Revision as of 12:20, 10 June 2014 by (Talk | contribs) (Bug Fixes and Internal Enhancements)

The following are new features that are planned to be available in PTP 8.0 and Photran 8.2, released with Eclipse Luna (4.4)  on June 27, 2014.
This page can be considered to be under construction until that time.

Parallel Package changes

The Eclipse package all-in-one download "Eclipse for Parallel Application Developers" is updated with the latest Luna release contents of most interest to our users. You can download it at


Core Features

Target system configurations

Environment Management

System monitoring

  • Server Caching mechanism - the server scripts in the remote .eclipsesettings directories can be installed as a daemon (e.g. via crontab). Users can decide whether to use the status data retrieved from that daemon or via the old workflow, where each client triggers the server scripts separately. See for implementation status.

You can configure the update method with the context menu attached to the refresh button. Sysmon-CacheMechanism.png

  • Configuration for system monitoring - a configuration page for the system monitoring allows to define the default update behaviour and the update interval of the monitoring connections.
