Changes (w.r.t. Intel TBB 4.4):
- Added support for Microsoft* Visual Studio* 2015.
- Intel TBB no longer performs dynamic replacement of memory allocation
functions for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and earlier versions.
- For GCC 4.7 and higher, the intrinsics-based platform isolation layer
uses __atomic_* built-ins instead of the legacy __sync_* ones.
This change is inspired by a contribution from Mathieu Malaterre.
- Improvements in task_arena:
Several application threads may join a task_arena and execute tasks
simultaneously. The amount of concurrency reserved for application
threads at task_arena construction can be set to any value between
0 and the arena concurrency limit.
- The fractal example was modified to demonstrate class task_arena
and moved to examples/task_arena/fractal.
- Fixed a deadlock during destruction of task_scheduler_init objects
when one of destructors is set to wait for worker threads.
- Added a workaround for a possible crash on OS X* when dynamic memory
allocator replacement (libtbbmalloc_proxy) is used and memory is
released during application startup.
- Usage of mutable functors with task_group::run_and_wait() and
task_arena::enqueue() is disabled. An attempt to pass a functor
which operator()() is not const will produce compilation errors.
- Makefiles and environment scripts now properly recognize GCC 5.0 and
Open-source contributions integrated:
- Improved performance of parallel_for_each for inputs allowing random
access, by Raf Schietekat.
