About igraph releases and other things
Release 0.9.0 of igraph’s C core has arrived, almost exactly one year after the
latest minor release, 0.8.0. This release brings several new features and
improvements, and also a complete switch from the old
system to a new one based on CMake. This results in faster
build times and the opportunity to use alternative build tools instead of
make; in particular, igraph now support
can also make use of a locally installed
compiler cache for even faster builds.
We gratefully acknowledge support from CZI for the development of igraph. In addition, we would like to thank everyone who reported issues, contributed features or fixes, or edited the documentation. igraph is an open-source project run by volunteers. As always, your contributions are very welcome!
Most people use igraph through its high-level interfaces for R, Python or Mathematica. A new release of the Python interface, based on 0.9.0, is expected to be released in a few days. The R and Mathematica interfaces already include some of the improvements, and will continue to integrate more.
