Fast Artificial Neural Network Library is a free open source neural network library, which implements multilayer artificial neural networks in C with support for both fully connected and sparsely connected networks. Cross-platform execution in both fixed and floating point are supported. It includes a framework for easy handling of training data sets. It is easy to use, versatile, well documented, and fast. A Python binding is available, and bindings for PHP, C++, .NET, Delphi, Octave, Ruby, Pure Data and Mathematica can be downloaded from FANN's homepage. This package contains the shared libraries.

    2014-09-19 - Christian Kastner <> libfann (2.1.0~beta+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Use +dfsg modifier in version instead of the semantically incorrect ~dfsg. This is just a rename, there were no actual changes to the upstream source * Migrate git repo to Debian-Science at * debian/control: - Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed) - Update Vcs-* URLs to point to new location * debian/rules: - Add override for dh_install and use --fail-missing - Drop the custom code for running Python tests and use Pybuild for that stage, too * debian/tests: - python-build + Allow selection of Python interpreter to use

    2014-04-24 - Christian Kastner <> libfann (2.1.0~beta~dfsg-10) unstable; urgency=low * debian/control: - Add Build-Depends for dh-autoreconf - Drop Build-Depends for autotools-dev * debian/rules: - Switch from autotools-dev to dh-autoreconf. Closes: #744606 - Call dh_auto_build for python-pyfann twice, because distutils runs build_py before build_ext, but build_py relies on output from build_ext (from SWIG), and this order cannot be changed. This is a known issue, see - Run "build" autopkgtest after build - Run "python-build" autopkgtest after build, for all supported Python versions - Fix setting of DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND * debian/tests: - build + Rewrite to make use of $ADTTMP - python-build + Create (runs one of the example scripts) * debian/copyright: - Updates for my changes to debian/test/* * debian/patches (refreshed): - 0002-Link-against-libm Properly extend autotools setup for libm instead of using a dirty hack - 0006-Include-fann_cpp.h-in-dev-package Don't pointlessly modify

    2014-03-28 - Christian Kastner <> libfann (2.1.0~beta~dfsg-9) unstable; urgency=low * debian/rules: - Convert to dh syntax - Convert Python build helper from deprecated python-support to dh_python2 - In addition to the default "makefile" build system, use the "pybuild" build system for building the Python extension. This way we no longer have to iterate over the supported Python versions. - Fix FTBFS by cleaning SWIG-generated file. Closes: #643187 - Use DEB_CFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND instead of CFLAGS * debian/control: - Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes needed) - Bump debhelper Build-Depends to (>= 9) - Add Multi-Arch: same to libfann2, libfann-dev, libfann-dbg - Add Build-Depends for dh-python - Add X-Python-Version with >= 2.6, thereby implicitly dropping support for Python 2.5 (it used to be supported in the now removed debian/pyversions). - Add XS-Testsuite for autopkgtest - Drop Build-Depends for python-support - Move naturaldocs to Build-Depends-Indep - Remove obsolete DM-Upload-Allowed field * debian/compat: - Bump debhelper compatibility level to 9 * debian/libfann-dev.install debian/libfann2.install: - Change paths from usr/lib/ to usr/lib/*/ (for mutli-arch triplets) * debian/copyright: - Update to machine-readable format v1.0 - Update Source: link - Add comment to debian/copyright explaining how DFSG-cleaning was performed * debian/test/* - Add autpkgtest for successful build & run against libfann. Taken from Ubuntu. Thanks, Vibhav Pant. Closes: #702423 * debian/patches (added): - 0007-Do-not-call-swig-unconditionally The SWIG interface was being built on every invocation of, even during a mere install * debian/source/lintian-overrides: - Added override for debian-watch-may-check-gpg-signature * debian/watch: - Don't try to pattern-match beta, just match beta - Upstream release filename has changed * debian/gbp.conf - Created (package is based on dfsg branch, not upstream)
