Name        : polybori
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.8.3
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://polybori.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Framework for Boolean Rings
Description :
PolyBoRi is a special purpose computer algebra system for computations
in Boolean Rings.  The core is a C++ library, which provides high-level
data types for Boolean polynomials and related structures.  As a unique
approach, binary decision diagrams are used as internal storage type for
polynomial structures.  On top of this, we provide a Python interface
for parsing of complex polynomial systems, as well as for sophisticated
and extendable strategies for Gröbner base computation.

Update Information:

Upstream notes on this release:
- library version naming scheme defaults to libpolybori*.x.y.so.z.0.0 now
- Removed directory M4RI, m4ri not embedded anymore (but downloaded on demand)
- fixed broken PolyGUI
- new option groebner_basis(..., fglm_bound=40000)
- improved boost libraries detection
- skip python docs for external python extension
- removed spaces from arguments for shell_output to fix SConstruct on darwin
- added header polybori/embed.h for easy python/polybori integration
- support pkgconfig and .desktop files
- ipbori2, ipbori2.*, PolyGUI2, PolyGUI2.x for supporting multiple python
- side-by-side installation of python module documentation for multiple python
- LIBRARY_VERSION customizable
- fixed boost::python::range disambiguity by explicitly using namespace
- added target docs and install-docs for building and installing platform-independent documentation (DOCS=False to suppress them on build and install)
- target naming: prepare-install, prepare-docs, prepare-static, prepare-devel, install, install-docs, install-headers, install-static, install-devel, build (without docs, but with static libs)
- aliases: devel-install (=install-devel), docs (=prepare-docs)
- Note: prepare-install and install do not care for static libs anymore
