lmfit-6.1, released 2dec15:
- docs:

- 'BUGS' section in man pages
- code cleanup:
- lmcurve_tyd in separate source file
lmfit-6.0, released 24nov15:
- API changes:
- a few more 'const' qualifiers in lmmin and lmcurve.
- new wrapper function lmcurve_tyd, for use in GROMACS
- code cleanup:
- further unify code layout
- use temporary variable for readability in lmcurve (suggested by T. Klauser)
lmfit-5.3, released 24nov15:
- autotools:

- detect if norm is not finite, new outcome code 12 = "found nan"
- print parameters before invoking callback functiion
- docs:
- correct typo in lmmin(3)
- code cleanup:
- uniform code layout, starting from clang-format
- correct and improve comments, especially in qrfac

lmfit-5.2, released 23oct14:
- bug fix:
- correct man page (5.0 API change)
- acceleration(?):
- revert to just one malloc for all workspaces, now based on a char array
lmfit-5.1, released 29aug13:
- bug fix:
- FILE** initialization from &stdout was not standard compliant
(report by Jan Krieger, cf;
now FILE* initialized to NULL
- code cleanup:
- better wrapper for "extern C" declaration
lmfit-5.0, released 9aug13:
- API changes:
- removed callback function for printout
- removed control structure for printout; some par's go to lm_control_struct
- pivoting can no longer be switched off
- from now on, addition of par's to lm_control_struct is not an API change
- bug fix:
- correct memory leak introduced by reversal of mallock trick
- restore default scale_diag=1
- monitoring:
- improved text messages ("success" -> "converged", we should not say more)
- demo: reworked examples
- new example nonlin1: solution of 2 nonlinear equations in 2 variables
- example surface1 improved and included in man page lmmin(3)
- otherwise testsuite started as new project fittest
- packaging: configure now supports pkg-config
lmfit-4.0, released 16jul13:
- binary library renamed: lmmin -> lmfit
- API changes:
- lmcurve.h no longer depends on lmmin.h, but only on new lmstruct.h
- low-level API lmdif is removed (code integrated in lmmin)
- lmcurve_fit -> lmcurve
- new control parameter 'pivot' (default: pivoting is used, as before)
- new structure lm_princon_struct, generalizing printflags
- in consequence thereof, new parameter lists for lmcurve and lmmin
- code cleanup:
- ensure strict C90 compliance: no C++ comments; replace non-standard
struct assignement (reported by Elio Mazzocca, using LCC)
- revert malloc trick of release 3.4 (readability is more important)
- source code comment blocks moved around, to reduce duplications
- build scripts cleanup:
- demo programs are no longer installed to $bindir
- cleaned up, and inserted comments
- documentation:
- new web location:
- new entry page (dokuwiki) instead of man page
- man page split and largely rewritten: lmcurve(3), lmmin(3)
lmfit-3.5, released 3feb13:
- changed overall license to FreeBSD to facilitate inclusion in Linux
distributions (request by M. Hroncok)
- directory doc renamed man
lmfit-3.4, released 21jan13:
- only one malloc call to allocate all arrays (proposal by F. Polchow)
- liblmmin_la_LDFLAGS += -lm (required by Ubuntu, report by J. M. Agosta)
- there is now an alternative ruby binding, using inline instead of swig
(contribution by I. Drozdov)
- long message for degenerate case now suggests increasing epsilon
(suggestion by Nghia Ho)
lmfit-3.3, released 12sep12:
- moved "int" declarations to top of lm_printout_std() and lmmin()
(required by Visual Studio 2005: bug report M. Beek)
- corrected typo 0.55 -> 0.5 (bug reports M. Kardas and D. Pescia)
- man pages now produced by make; finally got rid of dmake
- untabified code (hint by W. Pimenta)
lmfit-3.2, released 28mar10 (preview 27mar10):
- shared library is given correct version number (set in
- man page lmfit(3) is copied by dmake to lmmin(3) and lmcurve_fit(3)
lmfit-3.1, released 12mar10:
- debian directory not part of tgz distribution
- temporarily removed lmmin.3 (was symlink -> lmfit.3)
lmfit-3.0, released 2mar10 (preview 27feb10):
- for parameter close to zero, change step width for calculation of jabobian
- outer iteration counter starting at zero (C style)
- replace BUG by LMFIT_DEBUG_MESSAGES and .._MATRIX to allow control by -D
- remove redundant calculation by exchanging workspaces and lm_lmpar output
- eliminate unncessary wa1 = -wa1 computation
- avoid passing wa3 to wa1, choose better names for work arrays in lm_par
- migrate documentation from brain-damaged asciidoc to pod
- rewrote interface documentation
- API changes:
-- eliminate lm_initialize_control, provide defaults for float and double
-- separate limits and status records
-- separate generic minimization and one-dimensional curve fitting
-- simplify the latter
- replace curve-fitting demo
- provide surface-fitting demo (correspondence M. Rudolphi)
- provide vector minimization demos
- test for fnorm<=LM_DWARF, renumbered info values 0, 10, 11
lmfit-2.6, released 29sep09:

- allow printout=NULL (suggestion J. Lodewyck)
- improve infmsg (correspondence B. McHoull)
