I feel an explanation of how the version numbers for the package change is
important so we all know what to expect in future releases. The major
number (1 at this time) changes when there is a paradigm shift in the way
the package works (See below TO-DO). There could be incompatibilities
with code written using different major number versions. The middle
revision number changes when important new features are added and the minor
version number changes generally for bug fixes and patches. There should
be no incompatibilities between mid and minor version changes.
Not much to say here, the package is fairly easy to compile and use. Read
the docs for how to use the API. The INSTALL file explains how to compile
and/or install/uninstall both the C and Python packages.
When new code is compiled it will link to libdll.so, and when a program
executes it will look for libdll.so.2. This is why they are sym-linked
to libdll.so.2.0.0 the current version.
The major version will change with the following code changes. At present
the linklist defaults to doing memory allocations for each node created. This
is wasteful of resources and time consuming. It is my hope to create a
mechanism to allow larger blocks of memory to be allocated which can be
changed on the fly. This should substantially speed up operations.
There is a fully thread safe version in the works, but I have been putting it
off for some years now. If ever I decide that it is something that people
really want I may continue with it, but for now it will stay in a maybe-will-do
