Library of Optimized Inner Loops

Liboil is a collection of functions that often benefit from having special implementations on various architectures or CPUs. Each function in liboil has several implementations which may perform faster or slower on a given CPU. Some implementations use alternate algorithms, some use hand-crafted assembly, and some use special instructions that are only available on certain CPUs, such as MMX, SSE, or Altivec. The fastest implementation is automatically chosen at runtime.

This package contains the liboil shared libraries. It is typically installed automatically when an application or library requires it.

Package version:0.3.17-2


***** WARNING *****

Liboil is now in maintenence-only mode.  No new features will
be added, and bugs will be fixed according to their severity and
availablility of patches.

Users of liboil are recommended to switch to Orc

 - Lots of new classes and implementations were added for Schrödinger.
 - Several i386 implementations also compile on amd64, so these were
   copied over to a separate directory and are now enabled on amd64.
 - Feature detection on amd64 has been fixed.
 - All known startup warnings have been fixed.
 - The core now handles arrays that are 'N plus a constant' in length.

  * debian/patches/02_amd64-cpuid.patch:
    + Patch from upstream GIT to fix CPU ID detection on amd64.
  * debian/patches/03_stride-segfaults.patch:
    + Patch by Sebastian Andrzej Siewior to fix failures in the stride
      test of the testsuite and issues with some functions when being
      called with n=0 (Closes: #483352).
