The MPICH team is pleased to announce the availability of a new preview release (mpich-3.2a2). This preview release adds several capabilities including support for the proposed MPI-3.1 standard (contains nonblocking collective I/O), full Fortran 2008 support (enabled by default), support for the Mellanox MXM interface for InfiniBand, support for the Mellanox HCOLL interface for collective communication, support for OFED InfiniBand for Xeon and Xeon Phi architectures, and significant improvements to the MPICH/portals4 implementation. These features represent a subset of those planned for the 3.2.x release series.
