MACROS 5.0 Release

DATADVANCE development team is pleased to announce the release of MACROS 5.0, a new stable version of the MACROS library and featured plug-ins.

This release features the following major improvements:

  • You can now set the maximum number of parallel threads for MACROS using its options. This makes parallelization easier to configure because it no longer requires changing the OMP_NUM_THREADS system environment variable.
  • Extended sample point weighting support: point weights are now supported by most approximation techniques. Previously this feature was available only if using the incomplete Tensor Approximation (iTA) technique.

MACROS 5.0 also contains smaller improvements and a number of bugfixes. For full details you can refer to the release changelog, or contact us to receive more information and MACROS updates!
