We are pleased to announce another patch release of the ArrayFire library. This release like all patch releases concentrates on bug fixes and minor performance improvements.
CUDA Version Updates
We have also improved the compatibility of the ArrayFire library to the latest CUDA toolkits and improved the build process and added additional build configurations so that you can customize the library for your specific application.
Better Linux Experience
We have updated the Debian and Ubuntu installers to reduce the binary size and reduced the setup process for the users. You can now download the ArrayFire library using the following commands on a Debian/Ubuntu system.
apt-key adv --fetch-key https://repo.arrayfire.com/GPG-PUB-KEY-ARRAYFIRE-2020.PUB echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://repo.arrayfire.com/debian all main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/arrayfire.listapt install arrayfire
Improved JIT Performance
With our collaboration with Facebook’s Flashlight project, we incorporated a new optimization to the ArrayFire library that could improve the performance of your application under certain circumstances. The optimization allows ArrayFire to remove redundant casting operations from a JIT tree. This potentially reduces the number of kernels ArrayFire has to launch for certain operations.
It has never been easier to use the ArrayFire library. With your support, we continue to push the limits of all the accelerators coming to the market. Is there a project where you think we can help?
