Hello Everyone,

I’d like to announce the following tickets for reading at the MPI Forum in Zurich. They are separate tickets for the solutions that were discussed for safe string handling with MPI for Info strings in Chicago.

Ticket #133: https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/issues/133 This solution proposes two new functions for safely handling string MPI_Info_get_string and MPI_Info_get_buflen

Ticket #146: https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/issues/146 This solution uses a single function MPI_Info_get_string to both provide required buffer lengths and the value string itself.

Ticket #147: Deprecates the existing functions of MPI_Info_get and MPI_Info_get_valuelen that were unsafe in C
