HPX V1.8.1 released -- STE||AR Group

The STE||AR Group has released V1.8.1 of HPX -- A C++ Standard library for Concurrency and Parallelism.

HPX V1.8.1 Released

We have released HPX 1.8.1 that adds a number of small new features and fixes a handful of problems discovered since the last 1.8.0 release, in particular: a lot of work has been done to improve vectorization support for our parallel algorithms. HPX now supports using EVE – the Expressive Vector Engine as a vectorization backend. More work was done towards full compatibility with the sender/receiver proposal P2300. We have fixed all collective operations to properly avoid overlapping consecutive operations on the same communicator. We also fixed a dangling reference problem while serializing non-default constructible types. We have added support for static linking on Windows (using MSVC) and have added support for M1/MacOS based architectures. 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!

You can download the release from our releases page or check out the 1.8.1 tag using git. A full list of changes can be found in the release notes.

HPX is a general-purpose parallel C++ runtime system for applications of any scale. It implements all of the related facilities as defined by the C++20 Standard. As of this writing, HPX provides the only widely available open-source implementation of the new C++17 and C++20 parallel algorithms, including a full set of parallel range-based algorithms. Additionally, HPX implements functionalities proposed as part of the ongoing C++ standardization process, such as large parts of the features related parallelism and concurrency as specified by the upcoming C++23 Standard, the C++ Concurrency TS, Parallelism TS V2, data-parallel algorithms, executors, and many more. It also extends the existing C++ Standard APIs to the distributed case (e.g., compute clusters) and for heterogeneous systems (e.g., GPUs).

HPX seamlessly enables a new Asynchronous C++ Standard Programming Model that tends to improve the parallel efficiency of our applications and helps reducing complexities usually associated with parallelism and concurrency.

PVS-Studio challenge: can you spot an error in C++ code?

PVS-Studio team made an entertaining quiz for you. Try to quickly find a bug in a code fragment. If you spot an error - click on it.

Challenge: can you spot an error in C++ code?

by Andrey Karpov

From the article:

You'll see ten code fragments. If you manage to find an error in under 1 minute, you score one point. The 1-minute limit is made on purpose. Otherwise you'll definitely find all errors — code fragments are short. Anyway, treat this quiz as a game, and not as a real test of your programming skills smile

PVS-Studio 7.19: C++ analyzer now works better with QNX compilers and Unreal Engine 5

Recently, we have released a new PVS-Studio version — 7.19. In this note, we'll tell you about new features in the analyzer, the enhanced documentation, as well as what to read and... what to play.

PVS-Studio 7.19: what's new?

by Sergey Vasiliev

From the article:

Now, you can use PVS-Studio to analyze projects on Unreal Engine 5. For the most part, projects on UE 5 are analyzed in the same way as projects on UE 4. The difference is described in the documentation.
