A gentle introduction to jump threading optimizations

by Aldy Hernandez

From the article:

As part of the GCC developers‘ on-demand range work for GCC 10, I’ve been playing with improving the backward jump threader so it can thread paths that are range-dependent. This, in turn, had me looking at the jump threader, which is a part of the compiler I’ve been carefully avoiding for years. If, like me, you’re curious about compiler optimizations, but are jump-threading-agnostic, perhaps you’ll be interested in this short introduction...

HPX V1.2.1 released—STE||AR Group

The STE||AR Group has released V1.2.1 of HPX -- A C++ Standard library for parallelism and concurrency.

HPX V1.2.1 Released

The newest version of HPX (V1.2.1) is now available for download! Please see here for the release notes. This release is a pure bug fix release that addresses a couple of compatibility problems (in particular with Boost V1.69). We have also included some important improvements that were merged since the previous release.

    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++ Standard. As of this writing, HPX provides the only widely available open-source implementation of the new C++17 parallel algorithms. Additionally, HPX implements functionalities proposed as part of the ongoing C++ standardization process, such as large parts of 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 parellism and concurrency.
