Change Logs

* Thu Oct 15 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 1.8.0
  * New routines for the numerical evaluation of iterated
    integrals like elliptic multiple polylogarithms or iterated
    integrals of modular forms.
  * Stronger normalization methods for expressions with powers.
    Where this is safe, GiNaC now tries replacing various kinds of
    powers in order to find and cancel common subexpressions.
  * Improved CMake build.
- Drop _service file and go back to using full URL for Source.
- Update so version in keeping with upstream.
* Sun Oct 11 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Use multibuild to split off documentation building from main
  package, whereby we build only the reference documentation and
  tutorial pdf for the "doc" flavour and the main libraries and
  binaries for the unflavoured pkg.
- Move ginac.pdf from the -devel pkg into separate -doc-tutorial
  package as it requires texinfo and texlive to build, and bloats
  the main pkg BuildRequires; add Recommends: ginac-doc-tutorial
  for ginac-devel.
- BuildRequires: python3-base instead of python3.
* Tue Sep 22 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Add _service file to use git version at commit 9b53600 as it
  includes various build related fixes over latest tagged version
- Add patches to fix/improve builds when using cmake:
  * ginac-fix-makeindex.patch: Fix input file path when running
    `makeindex` which does not like absolute paths.
  * ginac-cmake-install-doc.patch: Install man and other
    documentation files when cmake is used for building.
- Drop ginac-check-for-python3.patch: incorporated upstream.
- Use cmake for build (Add BuildRequires: cmake and drop libtool).
- Build API documentation in PDF and HTML formats and package as
  part of new %{name}-doc-pdf and %{name}-doc-html packages
  respectively (add appropriate BuildRequires).
- Drop Group tags from packages.
* Tue Sep 22 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 1.7.11:
  * Fix elusive bugs in factor() and in expand().
- Changes from version 1.7.10:
  * Fix collect_common_factors() for hidden zero arguments.
  * Fix build on modern systems (C++20 and Python3).
- Changes from version 1.7.9:
  * Fix unarchiving of overloaded functions.
  * Fix MinGW64 build.
* Mon Sep 21 2020 Cristian Rodríguez <>
- Fail to build if there are undefined symbols in the shared library
* Thu Feb 06 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 1.7.8
  * Fix pseries::evalf(), broken since 1.7.0.
  * Fix a corner-case bug in H_evalf().
- Changes from version 1.7.4 to 1.7.7: See
  %{_docdir}/ginac-devel/NEWS file.
- Use python3 instead of python(2) for building.
- Add ginac-check-for-python3.patch to check for python3 during
  configure; requires running autoreconf before configure.
- Rename devel file to ginac-devel, instead of libginac-devel,
  according to recommended naming guidelines.
- Build and package API documentation and examples in html format;
  add BuildRequires necessary for this.
- Use Requires(post) and Requires(preun) instead of PreReq.
* Fri Apr 06 2018
- Drop baselibs.conf completely: This was introdcued two years ago
  but in this entire time, nobody cared that the resulting -32bit
  library was not installable due to missing dependencies. So it
  is obvioulsy not used.
* Wed Apr 04 2018
- Drop ginac-devel from baselibs: baselibs was produced in 2016,
  but the deps for it where never in place, which means
  ginac-devel-32bit was never installable, and nobody cared.
  Clearly this -32bit package is not used (for -devel there is
  rarely a need for a -32bit package).
* Sun Mar 11 2018
- Update to version 1.7.4:
  * Fix ABI compatibility with 1.7.[0-2] (broken unintentionally
    in 1.7.3).
* Sun Feb 04 2018
- Remove --with-pic which has no effect with --disable-static.
- Fix the shlib package's RPM groups.
* Sat Feb 03 2018
- Update to 1.7.3:
  * Speed up some corner cases of polynomial factorization.
  * Speed up some corner cases of gcd computation.
  * Speed up factorization of pre-factored polynomials.
  * Make matrix::solve() work with hidden (non-normal) zeros.
  * Fix bug in evaluation of real and imaginary parts of powers.
  * Fix some LaTeX output, add new function symbol::get_TeX_name().
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
* Mon Jan 30 2017
- Update to version 1.7.2:
  * Fix memory leak in operators returning relationals, introduced
    in 1.7.0.
  * Make macro GINAC_DECLARE_REGISTERED_CLASS() work outside
    namespace GiNaC.
  * Fix some build issues.
- Drop ginac-replace-mktemp-with-mkstemp.patch: incorporated
* Fri Nov 25 2016
- Fix baselibs.conf file.
* Mon Nov 21 2016
- Add ginac-replace-mktemp-with-mkstemp.patch: Replace unsafe and
  deprecated mktemp by its safe variant mkstemp; patch taken from
  upstream git and fixes an rpmlint warning.
* Mon Nov 21 2016
- Update to version 1.7.1:
  * Fix crash in basic::subs(), visible in classes which don't
    override it.
  * Fix convergence failure in Li_projection.
  * Fix cliffor_bar() and clifford_star().
  * Improve performance of clifford_to_lst().
  * Fix compilation issues, reduce compiler warnings.
- Changes from version 1.7.0:
  * Make use of C++11 features:
  - Use new language features 'auto', 'nullptr', 'constexpr',
    range-based for loops, the contextual keyword 'override',
    static 'noexcept' operator, etc.
  - Add initializer list ctors for container<>, lst and nested
    initializer lists ctor for class matrix.
  - Add many rvalue reference overloads for ctors from std
    containers. (Note that whether they really speed up things
    depends on whether evaluation leaves the container unchanged
    or not.)
  - Rvalue reference overloads for ctors from std containers
    made it possible to remove the manual 'discardable' hack and
    std::auto_ptr<T> for good.
  - New dynallocate<T>(args...) helper functions obsolete manual
    allocation on the heap and setting the dynallocated status
  - Got rid of C++98ish algorithm features (bind2nd, etc.) and
    replaced them with lambdas.
  * Make add::eval(), mul::eval() more careful so they return an
    evaluated, canonical expression without compromise.
  * Remove 'level' argument of all .eval() methods.
  * Remove 'level' arguments of all .evalf() and .normal()
    methods. They were modeled after the .eval() methods.
  * Make relational::rhs() and lhs() nonvirtual.
  * Add support for power::info(info_flags::real).
  * Add fderivative::derivatives() method.
  * Remove broken info_flags::algebraic.
  * Remove unmaintained support for Cint.
  * Remove unfinished code for hash table-based expairseq.
  * Remove deprecated ex::to_rational(lst) and
  * ginac-excompiler installs in $LIBEXECDIR now, not in $BINDIR.
  * Many minor performance enhancements.
