Changes for version 2.00
- Tue Apr 12 2016
- The module now returns the sorting network as an object. This is obviously a major change; please see the documentation for reassuring examples. The OO basis is Moose, plus Moose::Exporter for a couple of convenience functions. The function-heavy Version 1.30 will remain on CPAN for at least another year in the mean time.
- The collection of 'best' networks has been greatly added to, thanks to the efforts of Morwenn. These networks now reside in their own child module, Algorithm::Networksort::Best. It could be argued that the module should be named Algorithm::Networksort::Optimal, but 'optimal' has seven letters and 'best' has four, so 'best' wins.
- Doug Hoyte astonishingly provided code for another three algorithms: odd-even merge, odd-even transposition, and balanced.
- The example scripts in eg/ have been updated and in some cases improved.
- Found untested cases (formats in particular) and added them to the tests.
- SVG output is massively improved. The graphing example is now HTML5 instead of XML, beginning circles now cover their line instead of vice versa, background color is now supported, and the ids of graph elements now have a random component in them so as not to confuse the parser if more than one graph is on the page (this is one that bit me).
