These are not stable releases of software packages!

Users looking for stable releases should consult the main LAM/MPI download page.


The software packages listed on this page are essentially "pseudo-stable" beta releases; they have not undergone the rigorous testing to be certified as a final, stable release. Early adopters are highly encouraged to try these releases and let the LAM Team know of any problems that you find (see the contact page).


LAM/MPI Releases:

These are betas of the upcoming LAM/MPI v7.1.x. They appear to be "stable enough" for beta release, but are not final releases. Specifically, take this to mean: changes will definitely occur before the final release. For a full list of changes, see the SVN "what's new" page and/or the HISTORY file in the beta tarballs.

XMPI Release notes:

  • For XMPI to build, you must:
    • have a working C++ compiler installed
    • configure LAM/MPI with the "--with-trillium" switch to ./configure
    • have LessTif or Motif installed
      Note: XMPI is only supported with LessTif 0.92.26. It may work with older versions, but has not been tested with anything older than 0.92.26.
  • We need help finding bugs! Please, report any bugs you find in XMPI. We especially need help finding any places LessTif outputs any messages. Below is a list of outstanding LessTif warning fixes. If you find any others, please e-mail the so that we can squash the bugs. Include as much information as you can.
    • When closing the Build-and-Run window, LessTif will emit a warning.
  • For information on using the new functionality in XMPI, please see the "Using XMPI with LAM" page.
