BOLT supports most of OpenMP 4.5 features and part of OpenMP 5.0 features. BOLT runs on UNIX-based platforms with various unmodified OpenMP compilers including GNU C/C++ Compilers, Clang/LLVM, and Intel C/C++ Compiler. Note that BOLT does not support features that are not supported by the OpenMP compilers; for example, some OpenMP 4.5 features are not available with old OpenMP compilers. OpenMP compilers that support offloading features are necessary to use GPUs with OpenMP. If you encounter any issues or have any questions, please let us know.
There are two mailing lists that are used for different support purposes.
- email@example.com (archive)
- This is an open discussion list for all BOLT users and developers. If you have any installation or usage issues, this is the place to ask for help. We also welcome questions about how to design and parallelize your programs with BOLT. In order to avoid spam, we request you to subscribe to this list before sending an email. You can also report bugs to the BOLT team by sending emails to this mailing list, but we might ask you to create a GitHub Issue to keep track of it.
- firstname.lastname@example.org (archive)
- This is an announcement list for BOLT releases. The traffic on this list is limited to about one email every BOLT release. If you wish to receive these announcements, please subscribe to this list. You cannot send any emails to this list; this is only for receiving announcements.
When you find a bug or need a new feature, feel free to create a GitHub issue here. When you report a bug, please be specific as much as possible so that the BOLT team can reproduce the bug. We appreciate any pull request to improve BOLT (see GitHub PRs).
