Recent releases

  •  30 Apr 2012 23:44

    Release Notes: This release brings a much faster 'make check' for sub-GHz processors by means of the '--demo' command-line argument, processor count type, model, and clock detection, RAM size detection, Linux distro detection, and a new 64-bit integer logic exclusive-or test.

    •  28 Apr 2012 15:03

      Release Notes: This release adds a "-l" flag to create a master log file (independent of the already-provided per-process/per-thread logs, enabling fully-scripted unattended tests), a "-o" flag to prevent runaway tests from lasting more than the given number of seconds, a "--fast" option to speed initialization of 128-bit floating-point random value arrays (which can take a while on slower processors), environment variable (SWETSET) recognition, banner printout restricted to verbose mode (-v), and a faster "make check" target.

      •  23 Apr 2012 23:10

        Release Notes: This release includes intereg-64 bits, and floating-point-64 and -128 bits basic arithmetic tests.

        •  21 Apr 2012 13:07

          Release Notes: This release adds 128-bit floating point copy and compare tests, plus 32-bit 5-operation arithmetic tests.

          •  20 Apr 2012 01:44

            Release Notes: This inaugural release features uniform performance/efficiency units across platforms, multi-process (daemon) capability, multi-thread capability, a nanosecond precision option, flexible detail selection, floating-point tests, integer tests, math tests, 8-, 16-, 32-, 64-, and 128-bit tests, flexible test class selection, test sets definable by list and/or range, and test sets which may be read from a file or as a commandline argument.
