Please, read the Installation notes.
For the list of contributors, see the above-mentioned release notes.
IMPORTANT NOTICE :
In v7.7 , some cleaning has started, breaking specific backward compatibilities. In particular,
the input variable mkmem (and associated mkqmem, mk1mem, mffmem) will be removed.
Explicitly, no calculation using out-of-core storing of wavefunctions will be possible.
Instead, the user should rely on the parallelisation, with distributed memory.
This was decided at the developer's workshop in Dinard, May 2013.
Indeed, the maintenance of mkmem was becoming a barrier to more interesting features, related to parallelisation.
By the same token, some developers are considering further cleaning of ABINIT
also to favour new developments over outdated or badly implemented features.
The header of the WFK files will also be changed, breaking further backward compatibility.
The ABINIT Wiki will be activated and the whole documentation will be progressively
transferred there. Once this is completed, the wiki will become the reference for documentation.
Also, the availability of NetCDF will become mandatory.
Have fun !
Tested with : OpenMPI, MPICH2, MPICH3, ATLAS, OpenBLAS, CUDA, Magma, gfortran, ifort, xlf, NAG,g95
