Release Notes: This release fully supports all matrix/vector types specified by BLAS (i.e. matrices with band, packed, or full storage formats and dense vectors). In addition, sparse matrices with coordinate and compressed storage formats are available. The tutorials were extended to exemplify how users can integrate new matrix/vector types into FLENS. They further demonstrate how matrix views can easily be utilized to implement numerical high performance algorithms.
Release Notes: This release added matrix-vector products for general, symmetric, and hermitian sparse matrices with CRS and CCS format. Examples were added for user-defined matrix types.
Release Notes: Most of the documentation was rewritten. The list of generic FLENS-LAPACK functions was extended. A generic implementation of RefBLAS was completed (called CXXBLAS). Sparse matrix types were redesigned (still experimental). An example was added for interfacing with the sparse solver from SuperLU.
Release Notes: This release adds sparse matrix types. There are two types for general and symmetric matrices. For element storage, the "compressed row storage" format is used: the elements can be initialized in random (i.e. arbitrary) order. The tutorial slides have been extended with a demonstration of how to use sparse matrices, more details about how linear algebra expression are evaluated by FLENS, and an example on how to extend FLENS with new matrix/vector types.
Release Notes: Some bugs in the Makefiles and configuration template files were fixed. A bug in the FLENS wrapper functions for the Level 3 BLAS were fixed. Wrapper functions were added to apply some Level 1 BLAS functions like copy and axpy to GeMatrix and GbMatrix.
Release Notes: An initial version of a tutorial has been added. This release is under the BSD license (revised).
Release Notes: The user's guide was extended, and many documented examples were added. A section called "FLENS in the classroom" was added. This section describes the library has been used to supplement lectures on numerical analysis for undergraduates.
Release Notes: The examples were cleaned up. Plotting is now provided though linking against PlotServer.
Release Notes: The matrix and vector hierarchies were simplified to remove multiple inheritance. Support for using matlab for plotting was started, and requires plotserver.
Release Notes: NAGC is now properly supported in addition to LAPACK. A new LU solver was added. Bugfixes related to operations with matrix slices were made.
