Item posted by Peter Simons <simons> on Sat 08 Sep 2012 12:48:49 PM UTC.

AX_BLAS has been extended to detect the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL). See <> for further details.

Several bugs and inconsistencies in AX_TRY_RUN_JAVA, AX_PROG_JAVA_WORKS, AX_CHECK_CLASS, and AX_PROG_JAVA have been fixed. See <> for further details.

AX_INCLUDE_STRCASECMP has been added. The macro detects which header file defines the strcasecmp() function. See <> for further details.

AX_LIB_ORACLE_OCCI has been added. The macro detects the availability of the Oracle OCCI API of particular version or newer. Further details can be found at <>.

AX_CHECK_POSTGRES_DB has been substantially re-written. The default behavior is unchanged, but there are two new (optional) arguments ACTION-IF-FOUND and ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND. See <> for further details.

AX_CXX_RVALUE_REFERENCES has been added. See <> for further details.

AX_BLAS has been extended to support for the (free-software, BSD-licensed) OpenBLAS library, a descendant of GotoBLAS <>. See <> for further details.

The reliability of AX_BOOST_SYSTEM and AX_BOOST_FILESYSTEM has been improved. See <> for further details.

The new entry AX_ZONEINFO has been added. Further details are available at <>.

AX_CHECK_ZLIB has been updated significantly:

 - The behavior was changed so that the macro proceeds to compile and link tests even if zlib.h was not found in the "usual locations".

 - The macro interface has been extend to the typical ([action-if-found], [action-if-not-found])-style.

 - Previous versions used to search zlib in "usual locations" only if --with-zlib was provided [by user]. Now, the macro performs that search in default mode, too.

See <> for further details.

The new macro AX_PRINTF_SIZE_T has been added which can be used to check for the appropriate printf() format string modifier to use with a size_t argument. See <> for further details.

A bug has been fixed in the Intel MKL library test of AX_BLAS. See <> for further details.

AX_BOOST_SERIALIZATION has been improved to support for MacOS/BSD sed. Further details can be found at <>.
