Eigen 3.0-beta3

Released February 12, 2011.

The biggest news is that the API is now 100% stable.

Main changes since 3.0-beta2:

  • The "too many to list them all" category:
    • lots of bug fixes
    • lots of performance fixes
    • lots of compiler support fixes
    • lots of warning fixes
    • lots of unit tests improvements and fixes
    • lots of documentation improvements
    • lots of build system fixes

    • replaced ei_ prefix by internal:: namespace. For example, ei_cos(x) becomes internal::cos(x).
    • renamed PlanarRotation -> JacobiRotation
    • renamed DenseStorageBase -> PlainObjectBase
    • HouseholderSequence API cleanup
    • refactored internal metaprogramming helpers to follow closely the standard library
    • made UpperBidiagonalization internal

Eigen 2.0.15

Released July 16, 2010

Changes since 2.0.14:

  • Fix bug: certain cases of matrix-vector product (depending on storage order) were blocked by an assertion failure.

Eigen 3.0-beta1

Released July 5, 2010

See the announcement.

Eigen 2.0.14

Released June 22, 2010

Changes since 2.0.13:

  • Fix #141: crash in SSE (alignment problem) when using dynamic-size matrices with a max-size fixed at compile time that is not a multiple of 16 bytes. For example, Matrix<double,Dynamic,Dynamic,AutoAlign,5,5>.
  • Fix #142: LU of fixed-size matrices was causing dynamic memory allocation (patch by Stuart Glaser).
  • Fix #127: remove useless static keywords (also fixes warnings with clang++).

Eigen 2.0.13

Released June 10, 2010

Changes since 2.0.12:

  • Fix #132: crash in certain matrix-vector products. Unit test added.
  • Fix #125: colwise norm() and squaredNorm() on complex types do not return real types
  • Fully support the QCC/QNX compiler (thanks to Piotr Trojanek). The support in 2.0.12 was incomplete. The whole test suite is now successful.
  • As part of the QCC support work, a lot of standards compliance work: put std:: in front of a lot of things such as size_t, check whether the math library needs to be linked to explicitly...
  • Fix precision issues in LDLT. The isPositiveDefinite() method is now always returning true, but it was conceptually broken anyway, since a non-pivoting LDLT decomposition can't know that.
  • Compilation fix in ldlt() on expressions.
  • Actually install the Eigen/Eigen and Eigen/Dense public headers!
  • Fix readcost for complex types.
  • Fix compilation of the BTL benchmarks.
  • Some dox updates.

Eigen 2.0.12

Released February 12, 2010

Changes since 2.0.11:

  • EIGEN_DEFAULT_TO_ROW_MAJOR is fully supported and tested.
  • Several important fixes for row-major matrices.
  • Fix support of several algorithms for mixed fixed-dynamic size matrices where the fixed dimension is greater than the dynamic dimension. For example: Matrix<float,3,Dynamic>(3,2)
  • fix EIGEN_DONT_ALIGN: now it _really_ disables vectorization (was giving a #error unless you also used EIGEN_DONT_VECTORIZE).
  • Fix #92: Support QNX's QCC compiler (patch by Piotr Trojanek)
  • Fix #90, missing type cast in LU, allow to use LU with MPFR (patch by 'Wolf').
  • Fix ICC compiler support: work around a bug present at least in ICC 11.1.
  • Compilation fixes for computeInverse() on expressions.
  • Fix a gap in a unit-test (thanks to Jitse Niesen)
  • Backport improvements to benchmarking code.
  • Documentation fixes

Eigen 2.0.11

Released January 10, 2010

Changes since 2.0.10:

  • Complete rewrite of the 4x4 matrix inversion: we now use the usual cofactors approach, so no numerical stability problems anymore (bug #70)
  • Still 4x4 matrix inverse: SSE path for the float case, borrowing code by Intel, giving very high performance.
  • Fix crash happening on 32-bit x86 Linux with SSE, when double's were created at non-8-byte-aligned locations (bug #79).
  • Fix bug in Part making it crash in certain products (bug #80).
  • Precision improvements in Quaternion SLERP (bug #71).
  • Fix sparse triangular solver for lower/row-major matrices (bug #74).
  • Fix MSVC 2010 compatibility.
  • Some documentation improvements.

Eigen 2.0.10

Released November 25, 2009

Changes since 2.0.9:

  • Rewrite 4x4 matrix inverse to improve precision, and add a new unit test to guarantee that precision. It's less fast, but it's still faster than the cofactors method.
  • Fix bug #62: crash in SSE code with MSVC 2008 (Thanks to Hauke Heibel).
  • Fix bug #65: MatrixBase::nonZeros() was recursing infinitely
  • Fix PowerPC platform detection on Mac OSX.
  • Prevent the construction of bogus MatrixBase objects and generate good compilation errors for that. Done by making the default constructor protected, and adding some private constructors.
  • Add option to initialize all matrices by zero: just #define EIGEN_INITIALIZE_MATRICES_BY_ZERO
  • Improve Map documentation
  • Install the pkg-config file to share/pkgconfig, instead of lib/pkgconfig (thanks to Thomas Capricelli)
  • fix warnings
  • fix compilation with MSVC 2010
  • adjust to repository name change

Eigen 2.0.9

Released October 24, 2009

Changes since 2.0.8:

  • Really fix installation and the pkg-config file.
  • Install the NewStdVector header that was introduced in 2.0.6.

Eigen 2.0.8

Released October 23, 2009

Changes since 2.0.7:

  • fix installation error introduced in 2.0.7: it was choking on the pkg-config file eigen2.pc not being found. The fix had been proposed long ago by Ingmar Vanhassel for the development branch, and when recently the pkg-config support was back-ported to the 2.0 branch, nobody thought of backporting this fix too, and apparently nobody tested "make install" !
  • SVD: add default constructor. Users were relying on the compiler to generate one, and apparenty 2.0.7 triggered a little MSVC 2008 subtlety in this respect. Also added an assert.

Eigen 2.0.7

Released October 22, 2009

Changes since 2.0.6:

  • fix bug #61: crash when using Qt QVector on Windows 32-bit. By Hauke Heibel.
  • fix bug #10: the reallocateSparse function was half coded
  • fix bug in SparseMatrix::resize() not correctly initializing by zero
  • fix another bug in SparseMatrix::resize() when outerSize==0. By Hauke Heibel.
  • fully support GCC 3.3. It was working in 2.0.2, there was a compilation error in 2.0.6, now for the first time in 2.0.7 it's 100% tested (the test suite passes without any errors, warnings, or failed tests).
  • SVD: add missing assert (help catch mistakes)
  • fixed warnings in unit-tests (Hauke Heibel)
  • finish syncing Memory.h with the devel branch. This is cleaner and fixes a warning. The choice of system aligned malloc function may be affected by this change.
  • add pkg-config support by Rhys Ulerich.
  • documentation fix and doc-generation-script updates by Thomas Capricelli

Eigen 2.0.6

Released September 23, 2009

Changes since 2.0.5:

  • fix bug: visitors didn't work on row-vectors.
  • fix bug #50: compilation errors with swap().
  • fix bug #42: Add Transform::Identity() as mentioned in the tutorial.
  • allow to disable all alignment code by defining EIGEN_DONT_ALIGN (backport from devel branch).
  • backport the devel branch's StdVector header as NewStdVector. You may also #define EIGEN_USE_NEW_STDVECTOR to make StdVector use it automatically. However, by default it isn't used by StdVector, to preserve compatibility.
  • Vectorized quaternion product (for float) by Rohit Garg (backport from devel branch).
  • allow to override EIGEN_RESTRICT and add EIGEN_DONT_USE_RESTRICT_KEYWORD
  • fix a warning in ei_aligned_malloc; fixed by backporting the body from the devel branch; may result in a different choice of system aligned malloc function.
  • update the documentation.

Eigen 2.0.5

Released August 22, 2009

Changes since 2.0.4:

  • fix bug: in rare situations involving mixed storage orders, a matrix product could be evaluated as its own transpose
  • fix bug: LU::solve() crashed when called on the LU decomposition of a zero matrix
  • fix bug: EIGEN_STACK_ALLOCATION_LIMIT was too high, resulting in stack overflow for a user. Now it is set as in the devel branch.
  • fix compilation bug: our StdVector header didn't work with GCC 4.1. (Bug #41)
  • fix compilation bug: missing return statement in Rotation2D::operator*= (Bug #36)
  • in StdVector, a more useful #error message about the #including order
  • add EIGEN_TRANSFORM_PLUGIN allowing to customize the Transform class
  • fix a warning with MSVC
  • fix a bug in our cmake code when building unit-tests (thanks to Marcus Hanwell)
  • work around a bug in cmake that made it fail to build unit-tests when fortran wasn't installed
  • in our cmake code, remove the part about retrieving the mercurial info and appending it to the version number in the dox
  • dox: remove the old example list
  • fix the option to build a binary library, although it's not very useful and will be removed
  • add basic .hgignore file and script to build the docs (thanks to Thomas Capricelli)

Eigen 2.0.4

Released August 1, 2009

Changes since 2.0.3:

  • Several fixes in the overloaded new and delete operators. Thanks to Hauke Heibel.
  • compilation fix: add the missing ei_atan2 function. Thanks to Manuel Yguel.
  • Use ei_atan2 instead of using std::atan2 directly.
  • several compilation fixes in the Qt interoperability code: methods toQTransform() and toQMatrix(). Thanks to Anthony Truchet.
  • compilation fix and simplification in Matrix assignment
  • compilation fixes in "a *= b" and "a=a*b" when a has to be resized.
  • remove a "stupid" version of ei_pow. for integers for gcc >= 4.3

  • add Eigen/Eigen and Eigen/Dense headers for convenience
  • document a newly found cause for the "unaligned array" assertion
  • backport documentation improvements on transpose() and adjoint()
  • updates in the Sparse module (was needed to support KDE 4.3)

Eigen 2.0.2

Released May 22, 2009

Changes since 2.0.1:

  • Fix linearRegression() compilation, actually it is reimplemented using the better fitHyperplane() which does total least-squares.
  • Add missing setZero() etc... variants taking size parameters and resizing. These were mentioned in the tutorial but weren't implemented.
  • Fix posix_memalign platform check. This fixes portability issues. Thanks to Ross Smith.
  • Fix detection of SSE2 on the Windows 64-bit platform.
  • Fix compatibility with the old GCC 3.3: it is now fully supported again.
