Release Notes: This release fixes Quark handling of the PAUSE instruction.
Release Notes: Adds support for XSAVEC and CLFLUSHOPT. Disables TSX CPUID bits when TSX emulation is not requested. Improves disassembly for MPX instructions. Adds an option for running chip-check only on the main executable. Adds support for -quark (Pentium ISA). Adds application debugging for Mac OS X with the lldb debugger.
Release Notes: This release adds support for Mac OS X version 10.9. Improved TSX statistics information. Various fixes with the emulation of floating-point instructions of the Intel AVX-512. The alignment checker tool is enabled by default for instructions that require alignment. A mismatch between mix and dynamic mask profiler has been fixed. The Intel MPX runtime libraries for Windows have been updated. Performance improvements when modeling a CPU prior to AVX-512.
Release Notes: Debugging with GDB is now supported with Intel AVX-512. Emulation of Intel AVX2 FMA and Intel AVX-512 FMA uses native FMA instructions when running on Haswell hosts. Various fixes with the emulation of floating-point and conversion instructions of Intel AVX-512. Disassembly of control transfer instructions displays the 'bnd' prefix when used with Intel MPX. The XED ISA set names for Intel AVX-512 have been updated.
Release Notes: This release adds emulation support for the Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel AVX-512) instructions, Intel Secure Hash Algorithm (Intel SHA) extensions, and Intel Memory Protection Extensions (Intel MPX), support for Hardware Lock Elision, improved support for Restricted Transactional Memory, and improved support for the OS X operating system (Mountain Lion).
Release Notes: Better support for OS X (Snow Leopard and Lion) using code signing. Improved support for the Restricted Transactional Memory (RTM) instructions. Support for debugger integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. A few minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release added support for processors codenamed Haswell and Broadwell, Mac OS X, and Restricted Transactional Memory. CPUID values now come from an input file. The -chip-check feature was improved. Haswell BMI emulation fixes, mix top-blocks sorting, and emulation of FMA instruction for denormal numbers were fixed. Debug trace multithreading safety was implemented. XED can now emit dot graphs for specified regions. Speed of the AVX/SSE transition checker was improved by roughly 12%. The GDB interface was updated, and multiprocess output file handling was added.
Release Notes: Linux 3.x is supported. There is better support for running on AVX-enabled hosts. All output files now begin "sde-" and end with ".txt" by default. Mix is faster and does more analysis of SIMD operations. Mix has line number support for the top blocks when the information is available in the application. The -ptr-chk option now checks the memory references of gather operations. A file descriptor leak when exec'ing thousands of threads on Linux has been fixed. There are miscellaneous other stability improvements.
Release Notes: Support for Haswell New Instructions.
Release Notes: Support for the POST-32NM processor instructions in the 008 revision of the Intel(R) AVX programmers reference document. Many stability improvements. The output of "sde -thelp" goes to stdout, not stderr. The mix tool has a "-demangle 0" option to turn off demangling. The xed disassembler handles uninitialized code sections in Windows binaries. Xed supports dwarf line number information with the -line knob on Linux. Mix has improved memory efficiency.
