Version 1.11 of the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is now
available.  GSL provides a large collection of routines for
numerical computing in C.

This is a maintenance release, which fixes reported bugs and
upgrades the build system to the latest libtool, autoconf and
automake.  The full NEWS file entry is appended below.

The file details are:      (2.6 MB)  (GPG signature)
  5a154d1cc66ac479197d25dd93a56da12a034c49       (sha1 checksum)

The GSL repository and bug database are now hosted on
Savannah at

The GSL project home page is

GSL is free software distributed under the GNU General Public

Thanks to everyone who reported bugs and contributed

* What is new in gsl-1.11:

** The GSL repository and bug database are now hosted at Savannah

** Upgraded to latest libtool, autoconf and automake (libtool-2.2,
   autoconf-2.61, automake-1.10.1)

** Fixed underflow in ODE adaptive step size controller that could
   cause step size to decrease to zero (bug #21933).

** Improved the handling of the asymptotic regime in gsl_sf_bessel_jl.

** Improved the handling of large arguments in cumulative distribution
   functions using the incomplete beta function, such as gsl_cdf_fdist_P.

** Fixed overflow bug in gsl_cdf_hypergeometric_{P,Q} for large
   arguments (bug #22293).

** gsl_ran_gaussian_ziggurat now handles generators with different
   ranges explicitly, to minimise the number of function calls
   required (bug #21820).  Also fixes bug #22446 (rng limit in

** Added missing error terms in gsl_sf_exp_mult_e10_e to prevent
   the error being underestimated (bug #22041).  

** Updated some constants to the CODATA 2006 values.

** The hypergeometric function gsl_sf_hyperg_2F1 now handles the case
   where x==1.

** Fixed a bug in the brent minimiser which prevented optimal convergence.

** Added functions for evaluating complex polynomials

** The convergence condition for gsl_multiroots_test_delta now accepts
   dxi == 0.

** Improved functions gsl_ldexp and gsl_frexp to handle the full range
   of double precision numbers in all cases.

** Added new quasi random generators gsl_qrng_halton and
   gsl_qrng_reversehalton which support dimensions up to 1229.

** Added function gsl_multifit_linear_residuals for computing the
   residuals of the fit

Version: GnuPG v1.4.0 (GNU/Linux)
