About igraph releases and other things

August 18, 2006

Release time at last! There are many new things in igraph 0.2, the most important ones:

  • reading writing Pajek and GraphML formats with attributes (not all Pajek and GraphML files are supported, see documentation for details)
  • iterators totally rewritten, it is much faster and cleaner now
  • the RANDEDU fast motif search algorithm is implemented
  • many new graph generators, both games and regular graphs
  • many new structural properties: transitivity, reciprocity, etc.
  • graph operators: union, intersection, difference, structural holes, etc.
  • conversion between directed and undirected graphs
  • new layout algorithms for trees and large graphs, 3D layouts

and many more.

Although this release was somewhat tested on Linux, MS Windows, Mac OSX, Solaris 8 and FreeBSD, no heavy testing was done, so it might contain bugs, and we kindly ask you to send bug reports to make igraph better.
