PrimeForm/GW, version 1.1
- Hi folks,
Version 1.1 of PrimeForm/GW has just been released. Binaries for Win32
and for BeOS R5 x86 may be downloaded from
(Linux users will have to build from source I'm afraid, also available
at that link). Many users will already have seen most of the new
features 1.1 has over 1.0, because of the regular
development previews. The new official release includes documentation
and tutorials. When we put the package together, we were surprised just
how much had gone in over the past six months.
Here's just *some* of the items added from version 1.0 (deep breath!)
accelerated digit-reading, Fibonacci and Lucas 'full' functions,
'combined' testing mode, composite verification, restarting on abnormal
termination, extended BLS, ini files added, accelerated factorial-based
functions. new gcd function, 'ABC' script files, 'nice' flag, a new
prime sieve, ctrl-C clean shutdown, file handling improvements,
factoring cutoffs, 42 bit c in k.2^n+-c code, decimal output, factor
limit by percentage, new log file...
...and many many more - and that doesn't include the bug fixes :)
Meanwhile, development continues... exciting things are afoot for
v1.2... or will it be v2.0?
Special thanks go to Micha Fleuren for writing the documentation, and
Jim Fougeron for his continued maintenance of the Windows version.
