The official release for Darshan version 3.1.3 is now available for 
download here 
<ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/darshan/releases/darshan-3.1.3.tar.gz>. We 
have tested this release extensively and believe it is stable and ready 
for use in production. On top of the numerous new features and bug fixes 
included in the darshan-3.1.3-pre1 release (listed in the original email 
copied below), the official version has one additional bug fix:

* Instrumentation of mmap calls is now disabled for dynamically linked 
applications (i.e., applications that LD_PRELOAD darshan)
     - this avoids potential deadlock issues on Cray systems when using 
dynamically linked executables (reported by Cristian Simarro)

You can find updated documentation for darshan-runtime and darshan-util 
components here 

Please let us know if you have any questions, issues, or concerns using 
this mailing list, or by opening an issue on the Darshan GitLab page
