Past news and events
2016-04-28: The license for FLINT (repository and subsequent releases) is changed to LGPL v2.1+ after consultation with our contributors this month. Thanks to everyone involved in the license change.
2015-08-12: FLINT 2.5.2 is released!
This fixes a number of build issues for various platforms.
2015-08-12: FLINT 2.5.1 is released!
This fixes a number of build issues for various platforms, including OSX and Windows MSVC.
2015-08-07: FLINT 2.5 is released!
2015-02-17: FLINT 2.4.5 is released. This fixed a severe bug in flint's heuristic GCD which would affect polynomial GCD over ZZ and QQ where one of the inputs had a very small linear factor. The bug was only triggered in extremely rare situations. We strongly recommend updating.
2014-09-06: Alex Best completes his Google Summer of Code project developing fast Hermite and Smith normal form code, including the Pernet-Stein algorithm.
2014-09-06: Abhinav Baid completes his Google Summer of Code project implementing fast LLL, including the LLL, L^2, ULLL and Storjohann algorithms.
2014-06-19: FLINT 2.4.4 is released. This fixed a severe bug in flint's primality code (n_is_prime() affecting n_factor()). We strongly recommend updating as all versions of flint since 1.1 are affected.
