MeTA v2.2.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2016-04-09 // about 5 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ†• New features

    • Parallelized versions of PageRank and Personalized PageRank have been
      โž• added. A demo is available in wiki-page-rank; see the website for
      more information on obtaining the required data.
    • โž• Add a disk-based streaming minimal perfect hash function library. A
      sub-component of this is a small memory-mapped succinct data structure
      library for answering rank/select queries on bit vectors.
    • ๐Ÿšš Much of our CMake magic has been moved into a separate project included
      as a submodule: https://github.com/meta-toolkit/meta-cmake, which can
      ๐Ÿ‘ท now be used in other projects to simplify initial build system
      ๐Ÿ”ง configuration.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fix parameter settings in language model rankers not being range checked
      (issue #134).
    • Fix incorrect incoming edge insertion in directed_graph::add_edge().
    • Fix find_first_of and find_last_of in util::string_view.

    โœจ Enhancements

    • forward_index now knows how to tokenize a document down to a
      feature_vector, provided it was generated with a non-LIBSVM analyzer.
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Allow loading of an existing index where its corpus is no longer
      available.
    • Data is no longer shuffled in batch_train. Shuffling the data
      causes horrible access patterns in the postings file, so the data
      should instead shuffled before indexing.
    • util::array_views can now be constructed as empty.
    • util::multiway_merge has been made more generic. You can now specify
      ๐Ÿ”€ both the comparison function and merging criteria as parameters, which
      0๏ธโƒฃ default to operator< and operator==, respectively.
    • A simple utility classes io::mifstream and io::mofstream have been
      โž• added for places where a moveable ifstream or ofstream is desired
      ๐Ÿšš as a workaround for older standard libraries lacking these move
      constructors.
    • ๐Ÿ”ง The number of indexing threads can be controlled via the configuration
      0๏ธโƒฃ key indexer-num-threads (which defaults to the number of threads on
      the system), and the number of threads allowed to concurrently write to
      0๏ธโƒฃ disk can be controlled via indexer-max-writers (which defaults to 8).
