ATLAS is an approach for the automatic generation and optimization of
numerical software. Currently ATLAS supplies optimized versions for the
complete set of linear algebra kernels known as the Basic Linear Algebra
Subroutines (BLAS), and a subset of the linear algebra routines in the
LAPACK library.
The libraries in this package are built without any processor extension
instructions, and should run on all processors of this general
architecture, albeit less than optimally.
If you want to create an ATLAS packaged optimized for your processor, see the
section: "Building Optimized Atlas Packages on your ARCH" in README.Debian

[ Andreas Beckmann ]
* libatlas-base-dev.preinst: Cleanup obsolete alternatives dating back to
lenny.  (Closes: #776089)

atlas (3.10.2-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add missing files in archdef for mips.
More precisely, add missing GENERIC32/lapack/gcc/atlas_{c,z}GetNB_geqrf.h in
debian/archdef/mips/GENERIC32.tar.bz2. The absence of these files was making
the compilation insanely long on some buildds, causing FTBFS by timeout.
(Closes: #770379)

atlas (3.10.2-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add archdef for arm64. Drastically diminishes build time, and avoids random
FTBFS. (Closes: #763805)
* Add ppc64el support.
- New patches (thanks, Michael Normand et al).
+ ppc64el-abiv2.patch
+ ppc64el-ifdef-files-with-lvx.patch
+ ppc64el-new-archdef-name.patch
- debian/archdefs/ppc64el/GENERIC64LE.tar.bz2: add archdefs/timings.
- debian/archdefs/README: updated accordingly.
Thanks to Mauricio Faria de Oliveira for putting this together.
(Closes: #766695)
* Fix paths in debian/README.source.

atlas (3.10.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* libatlas3-base: add dependency on libblas-common.
The goal is to make BLAS implementations multi-arch safe by preventing the
co-installability of, say, libblas3:amd64 and libatlas3-base:i386. See
* Drop obsolete note in libatlas3-base package description about former
optimized packages.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6, no changes needed.

atlas (3.10.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* shared_libraries.diff: no longer include ATLAS-specific symbols in and Rather dynamically link those libraries with This makes it possible to use from ATLAS with a coming from somewhere else. Thanks to Guillem Jover for
suggesting this solution. (Closes: #576972)
* Revert back to a higher priority in the LAPACK alternatives.
The priority had been lowered in 3.8.4-8 in order to minimize the incidence
of #576972, so this is no longer needed.

* Remove Sylvestre Ledru from Uploaders. Thanks Sylvestre for your work!
* Remove architectural defaults for obsolete ia64 arch.
* Drop obsolete code in maintainer scripts to deal with the transitions => and =>
* Improvement to debian/ save CVS download time.
* Remove duplicate changelog in libatlas-doc.

atlas (3.10.1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* libatlas3gf-base: update long description to suppress lintian warning.
* Remove architectural defaults for obsolete s390 arch.
* Use the new GENERIC arch name for powerpc, instead of POWER3.
Hopefully that will fix the FTBFS on powerpc.
