The MPICH team is pleased to announce the availability of a new preview release (mpich-3.2a1).  This preview release is the first in a new major version series in mpich (3.2.x), and adds several capabilities including full Fortran 2008 support (enabled by default), support for the Mellanox MXM interface for InfiniBand, and support for OFED InfiniBand for Xeon and Xeon Phi architectures.  These features represent a subset of those planned for the 3.2.x release series (complete list: https://trac.mpich.org/projects/mpich/roadmap).


Please note that this is a preview release primarily aimed at receiving feedback from users on the new features.  This release is not meant for production systems at this time.

A list of changes in this release is included at the end of this email.
