About igraph releases and other things

C/igraph 0.8.5

C/igraph 0.8.5, the fifth bugfix release of the 0.8 series, has arrived.

The sources can be obtained from the GitHub releases page.

This release includes bug fixes only. The changelog is below.


  • igraph_write_graph_pajek(): the function now always uses the platform-native line endings (CRLF on Windows, LF on Unix and macOS). Earlier versions tried to enforce Windows line endings, but this was error-prone, and since all recent versions of Pajek support both line endings, enforcing Windows line endings is not necessary any more.


  • Fixed several compilation issues with MINGW32/64, thanks to @jannick0
  • igraph_layout_davidson_harel() was not interruptible; now it is.
  • Added a missing memory cleanup call in igraph_i_cattribute_combine_vertices().
  • Fixed a few memory leaks in test cases.
