The STE||AR Group proudly announces the first release candidate of HPX (V0.9.8)! This release is mainly based on contributions made by partners from the Louisiana State University Baton Rouge (LA, USA) and the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen (Germany). Please see here for the release notes.
