About igraph releases and other things

December 19, 2006

This is a new major release, it contains many new things: geometric random graphs, local transitivity, etc.

`igraph_maxdegree`

added, calculates the maximum degree in the graph`igraph_grg_game`

, geometric random graphs`igraph_density`

, graph density calculation- push-relabel maximum flow algorithm added,
`igraph_maxflow_value`

- minimum cut functions added based on maximum flow:
`igraph_st_mincut_value`

,`igraph_mincut_value`

, the Stoer-Wagner algorithm is implemented for undirected graphs - vertex connectivity functions, usually based on maximum flow:
`igraph_st_vertex_connectivity`

,`igraph_vertex_connectivity`

- edge connectivity functions, usually based on maximum flow:
`igraph_st_edge_connectivity`

,`igraph_edge_connectivity`

- other functions based on maximum flow:
`igraph_edge_disjoint_paths`

,`igraph_vertex_disjoint_paths`

,`igraph_adhesion`

,`igraph_cohesion`

- dimacs file format added
`igraph_to_directed`

handles attributes- igraph_constraint calculation corrected, it handles weighted graphs
- spinglass-based community structure detection, the Joerg Reichardt --
Stefan Bornholdt algorithm added:
`igraph_spinglass_community`

,`igraph_spinglass_my_community`

`igraph_extended_chordal_ring`

, it creates extended chordal rings`no`

argument added to`igraph_clusters`

, it is possible to calculate the number of clusters without calculating the clusters themselves- minimum spanning tree functions keep attributes now and also the direction of the edges is kept in directed graphs
- there are separate functions to calculate different types of transitivity now
`igraph_delete_vertices`

rewritten to allocate less memory for the new graph- neighborhood related functions added:
`igraph_neighborhood`

,`igraph_neighborhood_size`

,`igraph_neighborhood_graphs`

- two new games added based on different node types:
`igraph_preference_game`

and`igraph_asymmetric_preference_game`

- Laplacian of a graph can be calculated by the
`igraph_laplacian`

function

- attribute handling bug when deleting edges corrected
- GraphML escaping and NaN handling corrected
- a bug in Erdos-Renyi graph generation corrected: it had problems with generating large directed graphs
- bug in constraint calculation corrected, it works well now
- fixed memory leaks in
`igraph_read_graph_graphml`

- error handling bug corrected in
`igraph_read_graph_graphml`

- bug corrected in R version of
`graph.laplacian`

when normalized Laplacian is requested - memory leak corrected in
`get.all.shortest.paths`

in the R package
