PAPI 5.6.0 contains a major cleanup of the source code and the build system to have consistent code structure, eliminate errors, and reduce redundancies. A number of validation tests have been added to PAPI to verify the PAPI preset events. Improvements and changes to multiple PAPI components have been made, varying from supporting new events to fixes in the component testing.
