PPL 0.7 has been released

Fri, 12/24/2004 - 18:54

The library can now be configured to use checked native integers (8, 16, 32 or 64 bits wide) as an alternative to the unbounded integer coefficients provided by the GMP library. The checked integer coefficients apply systematic and efficient overflow detection, raising an exception if the computed value cannot be represented by the underlying type. When the numerical coefficients involved are likely to be small, the user can obtain significant efficiency improvements while being sure that, if no exception is thrown, the results are reliable. This release also includes other important improvements ranging from major efficiency gains (for all configurations) to usability and portability. Several bugs have been fixed and a more consistent naming scheme for the library types has been adopted: as a result users willing to upgrade will have to do a little renaming work on their applications. But it is worth the effort. See the release notes for more information.
