Updated atlas packages that add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is a research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques providing portable performance. The atlas packages provide C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) implementation and routines from LAPACK (Linear Algebra PACKage).
The atlas packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.8.4, which adds a number of enhancements over the previous version. The atlas package now contains subpackages optimized for Linux on IBM System z architectures. (BZ#694459)
All users of atlas are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these enhancements.
