Summary     : Python bindings of the Message Passing Interface (MPI)
Description :
This package is constructed on top of the MPI-1/MPI-2 specification and
provides an object oriented interface which closely follows MPI-2 C++
bindings. It supports point-to-point (sends, receives) and collective
(broadcasts, scatters, gathers) communications of any picklable Python
object as well as optimized communications of Python object exposing the
single-segment buffer interface (NumPy arrays, built-in bytes/string/array

Update Information:


* Add ``mpi4py.get_config()`` to retrieve information (compiler
  wrappers, includes, libraries, etc) about the MPI implementation
  employed to build mpi4py.

* Workaround Python libraries with missing GILState-related API calls
  in case of non-threaded Python builds.

* Windows: look for MPICH2, DeinoMPI, Microsoft HPC Pack at their
  default install locations under %ProgramFiles.

* MPE: fix hacks related to old API's, these hacks are broken when MPE
  is built with a MPI implementations other than MPICH2.

* HP-MPI: fix for missing Fortran datatypes, use dlopen() to load the
  MPI shared library before MPI_Init()

* Many distutils-related fixes, cleanup, and enhancements, better
  logics to find MPI compiler wrappers.

* Support for ``pip install mpi4py``.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mpi4py' at the command line.
