OpenHPC Technical Steering Committee Announces Release of v1.3.6.

The OpenHPC Technical Steering Committee is pleased to announce the release of OpenHPC, v1.3.6.

This is an update release for the OHPC 1.3.x branch targeting support for CentOS 7.5 and SLES12SP3. This update release provides a number of component updates along with a number of additions (dimemas, extrae, geopm, msr-safe, opencoarrays, and paraver). This release also introduces a new compiler variant (gnu8) with matching runtimes and libraries.

Note that users who previously enabled the OHPC 1.3 repository via the ohpc-release package will have access to the updates available in 1.3.6 and no additional repository enablement should be necessary. Please see the Release Notes for more detailed information along with important highlights for those interested in upgrading their local installations.

For those interested and in attendance at SC’18 in Dallas next week, please note that OpenHPC will have a booth again this year and we are having a Birds of a Feather session on Wednesday, November 14th from 12:15pm-1:15pm in Room C140/142. Also on Wednesday, November 14, there is an OpenHPC Community Appreciate Event from 5-7pm.

Finally, for those who are using elements of OpenHPC (hopefully finding it marginally helpful), we’d certainly be grateful if you would consider registering your system(s) using the System Registration Form.
