Change Logs

* Wed Jan 27 2021 Egbert Eich <>
- Sync SLE and openSUSE builds (jsc#SLE-12162).
* Thu Jan 21 2021 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- Update to version 6.1.0. The change in release number reflects a change
  in behavior of the software, regarding two features:
  * Algorithms for sparse matrix reordering now fully take into account vertex
    weights. While the previous versions only accounted for them in the nested
    dissection method to compute and  optimize separator size/weight, they are
    now also accounted for in the minimum  degree and minimum fill algorithms.
    Consequently,  vertex  amalgamation  can  be  tuned so  that  the  size of
    (column-)blocks is tailored according to the real amount of computation to
    be performed on supervariables.
    The esmumps  interface  with MUMPS  has been  updated  so as to  take into
    account this new feature.
  * The routines of the vertex  graph partitioning (with overlap)  module have
  been redesigned, leading to much smaller  run time and, most often, higher
- Scotch development is moving to gitlab
- Add support for gcc10 and build support for openmpi4.
* Fri Apr 17 2020 Egbert Eich <>
- only serial scotch-metis-devel package should conflict with
  metis-devel (boo#1169791).
* Thu Jan 30 2020 Stefan Brüns <>
- Remove bogus %undefine suffix - suffix is a RPM builtin, and
  trying to undefine it is an error since RPM 4.15.
* Tue Dec 03 2019 Egbert Eich <>
- Enabled non-HPC openmpi3 build.
* Fri Nov 29 2019 Egbert Eich <>

* Thu Nov 28 2019 Egbert Eich <>
- Update to version 6.0.9:
  * Scotch 6.0.7 is mostly a bugfix version. It provides some new minor
    features, such as an extension of the target architecture API and
    MeTiS v5 compatibility.
- Disable openmpi1 builds for SLE/Leap > 15.1.
- Enable openmpi3 builds for Leap and SLE > 15.1 (jsc#SLE-7773).
* Wed Nov 27 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
- Reflect renaming of openmpi packages to openmpi1 in Tumbleweed,
  fixes unresolvable packages.
* Tue Sep 10 2019 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- Use -ffat-lto-objects to provide a proper static library.
* Wed Aug 28 2019 Ana Guerrero Lopez <>
- Update to version 6.0.7: (jsc#SLE-8499)
  * bugfixes and some new minor features, such as an extension of
    the target architecture API and MeTiS v5 compatibility.
