HPX V1.7.1 (Aug 12, 2021)¶
This is a bugfix release with a few minor fixes.
Added a CMake option to assume that all types are bitwise serializable by default:
HPX_SERIALIZATION_WITH_ALL_TYPES_ARE_BITWISE_SERIALIZABLE. The default value
OFFcorresponds to the old behaviour.
Added a version check for Asio. The minimum Asio version supported by HPX is 1.12.0.
Fixed a bug affecting usage of actions, where the internals of HPX relied on function addresses being unique. This was fixed by relying on variable addresses being unique instead.
hpx::util::bindmore strict in checking the validity of placeholders.
Small performance improvement to spinlocks.
Adapted the following parallel algorithms to C++20:
hpx::execution::simdparexecution policy (introduced in 1.7.0) was renamed to
hpx::execution::par_simdfor consistency with the other parallel policies.
