At long last, Craig Rasmussen (from Los Alamos National Laboratory) and I are ready to publish our prototype implementation of the MPI-3 Fortran bindings. The new MPI-3 Fortran bindings are coming up for their second vote at the upcoming MPI Forum meeting in Chicago; this public release satisfies the “must implement all new proposed behavior” requirement for proposals to get in MPI-3.
The good stuff:
- The implementation is a branch off the Open MPI development trunk (i.e., it’s a bit farther ahead than the current Open MPI releases)
- Download the software here (under the same open source license as Open MPI)
- The Mercurial Bitbucket repository where we develop the code is also publicly available
Please download and give this implementation a whirl! We’d love to hear your feedback.
So let’s dive a little deeper into the details…
