We are excited to announce ArrayFire v3.5.1! This release focuses on fixing bugs and improving performance. Here are the improvements we think are most important:
- We’ve improved element-wise operation performance for the CPU backend.
af::regions()function has been modified to leverage texture memory, improving its performance.
- Our JIT engine has been further optimized to boost performance.
- We’ve squashed a long standing bug in the CUDA backend responsible for breaking whenever the second, third, or fourth dimensions were large enough to exceed limits imposed by the CUDA runtime.
- The previous implementation of
af::mean()suffered from overflows when the summation of the values lied outside the range of the backing data type. New kernels for each of our backends have been written to prevent this issue.
af::canny()function has been patched with a workaround to avoid a bug in Apple’s OpenCL driver. We are working on releasing an upcoming patch to fix all examples that are similarly affected.

As always, we are working on improving the performance of all of our functions. This has been another exciting update to ArrayFire and we have great plans for the next release. Stay tuned!

While I was able to compiler ArrayFire V3.5 with the given CMakeLists.txt. It seems that the new CMakeLists.txt needs to be tested. It does not detects ASYNC option and correct Boost.compute. Unfortunately using the CMakeLists.txt of V3.5 for V3.5.1 does not work either.
