On 7 September 2016, I received an email that indicates that Intel Fortran 2017 has been released. Great news ! I installed it. Softwares to be installed include, among others:
- Intel Math Kernel Library for OS X 2017
- Intel Data Analytics Acceleration Library for OS X 2017
Now, on 21 September 2016, I received a new email announcing 2 software updates:
- Intel Math Kernel Library for OS X 11.3, update 4
- Intel Data Analytics Acceleration Library for OS X 2016, update 4
I guess that the 7 September 2016 Fortran 2017 release supersedes the 21 September 2016 release, and that I can discard these updates number 4, right ? (In my old 2016 installation, I had update 3).
What usually happens is that shortly after we do a major release, we do one more update for the previous release for the benefit of customers who aren't ready to move to the new major version. These usually have limited bug fixes. We'll also be doing a Parallel Studio XE 2016 Update 4 very shortly. The components you mention updated a bit sooner - you can ignore those if you're no longer using the older version.
