 	moment due to other problems with libtool.

Thu Mar  2 20:52:50 2000  Brian Gough  <>

	* templates_on.h (ATOMIC_IO): added an internal type for IO, for
 	the cases where it isn't possible to read and write a type

	people on the net, even those which are too small to warrant
	adding the author to the AUTHORS file.  The THANKS file should

Mon Feb  8 18:39:35 1999  Brian Gough  <>

	* added new type gsl_function for arbitrary functions with
 	parameters, and gsl_fdf for functions and their derivatives

Mon Feb  8 18:39:35 1999  Brian Gough  <>

	* gsl_complex.h: added GSL_SET_REAL(&z,x) and GSL_SET_IMAG(&z,y),
 	changed GSL_COMPLEX_SET(z,x,y) to GSL_SET_COMPLEX(&z,x,y) to match.

1999-01-03  Mark Galassi  <>

	*, improved, based on the gtk+  Added it to's EXTRA_DIST list.

1999-01-02  Mark Galassi  <>

	* introduced a test for hypot(), in case a system
	does not have it.

1999-01-03  Mark Galassi  <>

	* added this simple script which calls aclocal,
	automake --add-missind and autoconf, followed by ./configure with
	all the arguments.

	* configure,, */ removed these
	auto-generated files.

Fri Dec 11 16:50:27 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* AUTHORS: corrected the spelling of Gerard Jungman's name (it's
 	either Gerard or Jerry, but not Gerry)

1998-12-05  Mark Galassi  <>

	* made the version be 0.4after so it's clear that
	snapshots will be post-0.4.

	* HACKING: updated a bit to work with the new CVS repository.

Mon Nov 23 16:09:21 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* gsl_config.h: removed, it was an unnecessary hack just for
 	defining macros. Autoconf's config.h should be used by the
 	programmer instead.
Sat Nov 21 20:39:14 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* texinfo.tex: removed, this is a duplicate and shouldn't be
 	needed in the top-level directory (it is in docs)

	* move any included headers in _source.c files into the master
 	file that includes the _source.c, since this saves time when

	* standardized on HAVE_PRINTF_LONGDOUBLE

Fri Nov 20 15:14:53 1998  Brian Gough  <>

 	GSL_DBL_MAX, ...

	* added sys directory for miscellaneous gsl system functions like
 	max and min

Thu Nov 19 22:46:43 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* removed MAX and MIN

Wed Nov 18 10:40:18 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* gsl_math.h: added prototypes for inline functions GSL_MAX_INT

Tue Nov 10 20:05:27 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* gsl_math.h: moved the MAX(a,b) and MIN(a,b) to gsl_math.h and
 	renamed them GSL_MAX(a,b) and GSL_MIN(a,b) to avoid inevitable
 	conflicts with system macros.

Mon Nov  9 21:08:10 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* config.h: added MAX(a,b) and MIN(a,b) macros since we use these
 	everywhere. We assume that if they are defined by the system then
 	they do actually work.

1998-11-06    <>

	* add -mieee on alpha platforms, also check for both
	scanf and printf working with long double

1998-08-31  James Theiler  <>

	* (SUBDIRS): added utils directory

	* (AC_OUTPUT): added utils/Makefile 

	* (AC_REPLACE_FUNCS): added strtol, strtoul; removed
	strerror since it's already hardcoded into the err/ directory

1998-08-30  Mark Galassi  <>

	* upped release number to 0.4; about to tag and make
	the release.

1998-08-20  Mark Galassi  <>

	* upped version to 0.4-interim as we prepare for a
	0.4 snapshot.

	* NEWS: now refers to 0.4 instead of 0.3g.  Also "commented out"
	(smile) the note that says "we need to do a better job with the
	news file", since it looks quite good now!

1998-08-19  Mark Galassi  <>

	* doc/ (EXTRA_DIST): added ran-exppow.tex,
	rand-levy.tex, rand-gumbel.tex and rand-bernoulli.tex to
	EXTRA_DIST.  Now they are included in the distribution and a "make
	distcheck" goes further.

Thu Jul 30 16:12:05 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* now using a script to write the AR commands
 	explicitly, this should be more portable

Tue Jul 28 23:07:04 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* new style single build of libgsl.a

Fri Jul 10 19:57:49 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* removed AC_FUNC_ALLOCA since we don't use alloca
 	(it is not ansi)

Sun Jun 28 14:31:31 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* replaced the random/ directory by the rng/ directory and made
 	minor changes in randist/, siman/ to accommodate it

Tue Jun 23 19:49:22 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* added a top-level file gsl_config.h for detecting features when
 	users include the library headers. Currently it just turns on
 	HAVE_INLINE if you are using GCC or C++.

1998-05-16  Mark Galassi  <>

	* Brian fixed the error where libgslerr.a was not
	being installed in the 0.3e release, so I just bumped it up to
	0.3f to make a new release.

1998-05-14  Mark Galassi  <>

	* upped the version to 0.3e, and this time I might
	actually make the public snapshot!

Wed Apr  8 18:30:48 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* Now using the automake variable check_PROGRAMS everywhere for
 	the testing programs (no need to build them unless we do make

Mon Apr  6 15:09:08 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* added matrix and vector subdirectories

Wed Mar 18 10:27:27 1998  Brian Gough  <>

	* gsl_complex.h: the typedef for 'complex' has been renamed to
 	gsl_complex, to avoid conflicts with C++ bindings and libstdc++

1998-02-09  Mark Galassi  <>

	* 0.3b is now released, so I upped the version
	number to 0.3c-interim.

1998-02-09  Mark Galassi  <>

	* upped version number to 0.3b
