Metascale’s NT² Released with HPX Support

 From the release announcement:metascale

The first stable release of the 3.x series of MetaScale’s open-source software is available: NT² 3.0. Many Issues have been closed since last beta. The main focus of this release cycle was to fix performances issues and to stabilize some parts of the API.

This release adds support for HPX, STE||AR’s flagship library. This is excellent news for us, as it demonstrates growing interest in the community to rely on a solid runtime system for all parallelization needs.

HPX V0.9.7 Released!

The newest version of HPX (V0.9.7) is now available for download! Over the past few months the STE||AR Group at Louisiana State University, has been hard at work making HPX more portable than ever before! With the port of HPX to the BlueGene/Q machine, we now can run on almost all of the world’s top 500 machines. We have improved our support for the Intel Xeon Phi ® which will allow HPX users to more fully exploit this exciting accelerator. HPX V0.9.7 will give users the ability to write straight forward code which will automatically utilize the hardware available in their machines and simultaneously be able to run on different architectures around the world.

HPX Development Moved to Github

As already suggested in our release notes for the HPX V0.9 release last week we now have moved our main source code repository to Github. This is a very important milestone for us. It marks the point in the development of HPX where we believe it reached a sufficient level of maturity to be useful for real world applications. Making HPX available on Github demonstrates our commitment to create an openly available parallel and distributed C++ runtime system for today’s and tomorrow’s computer architectures. We distribute HPX under the Boost Software License, which means it can be used in any way and without any limitations – no strings attached.
