What's New:

Intel MLSL 2018 Update 2:

  • Added support for collective operations execution using communication threads (in addition to the previous approach with processes).
    This functionality is built on top of asynchronous progress threads from Intel(R) MPI Library 2019 and simplifies job launching and memory management (no need for explicit MLSL::Alloc/Free calls for communication buffers).
  • Bug fixes.
