Name        : ntl
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 6.2.1
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : http://shoup.net/ntl/
Summary     : High-performance algorithms for vectors, matrices, and polynomials
Description :
NTL is a high-performance, portable C++ library providing data structures
and algorithms for arbitrary length integers; for vectors, matrices, and
polynomials over the integers and over finite fields; and for arbitrary
precision floating point arithmetic.

NTL provides high quality implementations of state-of-the-art algorithms for:
* arbitrary length integer arithmetic and arbitrary precision floating point
* polynomial arithmetic over the integers and finite fields including basic
  arithmetic, polynomial factorization, irreducibility testing, computation
  of minimal polynomials, traces, norms, and more;
* lattice basis reduction, including very robust and fast implementations of
  Schnorr-Euchner, block Korkin-Zolotarev reduction, and the new
  Schnorr-Horner pruning heuristic for block Korkin-Zolotarev;
* basic linear algebra over the integers, finite fields, and arbitrary
  precision floating point numbers.

Update Information:

See https://forge.imag.fr/frs/shownotes.php?group_id=187&release_id=418 for information on changes in givaro 3.8.0.

See http://shoup.net/ntl/doc/tour-changes.html for information on changes in ntl 6.2 and 6.2.1.

Upstream notes on the changes in m4ri and m4rie 20140914: The biggest change is that A->offset was dropped. Also, various small (multicore) performance improvements were implemented. The update for M4RIE is to maintain compatibility with M4RI. A few improvements were implemented for the mzd_poly module as well.

All other updates are rebuilds due to the above changes.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use
su -c 'yum update ntl' at the command line.
