LIBLINEAR is a library for learning linear classifiers for large scale applications. It supports Support Vector Machines (SVM) with L2 and L1 loss, logistic regression, multi class classification and also Linear Programming Machines (L1-regularized SVMs). Its computational complexity scales linearly with the number of training examples making it one of the fastest SVM solvers around. This package contains the header files and static libraries.

    2014-08-26 - Christian Kastner <> liblinear (1.8+dfsg-4) unstable; urgency=medium * Migrate repo to Debian-Science at * debian/control: - Update Vcs-* URLs to point to new location - Add XS-Testsuite for autopkgtest - python-liblinear is arch:all, not arch:any. Thanks, Vincent Cheng * debian/tests/*: - Define an autopkgtest that runs the examples from the documentation * debian/patches (updated): - 0006-Improve-option-parsing Fix wrong function call in float parsing (for epsilon value, etc.). As a result of copy-pasta, strtol() was being used where strtof() was needed.

    2014-07-26 - Christian Kastner <> liblinear (1.8+dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=low * debian/symbols: - Declare an empty virtual destructor as optional symbol; gcc-4.9 no longer generates it. Fixes a FTBFS. Closes: #753227 * debian/control: - Add Multi-Arch fields to packages where necessary - Add Pre-Depends for package liblinear1 * debian/rules: - Install to multi-arch destinations using DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH * debian/*.install: - Update paths as a consequence of the new install target and multi-arch-ification * debian/patches (updated): - 0001-Properly-build-shared-and-static-libraries-programs Add an install target to upstream's Makefile, with configurable destinations for libraries and executables
