Second NMatrix Alpha Released

On Friday, we released the somewhat overdue second alpha of NMatrix, version 0.0.2.

This second alpha has boasts a significantly improved and much more maintainable code base, thanks to our Summer 2012 SciRuby Fellow, Chris Wailes, and sponsoring organization Brighter Planet.

The library has been almost completely rewritten in C++, with API available for both C and C++.

It also includes basic slicing support for dense and list matrices and dense LU decomposition.

Check it out and let us know what you think! Remember to look in the issue tracker if you have any problems.

Finally, if you’re a student, you should consider applying to be a SciRuby Fellow this winter or spring.
