Vc v1.3.0 Release NotesRelease Date: 2016-10-27 // about 5 years ago
Vc is an open source library to ease explicit vectorization of C++ code. It has an intuitive API and provides portability between different compilers and compiler versions as well as portability between different vector instruction sets.
↪ Vc 1.3.0 contains API cleanups, bug fixes, important compiler-specific optimizations & workarounds, and finally supports MSVC again
👉 User Changelog
- 👀 64-bit MS VisualStudio 2015 support. (See #119 for some of the gory details.)
- 👍 ICC 17 support (#143).
- 👍 GCC 6 support (#125).
- ↪ Workarounds for bad ICC code-gen (#135). Now Vc not only works correctly when compiled with ICC, but also performs as good (or better) as GCC and Clang.
- Safer and more restrictive subscripting on
Mask. There is a minor source compatibility break involved, since
Vector::operatorreturned lvalue references before Vc 1.3 and returns a smart reference (rvalue) now. This change reduces the chance of miscompilation & internal compiler errors and reduces the reliance on non-standard C++ extensions.
- 👌 Support for
x32compilation (like x86_64 but with 32-bit pointers).
- ➕ Added scatter interface to
SimdArray(thanks to Kay Jahnke).
simd_castproperly works with ADL now (i.e. you don't have to write fully qualified
simd_for_each_n(thanks to Hartmut Kaiser).
