What's New?

ZPL is a product and a research project, so changes are constantly being made to the web pages and the compiler, though not necessarily at the same time. We'll try to keep you up-to-date by highlighting major changes on this page.

22 April 2004

ZPL Version 2.0.0 is released under an OSI-approved open-source licence. Substantial changes have been made since the last binary release. See this page for details on language changes. Additionally, stability has improved and a number of major internal improvements have been implemented:

A page showing performance results on a 1024-node cluster, a 176-processor IBM SP, and a 256-processor Cray T3E is added. These performance results were previously published in a paper that appeared in PPoPP '03: Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming.

A much-anticipated major overhaul to the ZPL web site is made.
