HPX V0.9.8 Available!

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce a new formal release of HPX (V0.9.8) — a C++ runtime system for parallel and distributed applications of any scale. While this release is mainly based on contributions made by partners of the STE||AR Group from the Louisiana State University Baton Rouge (LA, USA) and the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen (Germany), it would not have been possible without the help of many people from all over the world. Thanks to everybody involved!

Please see here for the release notes.

HPXPI V0.1.0 Available!

The first formal version of HPXPI (V0.1.0) is now available for download! Over the past few months the STE||AR Fellows at Louisiana State University, have been hard at work finalizing the first fully functional, open source implementation of the XPI specification. This release goes along with the next major release of the HPX runtime system (V0.9.8) which is used as the underlying implementation and which gives it a solid foundation ensuring high performance and wide portability. It is released as open source software under the Boost software license.

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.

On Display…

HPX is making its Museum Debut!  A variation of the HPX + LibGeoDecomp demo, vanDouken  (Highly Parallel Interactive Image Flow), is being installed in an interactive museum exhibit designed to inspire 5th through 8th graders to become interested in the natural sciences and engineering.  This demo (which we originally wrote about here) allows users to insert “forces” on a particle in cell code by swiping a finger across a tablet which interfaces with the simulation.  This particular demonstration has been enhanced so that visitors will be able to not only interact with the image but will be able to change the settings of the force fields using a graphical programing environment.  The setup is being displayed at the Nuremberg Museum for Industrial Culture.  A video of the demonstration with the GUI can be seen here.  For more videos and information visit the vanDouken site at http://vandouken.github.io/

Migration

Since our 0.9.6 release the STE||AR Group has been busy moving to a new facility!  Our new offices will provide us plenty of space to grow and develop our group.  In addition to gaining two new offices we also will have access to more rack space, more meeting areas, and a large collaborative space right outside of our offices.  As we unpack our boxes we cannot wait to start this new chapter of the STE||AR Group!

HPX V0.9.6 Released

The STE||AR Group is proud to announce the sixth formal release of HPX (V0.9.6).  We would like to thank everyone for their time and dedication which continues to push HPX to the edge of parallel computation.

HPX (High Performance ParalleX) provides a unified programming model for parallel and distributed applications of any scale. It is the first freely available, open source, feature-complete, modular, and performance oriented implementation of the ParalleX execution model. HPX is a general purpose C++ runtime system for applications targeted at conventional, widely available architectures.

C++Now

This year the STE||AR Group attended the annual C++Now conference in Aspen, Colorado.  Three members of the group gave talks at the conference, which is dedicated to the discussion, development and spread of C++ and Boost Libraries.  Hartmut Kaiser and Vinay Amatya presented “HPX: A C++ Standards Compliant Runtime System for Asynchronous Parallel and Distributed Computing”, while “Boost.Asio and Boost.Serialization: Design Patterns for Object Transmission” was presented by Bryce Adelstein-Lelbach.  In addition, we were able to send two students, Michael LeSane and Alexander Duchene, through the C++Now’s Student Volunteer Program.  This program waived the conference fee for select students that volunteered to help run the conference.  In addition, the LSU Center for Computation & Technology agreed to cover the room and board of these students.  “Volunteering at the 2013 C++ Now convention was a fantastic experience,” reported Alexander Duchene, “although the talks can be seen online, nothing can compare to being surrounded by over a hundred C++ enthusiasts.”

New Mailing Lists

All of our HPX mailing lists will be migrated to new mailing addresses. These mailing lists are the heart of the HPX community. You may read the lists via full-content email, email digests, or via newsgroup reader.

The hosting for the mailing lists is donated by the Center of Computation and Technology at Louisiana State University.

We created three new mailing lists:
