May 2, 2014. mutils-0.4-2 ------------------------ - Voronoi diagram output in triangle mex file. triangle returns -1 for 'infinite ray' edges. In the triangle mex file this value is converted to 0. - Exact predicates by Shewtchuk added to point location routines. In this release exact predicates are used by default. The code is routhly twice slower, but robust in cases when points lie very close to triangle edges/tetrahedron sides. NOTE: next release will not have exact predicates turned on by default, since the native mutils code will be made more robust in the hard cases. - Point in tetrahedron implemented for tsearch2 - see ex_tsearch_3d in examples directory. - bug fixes The MEX files provided with the release are compiled as follows: - Linux: Ubuntu 14.04, gcc 4.8, with OpenMP - MacOS: OS X Maverics, Xcode 5.0.2, no Openmp - Windows: Windows 7, with OpenMP Sep 6, 2013. mutils-0.4-1 ------------------------ This is a minor bugfix release: - fix compilation on MacOS with XCode only (no gcc from macports) - the default compiled mex files for Mac are compiled using Xcode 4.6 on Mountain Lion 10.8.2 WITH NO OPENMP SUPPORT. There is a better change they will run out of the box. Previously, mex files compiled with macports lacked libraries on some systems. Mex files are compiled WITHOUT OpenMP support on Windows and Mac, and WITH OpenMP on Linux. To change compile options, edit mutils_config.m. Jun 20, 2013. mutils-0.4 ------------------------ This release contains several new features and significant code changes: - cpu affinity in parallelized mex files if off by default. It can be turned on by an option passed to the mex function. - number of threads in OpenMP parallelized mex files can now be set using nthreads field of opts structure - FEM interpolation implemented using SSE2/AVX on supporting CPUs, for triangular and quad elements, which gives significant speedups. - sorted lists implemented using SSE/AVX: considerable speed improvements - einterp returns local coordinates of markers in containing elements - sparse_create is parallelized (see ex_sparse) - METIS is patched to use 64-bit integers, hence it works for large matrices with more than 2^32 non-zero entries. This applies both to metis_part, and to SuiteSparse metis interface. To disable 64-bit metis in SuiteSparse, in suitesparse_install.m comment out copyfile lines below "% apply 64-bit patch for METIS 4" comment The mex files distributed by default are compiled with SSE2 only. If your compiler and CPU support it, you might want to recompile with appropriate compiler options. You can change them in mutils_config.m. Oct 23, 2012. mutils-0.3 ------------------------ This release contains several new features and bug fixes: - parallel SpMV (look at ex_spmv example) - METIS graph partitioning MEX function (metis_part) - fast RCM reordering MEX function (mrcm) - einterp MEX function now supports a range of different elements: tri3, tri7, quad4, quad9 for 1 and 2 degrees of freedom per node (number of interpolated values per node) - compiles on Windows (VS), Linux (gcc) and Mac (needs Xcode + additionally installed gcc, see INSTALL for details) Also improved documentation - extensive documentation in the MATLAB scripts - HTML reports generated for all scripts in examples/ directory. Can be found in Documentation. Aug 31, 2012. mutils-0.2 ------------------------ This is a quick bugfix release. There were some problems with quadtree('locate') that caused segfaults in certain cases. In addition, this distribution contains binary compiled mex files for Windows (using the Windows SDK compiler), and for Linux using gcc. Note that the Windows binaries are NOT compiled with OpenMP support, so there are only sequential MEX files. Aug 8, 2012. mutils-0.1 ------------------------ MUTILS is a package that provides a set of utilities we find useful for high-resolution modeling. The tools are written in C and made available in MATLAB through the MEX interface, hence installation requires a working MEX compiler. The code is optimized for modern multi-core CPUs. Some functions are parallelized using OpenMP. Initial release contains the following functions: sparse_create a routine that assembles sparse matrices resulting from the Finite Element Method. It is significantly faster than MATLABs sparse, and uses a lot less memory. quadtree a 2D quad-tree implementation with point-in-triangle location and spatial reordering functionality. tsearch2 a quad-tree based point-in-triangle location routine, similar to MATLAB’s tsearch, but significantly faster and parallelized with OpenMP. einterp a FEM interpolation routine using SSE2 instructions and OpenMP parallelization. Currently only the 7-node triangular element is supported, with more elements coming at users request. A short documentation of the MEX functions is available in the *.m files and can be accessed from MATLAB by typing e.g., help quadtree. mutils come with a set of examples - have a look in the examples/ directory. In addition, mutils provide scripts to download and install external software packages: triangle by Jonathan Richard Shewchuk. The mutils package provides MEX interface for triangle SuiteSparse by Tim Davis.
