HPX 1.4.0 Released!

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce the release of HPX 1.4.0. This is a big release! We’ve added numerous new features, continued work on modularizing and making HPX lighter, and all-round improved usability, stability, and performance. Thank you once again to everyone in the STE||AR Group and all the volunteers who have provided fixes, opened issues, and improved documentation.

New Year, New Journeys

STE||AR Team:

Over the past six years I have had the pleasure of working with all of you wrangling teams, editing papers, writing grants, and just helping out wherever I can. However, as of December 31st, I will no longer be performing the role of program coordinator at LSU, and starting in January, I will be leaving the LSU community to take a position at AMD in Austin, Texas. This move is bittersweet for me. While the prospect of moving to a new city and facing new challenges is exciting, I am leaving a group of people I have grown very close to over the past half-decade.

I feel so privileged to have been able to work with and learn from the talented, knowledgeable, and skillful people who make up the STE||AR team. I really believe that Hartmut has created something special, a community of people who truly care about each other brought together by a vision of how C++ and HPC could be. I am confident that the future is bright for HPX and for all of us lucky people who have had the good fortune to engage with it.

Until we see each other again, happy hacking!

GSoD Final Report

By Rebecca Stobaugh.

We’ve reached the end of Google’s Season of Docs, and we’ve accomplished a lot in the past three months. My initial proposal was to work on three sections of the manual, and we have far exceeded our goal, managing to make changes to twelve different sections of the documentation. The majority of the work I’ve done has consisted of cleaning up grammatical errors and improving sentence structure. I have also added a style guide to the wiki, which should help standardize future changes to the documentation. The style guide can be found in the “HPX Source Code Structure and Coding Standards” wiki document under the section “Documentation Style Guide”. For a complete list of my pull requests during Season of Docs, please see here. To view my changes to the wiki, please see here.
