Following the announcement that Google Code finally gets git support, I’ve migrated my mdds source code repository from the old mercurial one to a new git one. For anyone who has the old mercurial repository of mdds checked out, please switch to the new git repo. Refer to this page on how to check out the new git-based mdds repository.
As for doing the actual migration, this blog post was very helpful.
I’m happy to announce that version 0.5.3 of Multi-Dimensional Data Structure (mdds) is available for download from the link below.
This is a bug fix release. In fact, the only change since 0.5.2 is in mixed_type_matrix, and in particular in its filled storage implementation. I’ve completely re-worked the fill storage backend of mixed_type_matrix in order to boost its performance on instantiation, whose effect will be evident when creating and destroying a large number of filled matrix objects.
There is no API-incompatible change in this release.
