of the parallel executors, and added an experimental fork-join executor. The full list of improvements, fixes, and breaking changes can be found in the release notes.

Thank you to everyone in the STE||AR Group and all the volunteers who have provided fixes, opened issues, and improved the documentation.
