Release Notes: wmpeg() from PDL::IO::Pic now uses the new ffmpeg back-end and can create many additional file formats beyond MPEG alone, including MP4 and animated GIF. The deprecated Karma imaging library support code has been removed from the PDL distribution. There were lots of improvements to the documentation and overall usability. Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix release with a number of small enhancements. FITS I/O now supports binary tables. Many improvements were made to the PLplot interface. PDL::Transform was upgraded. A new "pdl" command-line entry to the perldl shell allows #!-style scripting (so you can re-use your journal files verbatim). Various improvements were made for 64-bit systems. This release also deprecates the use of the 5.6 versions of perl. The use of the 5.8 series is recommended.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix release. The code has been updated to remove the warnings produced by perl 5.8.1. The PLplot interface has been updated for version 5.2.1. The m51.fits file has been replaced with a freely-distributable image from the Hubble Heritage archive.
Release Notes: This release requires Perl 5.6.0 and the Filter and Text::Balanced modules. Highlights include the improved slicing syntax (PDL::NiceSlice), powerful N-dimensional indexing and slicing, improved support for GSL, support for the PLPlot graphics library, coordinate transformation and image resampling, and the ability to use mutli-line constructs in the perldl shell.
Release Notes: PDL now compiles with perl 5.8.0. Speed improvements were made when generating piddles from a Perl array reference. PDL storage/retrieval is now possible using the PDL::IO::Storable module. The GNU Scientific Library Special Functions are now available from the PDL::GSL::SF module, and the % operator now matches the behavior of the Perl % operator.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix release with some additions, including PDL::IO::Dumper, which provides the capability to save and restore complex data structures including PDLs, and support for the new Astro::FITS::Header module (availiable on CPAN).
Release Notes: This release introduces the PDL::NiceSlice module to improve slicing syntax, the Inline:Pdlpp module to allow inline PDL::PP definitions (i.e. no Makefiles or building hassles for creating PP code), a record/playback feature for PGPLOT output, improved support for Mac OSX, and a number of bugfixes and minor enhancements. Compilation problems seen in 2.3 (notably for gimp-perl in the gimp distribution) have also been fixed.
Release Notes: The new PDL::Lvalue module makes use of Perl 5.6's lvalue subroutines. This version was updated to work with Perl version 5.6.1 and to improve the documentation. Bugs fixes were made for several memory leaks, "pow" and "minimum_n_ind" functions, and test failures related to OpenGL.
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement; a speed increase (most PDL functions are now done totally in C, without any Perl wrapper functions as was done with previous versions. The speedup will be most noticeable for operations on many small PDL arrays), and fixes for several memory leaks.
