Apparently, the addition of pstl has made TBB mandatory when installing C++.  So why is there an option to ask for C++ without TBB, which breaks the installer, at least on Windows?  Still, I don't see pstl include files in the installation.

Is it reasonable to expect that past combinations of plain STL with OpenMP will continue to work?  e.g. not running into issues such as KMP_BLOCKTIME delaying TBB from using hardware threads?

I suppose the above comment about Phi is an oblique way of informing us that support for MIC KNC has been withdrawn.

Hello Tim,

you said, an option to ask for C++ without TBB breaks the installer on Windows. Could you please explain what kind of breaking do you mean? Is installer crashed or you faced with another incorrect behavior during installation process?
