-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Version 1.14 of the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is now available. GSL provides a large collection of routines for numerical computing in C. This is a maintenance release which fixes reported bugs. Support for multisets and fixed order Gauss-Legendre integration has been added and the build system has also been upgraded to the latest automake, autoconf and libtool. The full NEWS file entry is appended below. The file details are: http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gsl/gsl-1.14.tar.gz (3 MB) http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gsl/gsl-1.14.tar.gz.sig (GPG signature) e1a600e4fe359692e6f0e28b7e12a96681efbe52 (sha1 checksum) These URLs will redirect to a local mirror for faster downloading (the original files are at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gsl).

Brian Gough (GSL Maintainer) ====================================================================== * What is new in gsl-1.14: ** Upgraded to latest libtool, autoconf and automake (libtool-2.2.6b, autoconf-2.65, automake-1.11.1). Fixes security hole in 'make dist' (see Automake CVE-2009-4029). ** Added support for "multisets", which are similar to permutations and combinations. A multiset is an array of k integers in the range 0 to n-1 where each value may occur more than once. Multisets can be used to iterate over the indices of a k-th order symmetric tensor in n-space. (Rhys Ulerich) ** Added gsl_integrate_glfixed routines for performing fixed order Gauss-Legendre integration (Pavel Holoborodko, Konstantin Holoborodko, Rhys Ulerich) ** In the LMDER multi-dimensional fitting routines, the return code GSL_ENOPROG is now used instead of GSL_CONTINUE for the case where 10 or more attempts to find a suitable trial step have been made without success. [bug #25383] ** The confluent hypergeometric function gsl_sf_hyperg_U (a,b,x) has been extended to support x < 0 for cases not involving singularities in 1F1(a,b,x). [bug #27859] ** The F-distribution gsl_ran_fdist_pdf now avoids unnecessary underflow and overflow and handles cases where n > 248. [bug #28500] ** The SVD routines now use a scaled version of the implicit QR method and compute the shift more reliably for values at the limit of double precision, avoiding potential NaNs. [bug #28767] ** A compile time error is emitted if the configuration stage prevents the functions gsl_isnan and gsl_finite from being defined. ** Added missing dereference in GSL_VECTOR_COMPLEX when not using GSL_RANGE_CHECK [bug #28017] ** Improved the range of gsl_sf_hyperg1F1(a,b,x) when a<0,b>0. [bug #28718] ** Added macros GSL_MAJOR_VERSION and GSL_MINOR_VERSION in <gsl/gsl_version.h> ** Improved gsl_eigen_symmv and gsl_eigen_symm to avoid a potential infinite loop when the tridiagonalised matrix contains very small values. [bug #28096] ** Added functions gsl_multifit_linear_usvd and gsl_multifit_wlinear_usvd for multilinear fitting without column-scaling of the fit matrix. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux) iJwEAQECAAYFAkuZOOYACgkQ9U2K2oCCH+rPdwP/ZzSBLn5RMl10WVK6C60t4Yl5 9+6IURU1J+c1fg3O0s+z1h2wOahl+NSf3KD9h4yZXbVg799fGIgGsPIK68Um7hWo ge3vR7JwSVZFJls1CTXv5hgZpC1NhK+2zn1O8imkAEwKKoyHXBa5KUrLR+i78NoY 7YqpIGRhUpzqq91CCow= =d74X -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
