%!includeconf: CONFIG.t2t

----------------------------------------

==News for version 1.1==

Fixed a bug in the chd_pc algorithm and reorganized tests.

==News for version 1.0==

This is a bugfix only version, after which a revamp of the cmph code and
algorithms will be done.

----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.9==

- [The CHD algorithm chd.html], which is an algorithm that can be tuned to generate MPHFs that require approximately 2.07 bits per key to be stored. The algorithm outperforms [the BDZ algorithm bdz.html] and therefore is the fastest one available in the literature for sets that can be treated in internal memory.
- [The CHD_PH algorithm chd.html], which is an algorithm to generate PHFs with load factor up to //99 %//. It is actually the CHD algorithm without the ranking step. If we set the load factor to //81 %//, which is the maximum that can be obtained with [the BDZ algorithm bdz.html], the resulting functions can be stored in //1.40// bits per key. The space requirement increases with the load factor.
- All reported bugs and suggestions have been corrected and included as well.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.8==

- [An algorithm to generate MPHFs that require around 2.6 bits per key to be stored bdz.html], which is referred to as BDZ algorithm. The algorithm is the fastest one available in the literature for sets that can be treated in internal memory.
- [An algorithm to generate PHFs with range m = cn, for c > 1.22 bdz.html], which is referred to as BDZ_PH algorithm. It is actually the BDZ algorithm without the ranking step. The resulting functions can be stored in 1.95 bits per key for //c = 1.23// and are considerably faster than the MPHFs generated by the BDZ algorithm.
- An adapter to support a vector of struct as the source of keys has been added. 
- An API to support the ability of packing a perfect hash function into a preallocated contiguous memory space. The computation of a packed function is still faster and can be easily mmapped.
- The hash functions djb2, fnv and sdbm were removed because they do not use random seeds and therefore are not useful for MPHFs algorithms.
- All reported bugs and suggestions have been corrected and included as well.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.7==

- Added man pages and a pkgconfig file.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.6==

- [An algorithm to generate MPHFs that require less than 4 bits per key to be stored fch.html], which is referred to as FCH algorithm. The algorithm is only efficient for small sets.
- The FCH algorithm is integrated with [BRZ algorithm brz.html] so that you will be able to efficiently generate space-efficient MPHFs for sets in the order of billion keys.
- All reported bugs and suggestions have been corrected and included as well.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.5==

- A thread safe vector adapter has been added.
- [A new algorithm for sets in the order of billion of keys that requires approximately 8.1 bits per key to store the resulting MPHFs. brz.html] 
- All reported bugs and suggestions have been corrected and included as well.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.4==

- Vector Adapter has been added.
- An optimized version of bmz (bmz8) for small set of keys (at most 256 keys) has been added.
- All reported bugs and suggestions have been corrected and included as well.


----------------------------------------

==News for version 0.3==

- New heuristic added to the bmz algorithm permits to generate a mphf with only
  //24.80n + O(1)// bytes. The resulting function can be stored in //3.72n// bytes.
