What's new in the LUMI software stack

Release 20240524

Release 20240517

Release 20240412

  • singularity-bindings EasyConfig to be used while 23.09 is the system default version of the HPE Cray Programming Environment, and improved documentation for this module.
  • lumi-training-tools EasyConfig to install software used in the course notes and exercises of the Amsterdam course given by LUST in May 2024.

Release 20240329

Release 20240322

Release 20240308

  • rocm/5.4.6 module in CrayEnv and LUMI/23.09 partition/G as we notice too much problems with rocm/5.6.1 on the current driver version. ROCm 5.4.x is the last supported ROCm version on the driver that we have, but that does not mean that 5.4.x will always work correctly with the HPE Cray PE as that one is mostly tested with ROCm 5.2 on the current OS version of LUMI and ROCm 5.5 on SUSE 15 SP5.
  • EasyBuild module for LUMI/23.09 now also loads EasyBuild-tools with extra tools that might be needed for some EasyConfigs.
  • JAX: Containers made available through EasyBuild-generated modules
  • Improved documentation for the PyTorch containers, and initial steps to offer containers that support a Python virtual environment for adding packages out-of-the-box.
  • Quantum ESPRESSO, GROMACS 2024.1 and NAMD 2.14: EasyConfigs for LUMI/23.09. An initial effort to compile NAMD 3.0b6 with GPU support is also included. Due to the beta nature of this package, problems are to be expected.
  • New EasyConfig for a GPU-enabled PETSc with the Cray toolchain

Release 20240301

  • VASP: VASP 6.4.2 for cpeGNU/23.09.
  • Fixes for the binding issues in the rocm containers
  • New documentation feature: We can now add some documentation to individual EasyConfigs to make it more clear which EasyConfig offers what features. See, e.g., PyTorch.

Release 20240207

Release 20240129

  • New package: Magma for cpeGNU, cpeCray and cpeAMD.
  • Updated EasyConfig for openFOAM
  • ROCm 5.7.1 container, and re-generated versions of the other ROCm containers.

Release 20240116

Release 20240110

  • Improved search in the LUMI Software Library, though for performance reasons we've chosen not to search the EasyConfigs themselves too.
  • Some software brought to 23.09, such as R, GDAL, GEOS and dependencies
  • KaHIP
  • AdaptiveCpp
  • Boost for cpeCray/23.09.

    Note that a workaround was needed for Boost to avoid a linker problem. See the technical documentation on the Boost page to find out what we did if you also run into link problems.

Release 20231215

Release 20231208

Release 20231121

  • Bug fixes for the module view
  • More container recipes

Release 20231116

  • Initial release of the LUMI/23.09 central software stack, including a first selection of user-installable build recipes
  • Initial support for creating modules that ease working with containers provided on LUMI.
  • New version of the cotainr module
  • Bug fix for the lumi-ldap-projectinfo command.
