We have released HPX 1.7.1 to fix minor problems found after the 1.7.0. This patch release fixes a bug in the internals of actions, adds a version check to the new Asio dependency, and slightly improves the performance of spinlocks among other minor changes. Importantly, the experimental
hpx::execution::simdpar execution policy introduced in 1.7.0 was renamed to
hpx::execution::par_simd for consistency with the other parallel execution policies. Although this is a breaking change in a patch release, we felt it was important to make this change as soon as possible.
You can download the release from our releases page or check out the
1.7.1 tag using git. A full list of changes can be found in the release notes.
If you have any questions, comments, or exploits to report you can reach us on IRC or Matrix (#ste||ar on libera.chat) or email us at hpx-users. We depend on your input!
