The PAPI 4.2.0 release is now available for download.
This release now builds for linux platforms using the libpfm4 interface by default. New platform support is provided for AMD Bobcat, Intel SandyBridge, and ARM Cortex A8 and A9. Preliminary support is also provided for MIPS 74K.
We have reviewed and updated all doxygen generated man pages for documentation. Doxygen documentation can be found here.
Several components, particularly the CUDA component, have been updated, and a test environment for component tests has been implemented.
Two new utilities have been added: papi_error_codes and papi_component_avail.
A host of bug fixes and code clean-ups have been implemented.
