SHOGUN Release version 1.1.0 (libshogun 11.0, data 0.3, parameter 0)
This release contains several enhancements, cleanups and bugfixes:

  • Features:
    • New dimensionality reduction algorithms: Diffusion Maps, Kernel Locally Linear Embedding, Kernel Local Tangent Space Alignment, Linear Local Tangent Space Alignment, Neighborhood Preserving embedding, Locality Preserving Projections.
    • Various performance improvements for dimensionality reduction methods (BLAS, alignment formulation of the LLE, ..)
    • Automatical k determination mode for Locally Linear Embedding dimension reduction method based on reconstruction error.
    • ARPACK and SUPERLU integration.
    • Introduce the concept of Converters that can embed (arbitrary) feature types into different feature types.
    • LibSVM is now pthread-parallelized.
    • Create modshogun.dll for csharp.
    • Various new c# examples (thanks Daniel Korn and Ori Cohen).
    • Dimensionality reduction examples application is introduced
  • Bugfixes:
    • Octave_static and octave_modular examples fix.
    • Memory leak in custom kernel is now eliminated (thanks Madeleine Seeland for reporting).
    • Fix for linear machine set_w method (thanks Brian Cheung for reporting).
    • DotFeatures fix for assert bug.
    • FibonacciHeap memory leak fix.
    • Fix for Java modular interface typemapping bug.
    • Fix errors uncovered by LLVM / clang++.
    • Fix for configure on Darwin-x86_64 (thanks Peter Romov for patch).
    • Improve lua / ruby detection.
    • Fix configure / compilation under osx and cygwin for variuos interfaces.
  • Cleanup and API Changes:
    • Most of the inline functions have been (re)moved to the corresponding .cpp file
    • Libshogun is now being compiled with sse support for math (if available) but interfaces are now being compiled with -O0 key which drastically reduces compilation time
