Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.5, Package name: gsl-2.5, Maintainer: david

The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a collection of routines for
numerical computing. The routines have been written from scratch in
C, and present a modern Applications Programming Interface (API) for C
programmers, allowing wrappers to be written for very high level
languages. The source code is distributed under the GNU General
Public License.

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.

Log message:
Updated gsl to 2.2.

* What is new in gsl-2.2:

   and added function gsl_linalg_pcholesky_invert

   triangular matrices

   eigensystems (Victor Zverovich)

   (reported by Pedro Donato)

** added multivariate Gaussian random distribution
   gsl_ran_multivariate_gaussian (Timothée Flutre)

** added functions to estimate the 1-norm reciprocal condition
   number for various matrix factorizations:
     * gsl_linalg_cholesky_rcond
     * gsl_linalg_QRPT_rcond

   count is about the same but the code is much simpler
   and easier to follow

   now control the linear solver used, the trust region
   updating strategy, and the scaling method. In addition,
   support has been added for the geodesic acceleration
   step (Transtrum 2011) which can speed up convergence
   on a wide class of problems.

No shlib major bump despite the big version bump.

* What is new in gsl-2.0:

** fixed bug #43258 for hypergeometric functions (Raymond Rogers)

** added L-curve analysis routines for linear Tikhonov regression

** add running statistics module

   iterative linear solver

   for Givens rotations

   api has changed; consequently the functions:
     gsl_sf_legendre_Plm_array
