Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2020.3, Package name: threadingbuildingblocks-2020.3, Maintainer: asau

Intel(r) Threading Building Blocks (Intel TBB) offers a rich and
complete approach to expressing parallelism in a C++ program.
It is a library that helps you take advantage of multi-core
processor performance without having to be a threading expert.
Intel TBB is not just a threads-replacement library. It represents
a higher-level, task-based parallelism that abstracts platform
details and threading mechanisms for scalability and performance.

    or later is required.
- Added a new flow graph example with different implementations of the
    Cholesky Factorization algorithm.

Preview Features:

- Added template class opencl_node to the flow graph API. It allows a
    flow graph to offload computations to OpenCL* devices.

    parallel_reduce for well-balanced workloads.
- Improved template class async_node in the flow graph API to support
    user settable concurrency limits.

    This change is inspired by a contribution from Mathieu Malaterre.
- Improvements in task_arena:
    Several application threads may join a task_arena and execute tasks
    simultaneously. The amount of concurrency reserved for application
    threads at task_arena construction can be set to any value between
    0 and the arena concurrency limit.
- The fractal example was modified to demonstrate class task_arena
    and moved to examples/task_arena/fractal.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed a deadlock during destruction of task_scheduler_init objects
    when one of destructors is set to wait for worker threads.
- Added a workaround for a possible crash on OS X* when dynamic memory
    allocator replacement (libtbbmalloc_proxy) is used and memory is
    released during application startup.
- Usage of mutable functors with task_group::run_and_wait() and
    task_arena::enqueue() is disabled. An attempt to pass a functor
    which operator()() is not const will produce compilation errors.
- Makefiles and environment scripts now properly recognize GCC 5.0 and
    higher.

Open-source contributions integrated:

- Concurrent_priority_queue class now supports initialization/assignment
    via C++11 initializer list feature (std::initializer_list<T>).

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed more possible stalls in concurrent invocations of
    task_arena::execute(), especially waiting for enqueued tasks.
- Fixed requested number of workers for task_arena(P,0).
- Fixed interoperability with Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier XE in
    case of using task_arena::enqueue() from a terminating thread.

Open-source contributions integrated:

- Type fixes, cleanups, and code beautification by Raf Schietekat.
- Improvements in atomic operations for big endian platforms
    by Raf Schietekat.

Intel TBB 4.1 Update 3
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6103

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.1 Update 2):

- Binary files for Android* applications were added to the Linux* OS
    package.
- Binary files for Windows Store* applications were added to the
    Windows* OS package.
- Exact exception propagation (exception_ptr) support on Linux OS is
    now turned on by default for GCC 4.4 and higher.
- Stopped implicit use of large memory pages by tbbmalloc (Linux-only).
    Now use of large pages must be explicitly enabled with
    scalable_allocation_mode() function or TBB_MALLOC_USE_HUGE_PAGES
    environment variable.

Community Preview Features:

- Extended class task_arena constructor and method initialize() to
    allow some concurrency to be reserved strictly for application
    threads.
- New methods terminate() and is_active() were added to class
    task_arena.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed initialization of hashing helper constant in the hash
    containers.
- Fixed possible stalls in concurrent invocations of
    task_arena::execute() when no worker thread is available to make
    progress.
- Fixed incorrect calculation of hardware concurrency in the presence
    of inactive processor groups, particularly on systems running
    Windows* 8 and Windows* Server 2012.

Open-source contributions integrated:

- The fix for the GUI examples on OS X* systems by Raf Schietekat.
- Moved some power-of-2 calculations to functions to improve readability
    by Raf Schietekat.
- C++11/Clang support improvements by arcata.
- ARM* platform isolation layer by Steve Capper, Leif Lindholm, Leo Lara
    (ARM).

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.1 Update 2
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6102

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.1 Update 1):

- Objects up to 128 MB are now cached by the tbbmalloc. Previously
    the threshold was 8MB. Objects larger than 128 MB are still
    processed by direct OS calls.
- concurrent_unordered_multiset and concurrent_unordered_multimap
    have been added, based on Microsoft* PPL prototype.
- Ability to value-initialize a tbb::atomic<T> variable on construction
    in C++11, with const expressions properly supported.

Community Preview Features:

- Added a possibility to wait until all worker threads terminate.
    This is necessary before calling fork() from an application.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed data race in tbbmalloc that might lead to memory leaks
    for large object allocations.
- Fixed task_arena::enqueue() to use task_group_context of target arena.
- Improved implementation of 64 bit atomics on ia32.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.1 Update 1
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6101

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.1):

- concurrent_vector class now supports initialization/assignment
    via C++11 initializer list feature (std::initializer_list<T>)
- Added implementation of the platform isolation layer based on
    Intel compiler atomic built-ins; it is supposed to work on
    any platform supported by compiler version 12.1 and newer.
- Using GetNativeSystemInfo() instead of GetSystemInfo() to support
    more than 32 processors for 32-bit applications under WOW64.
- The following form of parallel_for:
    parallel_for(first, last, [step,] f[, context]) now accepts an
    optional partitioner parameter after the function f.

Backward-incompatible API changes:

- The library no longer injects tuple in to namespace std.
    In previous releases, tuple was injected into namespace std by
    flow_graph.h when std::tuple was not available.  In this release,
    flow_graph.h now uses tbb::flow::tuple.  On platforms where
    std::tuple is available, tbb::flow::tuple is typedef'ed to
    std::tuple.  On all other platforms, tbb::flow::tuple provides
    a subset of the functionality defined by std::tuple. Users of
    flow_graph.h may need to change their uses of std::tuple to
    tbb::flow::tuple to ensure compatibility with non-C++11 compliant
    compilers.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed local observer to be able to override propagated CPU state and
    to provide correct value of task_arena::current_slot() in callbacks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.1
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6100

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.0 Update 5):

- _WIN32_WINNT must be set to 0x0501 or greater in order to use TBB
    on Microsoft* Windows*.
- parallel_deterministic_reduce template function is fully supported.
- TBB headers can be used with C++0x/C++11 mode (-std=c++0x) of GCC
    and Intel(R) Compiler.
- C++11 std::make_exception_ptr is used where available, instead of
    std::copy_exception from earlier C++0x implementations.
- Improvements in the TBB allocator to reduce extra memory consumption.
- Partial refactoring of the task scheduler data structures.
- TBB examples allow more flexible specification of the thread number,
    including arithmetic and geometric progression.

Bugs fixed:

- On Linux & OS X*, pre-built TBB binaries do not yet support exact
    exception propagation via C++11 exception_ptr. To prevent run time
    errors, by default TBB headers disable exact exception propagation
    even if the C++ implementation provides exception_ptr.

Community Preview Features:

- Added: class task_arena, for work submission by multiple application
    threads with thread-independent control of concurrency level.
- Added: task_scheduler_observer can be created as local to a master
    thread, to observe threads that work on behalf of that master.
    Local observers may have new on_scheduler_leaving() callback.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.0 Update 5
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6005

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.0 Update 4):

- Parallel pipeline optimization (directly storing small objects in the
    interstage data buffers) limited to trivially-copyable types for
    C++11 and a short list of types for earlier compilers.
- _VARIADIC_MAX switch is honored for TBB tuple implementation
    and flow::graph nodes based on tuple.
- Support of Cocoa framework was added to the GUI examples on OS X*
    systems.

Bugs fixed:

- Fixed a tv_nsec overflow bug in condition_variable::wait_for.
- Fixed execution order of enqueued tasks with different priorities.
- Fixed a bug with task priority changes causing lack of progress
    for fire-and-forget tasks when TBB was initialized to use 1 thread.
- Fixed duplicate symbol problem when linking multiple compilation
    units that include flow_graph.h on VC 10.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.0 Update 4
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6004

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.0 Update 3):

- The TBB memory allocator transparently supports large pages on Linux.
- A new flow_graph example, logic_sim, was added.
- Support for DirectX* 9 was added to GUI examples.

Community Preview Features:

- Added: aggregator, a new concurrency control mechanism.

Bugs fixed:

- The abort operation on concurrent_bounded_queue now leaves the queue
    in a reusable state. If a bad_alloc or bad_last_alloc exception is
    thrown while the queue is recovering from an abort, that exception
    will be reported instead of user_abort on the thread on which it
    occurred, and the queue will not be reusable.
- Steal limiting heuristic fixed to avoid premature stealing disabling
    when large amount of __thread data is allocated on thread stack.
- Fixed a low-probability leak of arenas in the task scheduler.
- In STL-compatible allocator classes, the method construct() was fixed
    to comply with C++11 requirements.
- Fixed a bug that prevented creation of fixed-size memory pools
    smaller than 2M.
- Significantly reduced the amount of warnings from various compilers.

Open-source contributions integrated:

- Multiple improvements by Raf Schietekat.
- Basic support for Clang on OS X* by Blas Rodriguez Somoza.
- Fixes for warnings and corner-case bugs by Blas Rodriguez Somoza
    and Edward Lam.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.0 Update 3
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6003

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.0 Update 2):

- Modifications to the low-level API for memory pools:
    added support for aligned allocations;
    pool policies reworked to allow backward-compatible extensions;
    added a policy to not return memory space till destruction;
    pool_reset() does not return memory space anymore.
- Class tbb::flow::graph_iterator added to iterate over all nodes
    registered with a graph instance.
- multioutput_function_node has been renamed multifunction_node.
    multifunction_node and split_node are now fully-supported features.
- For the tagged join node, the policy for try_put of an item with
    already existing tag has been defined: the item will be rejected.
- Matching the behavior on Windows, on other platforms the optional
    shared libraries (libtbbmalloc, libirml) now are also searched
    only in the directory where libtbb is located.
- The platform isolation layer based on GCC built-ins is extended.

Backward-incompatible API changes:

- a graph reference parameter is now required to be passed to the
    constructors of the following flow graph nodes: overwrite_node,
    write_once_node, broadcast_node, and the CPF or_node.
- the following tbb::flow node methods and typedefs have been renamed:
       Old                             New
    join_node and or_node:
       inputs()                 ->     input_ports()
       input_ports_tuple_type   ->     input_ports_type
    multifunction_node and split_node:
       ports_type               ->     output_ports_type

Bugs fixed:

- Not all logical processors were utilized on systems with more than
    64 cores split by Windows into several processor groups.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intel TBB 4.0 Update 2 commercial-aligned release
TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6002

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.0 Update 1 commercial-aligned release):

- concurrent_bounded_queue now has an abort() operation that releases
    threads involved in pending push or pop operations. The released
    threads will receive a tbb::user_abort exception.
- Added Community Preview Feature:  concurrent_lru_cache container,
    a concurrent implementation of LRU (least-recently-used) cache.

Bugs fixed:

- fixed a race condition in the TBB scalable allocator.
- concurrent_queue counter wraparound bug was fixed, which occurred when
    the number of push and pop operations exceeded ~>4 billion on IA32.
- fixed races in the TBB scheduler that could put workers asleep too
    early, especially in presence of affinitized tasks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

TBB_INTERFACE_VERSION == 6000

Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 3.0 Update 8 commercial-aligned release):

- concurrent_priority_queue is now a fully supported feature.
    Capacity control methods were removed.
- Flow graph is now a fully supported feature.
- A new memory backend has been implemented in the TBB allocator.
    It can reuse freed memory for both small and large objects, and
    returns unused memory blocks to the OS more actively.
- Improved partitioning algorithms for parallel_for and parallel_reduce
    to better handle load imbalance.
- The convex_hull example has been refactored for reproducible
    performance results.
- The major interface version has changed from 5 to 6.
    Deprecated interfaces might be removed in future releases.

Community Preview Features:

- Added: serial subset, i.e. sequential implementations of TBB generic
    algorithms (currently, only provided for parallel_for).
- Preview of new flow graph nodes:
    or_node (accepts multiple inputs, forwards each input separately
      to all successors),
    split_node (accepts tuples, and forwards each element of a tuple
      to a corresponding successor), and
    multioutput_function_node (accepts one input, and passes the input
    and a tuple of output ports to the function body to support outputs
    to multiple successors).
- Added: memory pools for more control on memory source, grouping,
    and collective deallocation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
