What's New? Intel® Threading Building Blocks 2017 Update 5

The updated version contains several bug fixes when compared to the previous  Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) 2017 Update 4 release. Information about new features of previous releases you can find under the following links.

Added functionality:

  • Added support for Microsoft* Visual Studio* 2017.
  • Added graph/matmult example to demonstrate support for compute offload to Intel(R) Graphics Technology in the flow graph API.
  • The "compiler" build option now allows to specify a full path to the compiler.

Changes affecting backward compatibility:

  • Constructors for many classes, including graph nodes, concurrent containers, thread-local containers, etc., are declared explicit and cannot be used for implicit conversions anymore.

Bugs fixed:

  • Added a workaround for bug 16657 in the GNU C Library (glibc) affecting the debug version of tbb::mutex.
  • Fixed a crash in pool_identify() called for an object allocated in another thread.
