* WARNING: please note that the Darshan module file for Cray environments has
  been updated, especially in the DARSHAN_POST_LINK_OPTS variable.  Please
  update your module file accordingly when upgrading from 2.2.7 or earlier 
  on Cray platforms.

* Improved ability to analyze the activity to particular files opened by an
  application
  - darshan-summary-per-file.sh script to generate a separate pdf summary for
    each file opened by an application, developed by Rob Latham.
  - Added --file-list and --file-list-detailed options to darshan-parser to 
    lists files present within a log file along with summary statistics.
  - Added --file option to darshan-convert to filter out activity for a
    specific file from a Darshan log
19

21
* Add wrappers for POSIX AIO operations (fixes tracking of underlying POSIX
  operations resulting from nonblocking MPI-IO operations.  Bug reported by
  David Shrader.)

27
* Fix compile-time errors when Darshan is configured for use with MPICH 3.x 
  installations with const correct MPI function prototypes. Also affects 
  MPICH 1.5+ installations with optional const support.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
* Fix segmentation fault when using LD_PRELOAD instrumentation on programs
  that use MPI_Init_thread() rather than MPI_Init().  Reported by Myriam
  Botalla.

  point mapping) if stat() was called before open() on a file
* Store version number of the darshan runtime library in the log file 
  metadata (see lib_ver in darshan-parser output)

41
  - make sure to honor user-specified hints passed in at runtime
42
43
    via the DARSHAN_LOGHINTS env variable.

* Performance enhancements:
  - collect mount point information at rank 0 and broadcast to all 
    processes to avoid excess file system traffic on startup
  - change default MPI-IO hints for writing log file to
    romio_no_indep_rw=true and cb_nodes=4 to improve log creation performance
* Install libdarshan-util and headers during installation process for
  darshan-util; patch contributed by Matthieu Dorier
* Detect PMPI support at link time when using compiler scripts produced
  by the darshan-gen-* utilities.  This avoids link problems when Darshan
  compiler wrappers are used with the ADIOS dummy MPI library; reported
  by Jingqing Mu
* Support MPICH_{CC/CXX/F77} environment variables in compiler scripts
  produced by the darshan-gen-* utilities

  environment variable

61
* Rename cp-shutdown-bench test utility to darshan-shutdown-bench and enable
  benchmarking hooks in library by default so that darshan-shutdown-bench 
62
  can be used with any Darshan installation
63
* Remove deprecated --enable-st-dev-workaround configure option
64
* Misc. documentation updates

darshan-2.2.5
67
68
69
70
=============
* Fix bug in mount point identification when --enable-stat-at-open option is
  not used.  In Darshan 2.2.4, some file entries were recorded as using the "/"
  file system regardless of their location.
71
72
* Update patches and documentation for Cray xt-asyncpe environment 5.12 or 
  higher; contributed by Yushu Yao.
73
74
* Update documentation to no longer recommend --enable-stat-at-open option on 
  any systems
75
76
* Fix unresolved symbols error when linking non-MPI programs with Cray
  compiler.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
77
78

81
82
83
84
* Use fstat() in place of stat() for detecting file information when
  --enable-stat-at-open option is used
* Use statfs() at startup to detect default block size for supported file
  systems
* Added --enable-group-readable-logs configure option, which will cause
  Darshan to to generate log files with the group read permission bit set.
  This option is useful in conjunction with deployments that set the setgid
  bit on log directories.

91
92
  - prevents Darshan from reporting SIZE_AT_OPEN, FILE_ALIGNENT, and 
    DARSHAN_FILE_NOT_ALIGNED values
  - features can still be enabled via --enable-stat-at-open option
93
94
* Fix missing -lz in post ld flags reported by Yushu Yao.  Fixes a link-time
  error for some corner-case applications.
95
96
* Fix bug in Cray compiler script patches that was setting compiler flags 
  incorrectly.  Reported by Yushu Yao.
97
98
  WARNING: if you are using a previous Darshan release (2.2.3 through
  2.2.4-pre4) on a Cray platform, please re-patch your compiler scripts.
99
100
101
102
* Update darshan-gen-* scripts to support the potential for additonal LDFLAGS
  or CFLAGS that appear before the object or source file in the compile or
  link commands.  This fixes compatibility with some mvapich2 installations,
  reported by Dragos Constantin.

  - darshan-utils: for processing darshan log files

  the darshan-gen-*.pl scripts
* bug fixes:
  - potential MAX_BYTE overflow on 32 bit systems

  NOTE: Darshan 1.x output files are incompatible with the tools in this 
  release unless they were generated on a ppc32 architecture (Blue Gene)
* 8 new counters that record the rank of the fastest and slowest process that
  opened each shared file, along with the number of seconds and number of
  bytes consumed by those processes.  It also reports the variance in both
  time and amount of data.
* new --with-jobid-env configure argument to support recording job identifiers
  from different schedulers
* job ID is now recorded within the Darshan log in addition to in the file
  name
* darshan-job-summary.pl:
  * opens output files directly without using intermediate darshan-parser output
  * table showing data usage per file system
