Linear Algebra Library ViennaCL 1.5.0 released

December 23rd, 2013

The latest release 1.5.0 of the free open source linear algebra library ViennaCL is now available for download. The library provides a high-level C++ API similar to Boost.ublas and aims at providing the performance of accelerators at a high level of convenience without having to deal with hardware details. Some of the highlights from the ChangeLog are as follows: Vectors and matrices of integers are now supported, multiple OpenCL contexts can be used in a fully multi-threaded manner, products of sparse and dense matrices are now available, and certain BLAS functionality is also provided through a shared library for use with programming languages other than C++, e.g. C, Fortran, or Python.
