Subject: GNU Scientific Library (GSL) 0.9 is released - First Beta Test Release
> Dear GSL enthusiasts,
> I have just placed a new release snapshot of GSL (0.9) up for
> anonymous ftp access.
> This is the first beta-test release, after eight development releases.
> We will now be working towards a stable and fully-tested 1.0 release.
> We would like people to try out the code and examine the results for
> errors. Additions to the existing test-suite are especially welcome.
> The project home page is at
> and the source code is at
> which should soon also be available at the mirror sites.
> Installation: GSL uses the standard GNU installation procedure. The
> release tarball (gsl-0.9.tar.gz) comes with an INSTALL file.
> There is a zip file (gsl-0_9.zip) which includes project files for
> compiling GSL with Microsoft Visual C++ (see the file msvc/README.txt
> for details).
> Packaging: There is an RPM file for gsl-0.9 on the ftp site. Debian
> also provides GSL packages.
> Documentation: GSL has an extensive 400 page texinfo manual. The info
> files are installed in the usual way. The ftp site has the reference
> manual in postscript format, and the web site has the reference manual
> in HTML format.
> Here are the recent entries in the NEWS file.
> * What is new in gsl-0.9:
> ** There is a new system of vector and matrix views. Any code using
> vector and matrix views will need to be updated.
> ** The order of arguments of the view functions involving strides have
> been changed to be consistent with the rest of the library.
> ** The ode solvers have been reorganized.
> ** There are new eigensystem routines for real symmetric and complex
> hermitian matrices.
> ** The linear algebra directory now includes functions for computing
> symmetric tridiagonal decompositions and bidiagonal decompositions.
> ** The svd routines now include the Golub-Reinsch and Modified
> Golub-Reinsch algorithms in addition to the Jacobi algorithm.
> ** The interpolation directory has been reorganized and a higher-level
> "spline" interface has been added which simplifies the handling of
> interpolation arguments.
> ** IEEE support is now available on OpenBSD.
