CoCoALib 0.98.0 release
- compile failure with gcc 3.3.1 on SuSE 9.0: The compilation of CoCoALib fail due to issues in the header containing SmartPtr. This cannot be fixed by us in a reasonable amount of time, so please update your compiler. Updating to another 3.3.x release does not fix the problem since the same headers are picked up again. 3.4.x as well as 4.0.x and 4.1.x work fine even on that rather old distribution.
- link failure with Intel C++ on Linux: Files in TmpFactorDir is compiled as C code due to having lower case .c extensions. This leads to a link failure in test-factor.C. The solutions is to rename the file extension from lower case c to an upper case C. This will hopefully be fixed in a future release. FIXME: add script to do this.
- crashes in InterreduceGB or F5: This has only been observed with MSVC 2005 and MSVC 2005 SP1. Both are bugs in the CoCoALib 0.98.0 release, a patch can be found here. It applies cleanly against 0.98.0.
Please update to 0.98.0 because it fixes a number of issues. If you have problems porting your code please contact us in the forum.
