Fedora Update Notification

Name        : tbb
Product     : Fedora 24
Version     : 4.4
Release     : 5.20160316.fc24
URL         : http://threadingbuildingblocks.org/
Summary     : The Threading Building Blocks library abstracts low-level threading details
Description :
Threading Building Blocks (TBB) is a C++ runtime library that
abstracts the low-level threading details necessary for optimal
multi-core performance.  It uses common C++ templates and coding style
to eliminate tedious threading implementation work.

TBB requires fewer lines of code to achieve parallelism than other
threading models.  The applications you write are portable across
platforms.  Since the library is also inherently scalable, no code
maintenance is required as more processor cores become available.

Update Information:

The tbb update simply adds -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks to the build flags.
The previous build showed some odd behavior when used by mathicgb, but behaves
as expected when built with this flag.  The memtailor, mathic, and mathicgb
updates move to the latest upstream git snapshots in preparation for using these
packages for the latest Singular and Macaulay2 releases.

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

available at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
GPG keys used by the Fedora Project can be found at
