\section{Changes in version 1.2-13 (2018-03-23, svn r3270)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item Faster \code{as(<matrix>, "sparseMatrix")} and coercion
	\code{"dgCMatrix"}, \code{"ngCMatrix"}, etc, via new direct C
	\code{matrix_to_Csparse()} which does \emph{not} go via
	\code{"dgeMatrix"}.  This also works for large matrices
	\code{m}, i.e., when \code{length(m) >= .Machine$integer.max}.

	Also provide low-level \R functions \code{.m2dgC()},
	\code{.m2lgC()}, and \code{.m2ngC()} for these.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{cbind(NULL,<Matrix>)} no longer return \code{NULL};
      analogously for \code{rbind()}, \code{rbind2()}, \code{cbind2()},
      fixing very long standing typo in the corresponsing \code{cbind2()}
      and \code{rbind2()} methods.

      \item The deprecation warning (once per session) for
      \code{cBind()} and \code{rBind()} finally works (fixing a simple thinko).

      \item \code{cbind()} and \code{rbind()} for largish sparse
      matrices no longer gives an error because of integer overflow
      (in the default case where \code{sparse} is not been specified
      hence is chosen by a \code{nnzero()} based heuristic).

      \item \code{.symDiagonal(5, 5:1)} and \code{.trDiagonal(x = 4:1)}
      now work as expected.

      \item \code{Sp[i]} now is much more efficient for large sparse
      matrices \code{Sp}, notably when the result is short.

      \item \code{<sparseVector>[ <negative integer> ]} now also gives
      the correct answer when the result is \dQuote{empty}, i.e., all
      zero or false.

      \item large \code{"dspMatrix"} and \code{"dtpMatrix"} objects can
      now be constructed via \code{new(*, Dim = *, x = *)} also when
      \code{length(x)} is larger than 2^31 (as the C internal
      validation method no longer suffers from integer overflow).

      \item More \sampl{PROTECT()}ing to be \dQuote{rather safe than
	sorry} thanks to Tomas Kalibera's check tools.
    }

\section{Changes in version 1.2-12 (2017-11-10, svn r3239)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{crossprod(x,y)} and \code{kronecker(x,y)} have become
      considerably more efficient for large \code{"indMatrix"} objects
      \code{x, y}, thanks to private nudging by Boris Vaillant.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item (R-forge Matrix bug #6185): \code{c < 0} now also works for
      derived sparse Matrices (which only \emph{contain} Matrix
      classes); via improving hidden \code{MatrixClass()}.   Part of
      such derived matrices only work in R >= 3.5.0.

      \item using \code{Authors@R} in \file{../DESCRIPTION} to list all
      contributors.

      \item \code{solve(-m)} no longer should use a cached Cholesky
      factorization (of \code{m}).
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-11 (2017-08-10, svn r3225)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item S4 method dispatch no longer emits ambiguity
      notes (by default) for everybody, apart from the package
      maintainer.  You can reactivate them by
      \code{options(Matrix.ambiguityNotes = TRUE)}
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{rankMatrix(<matrix of all 0>)} now gives zero for all
      methods, as it should be.

      \item no longer calling \code{length(NULL) <- <positive>} which
      has been deprecated in R-devel since July.

      \item \code{qr.coef(<sparseQR>, y)} now finally has correct (row)
      names (from pivot back permutation).

      \item \code{.trDiagonal()} utility is now exported.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-10 (2017-04-19, svn r3216)}{
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item quite a collection of new \code{PROTECT(.)}'s thanks to
      Tomas Kalibera's \sQuote{rprotect} analysis.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-9 (2017-03-08, svn r3211)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{"Ops"} between "table", "xtabs", and our matrices now work.
      \item \code{as(matrix(diag(3), 3, dimnames=rep(list(c("A","b","c")),2)),
 	"diagonalMatrix")@x} is no longer named.
      \item \code{norm(x, "2")} now works as well (and equivalently to \code{base::norm}).
      \item \code{sparseVector()} now also works without \code{x} argument.
      \item \code{c.sparseVector()} method for \code{c()} of
      sparseVectors (and available as regular function on purpose).
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{as(Diagonal(3), "denseMatrix")} no longer returns a
      non-dense \code{"ddiMatrix"}.

      \item \code{S[sel,] <- value} and similar no longer segfault, but
      give a \code{"not (yet?) supported"} error
      for sparse matrices \code{S} and logical \code{sel} when
      \code{sel} contains \code{NA}s.

      The same error (instead of a low-level one) is signalled for
      \emph{indexing} (with NA-containing logical \code{sel}), i.e.,
      \code{S[sel,]}.
      %% from in ../TODO :
      %% \item \code{S[sel,]}, \code{S[,sel] <- value} and similar now also work for
      %% sparse matrices \code{S} and logical \code{sel} when \code{sel} contains \code{NA}s.

      \item \code{which(x, arr.ind=TRUE, *)} (when \code{x} is a
      \code{"lMatrix"} or \code{"nMatrix"}) now works the same as
      \code{base::which}, obeying an optional \code{useNames} argument
      which defaults to \code{TRUE}.  Previously, the resulting
      two-column matrix typically had empty \code{dimnames}.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-8 (2017-01-16, svn r3201)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item 0-length matrix \code{"Ops"} (binary operations) are now
      compatible to R-devel (to be \R 3.4.0).
      \item C-API: \code{SuiteSparse_long} is now defined as
      \code{int64_t} on all platforms, and we now include (C99) \file{inttypes.h}
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{x[.] <- value} now also works for
      \code{"sparseVector"}'s, both as \code{x} and as \code{value}.
      \item \code{x[FALSE] <- value} now also works for \code{"sparseVector"}'s.

      \item \code{rep(x, *)} now works for \code{"sparseVector"}s and
      sparse and dense \code{"Matrix"}-classed matrices \code{x}.

      \item \code{solve(<sparse_LU>)} no gives an error in some cases of
      singular matrices, where before the C code accessed illegal memory locations.
    }
  }
}


\section{Changes in version 1.2-7.1 (2016-08-29, svn r3187)}{
  \itemize{ \item in C code, protect _POSIX_C_SOURCE by #ifdef __GLIBC__ }
}
\section{Changes in version 1.2-7 (2016-08-27, svn r3185)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{cBind()} and \code{rBind()} have been almost silently
      deprecated in \R \code{>= 3.2.0} and now give a warning,
      \dQuote{once per session} only.

      \item \code{bandSparse(*, k=k, *)} now returns matrices inheriting from
      \code{"triangularMatrix"} when obvious from the diagonal indices \code{k}.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{KhatriRao(X,Y)} now also works when \code{X} or
      \code{Y} is completely zero.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-6 (2016-04-27, svn r3175)}{
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item The 0-dim. Matrix multiplication fix in 1.2-5 did trigger
      wrong warnings in other diagonal matrix multiplications.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-5 (2016-04-14, svn r3170)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{isSymmetric(m)} now also works for \code{"indMatrix"} \code{m}.
      \item \code{isSymmetric(m)} is faster for large dense asymmetric matrices.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item Matrix multiplications (\code{A \%*\% B}) now work correctly
      when one of the matrices is diagonal and the other has a zero dimension.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-4 (2016-02-29, svn r3162)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{sparseMatrix()} gets new argument \code{triangular}
      and a smarter default for \code{dims} when \code{symmetric} or
      \code{triangular} is true.
      \item \code{as(<sparse>, "denseMatrix")} now works in more cases
      when \code{prod(dim(.))} is larger than \eqn{2^{31} - 1}.
      Hence, e.g., \code{!S} now works for much larger sparse matrices
      \code{S}.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item creating very large dense matrices, e.g., by
      \code{as(<sparseM.>, "matrix")} would segfault (in case it could
      allocate enough storage).
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-3 (2015-11-19, svn r3155)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{MatrixClass()} is exported now.
      \item More exports of semi-internal functions (for speed, named
      \code{".<foo>"}, i.e., inofficial API), such as \code{.solve.dgC.lu()}.
      \item more Korean translations
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item Packages \emph{linking} to \pkg{Matrix} (\code{LinkingTo:}
      in \file{DESCRIPTION}) now find
      \samp{alloca} properly defined in \file{Matrix.h} even for non-GNU
      compilation environments such as on Solaris or AIX.

      \item extended "n?CMatrix" classes (e.g., from \code{setClass(.,
	contains="ngCMatrix")}) now can be coerced via \code{as(.)} to
      \code{"d.CMatrix"}.

      \item The printing of largish sparse matrices is improved, notably
      in the case where columns are suppressed, via new \code{fitWidth =
	TRUE} option in \code{printSpMatrix2()}. %%% FIXME __ EXAMPLES __

      \item \code{cbind2()} and \code{rbind2()} no longer fail to
      determine \code{sparse} when it is unspecified and hence
      \code{NA}, fixing R-forge bug #6259.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-2 (2015-07-03, svn r3131)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item Explicitly import from \dQuote{base} packages such as \code{"stats"}.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item Our \code{colSums(x)}, \code{rowMeans(y)}, \dots, methods
      now \dQuote{keep names}, i.e., if the result is a numeric vector,
      and the matrix \code{x} has column or row names, these become the
      \code{names(.)} of the result, fixing R-forge bug #6018.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-1 (2015-05-30, svn r3127)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{"Matrix"} now has an \code{initialization()} method
      coercing 0-length dimnames components to \code{NULL} and other
      non-\code{NULL} dimnames to \code{character}.  Before, e.g.,
      numeric dimnames components partially worked, even though it has
      always been documented that non-\code{NULL} dimnames should be
      \code{character}.
      \item For \code{symmetricMatrix} objects which have symmetrical
      dimnames by definition, it is allowed to only set one half of the
      \code{dimnames} to save storage, e.g., \code{list(NULL, nms)} is
      \emph{semantically} equivalent to \code{list(nms, nms)}.

      \item \code{as.vector(<sparseVector>)} etc, now work, too.
      \item \code{lu(\emph{<sparseMatrix>})} now keeps \code{dimnames}.
      \item better \file{NEWS.Rd} (which pleases Kurt and \command{tidy} ;-)
    }
  }
  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{S[] <- T} and \code{S[] <- spV} now work (in more cases)
      for sparse matrices S, T and sparseVector \code{spV}.
      \item Huge dense matrix multiplication did lead to segfaults, see
      R-help, \dQuote{does segfault mean (always) a bug?}, May 5, 2015.
      Fixed by using C's Alloca() only in smallish cases.
      \item Optional arguments in \code{image()}, e.g., \code{main=
	<..>)} now also work for \code{lgCMatrix}, \code{nMatrix} etc;
      thanks to a 4.5 years old report by Mstislav Elagin.
      \item \code{dimnames(A) <- val} now resets the \code{factors} slot
      to empty, as the factorizations now keep dimnames more often.
      \item \code{crossprod(<matrix>, Diagonal(<n>))} works again (and
      these are tested more systematically).
      \item Matrix products (\code{\%*\%}, \code{crossprod}, and
      \code{tcrossprod}) for \code{"dtrMatrix"} are correct in all
      cases, including keeping dimnames.
      \item \code{Matrix(d)} (and other coercions to \code{"Matrix"})
      now correctly keeps \code{dimnames} also when \code{d} is a
      traditional \emph{diagonal} \code{"matrix"}.
    }
  }
}

\section{Changes in version 1.2-0 (2015-04-03, svn r3096)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item New \code{\%&\%} for \dQuote{boolean arithmetic} matrix product.
      \item New argument \code{boolArith = NA} in \code{crossprod()} and
      \code{tcrossprod()}.  \code{boolArith = TRUE} now forces boolean
      arithmetic, where \code{boolArith = FALSE} forces numeric one.

      Several of these products are more efficient thanks to new C
      functionality based on our new \code{chm_transpose_dense()}, and
      others based on \code{geMatrix_crossprod},
      \code{geMatrix_matrix_mm}, etc.

      \item Most dense matrix products, also for non-\code{dgeMatrix},
      including \code{"l..Matrix"} and \code{"n..Matrix"} ones are now
      directly handled by new \code{.Call()}s.

      \item \code{"dMatrix"} (numeric) and \code{"lMatrix"} (logical)
      matrices can now be coerced to \code{"nMatrix"} (non-zero pattern
      or \dQuote{boolean}) even when they contain \code{NA}s, which then
      become \code{TRUE}s.

      \item More thorough checking of \code{cbind2()} and
      \code{rbind2()} methods, notably as they are called from \code{cbind()}
      and \code{rbind()} from \R version 3.2.0 on.

      \code{rbind2(<dense>, <dense>)} is faster, being based on new C code.

      \item symmetric Matrices (i.e., inheriting from
      \code{"symmetricMatrix"}) are allowed to have \code{dimnames} of
      the form \code{list(NULL, <names>)} \emph{and} now print correctly
      and get correctly coerced to general matrices.

      \item \code{indMatrix} object (\dQuote{index matrices}) no longer
      need to be \dQuote{skinny}.

      \item \code{rsparseMatrix()} now accepts \code{rand.x = NULL} and
      then creates a random \emph{patter\bold{n}} matrix
      (\code{"nsparseMatrix"}).

      \item \code{anyDuplicatedT()} and \code{uniqTsparse()} low level
      utilities are exported now.

      \item Partial Korean translations of messages.
    }
  }
  \subsection{Deprecation}{
    \itemize{
      \item For \eqn{R \ge 3.2.0}, \code{cBind()} and \code{rBind()}
      are deprecated, as they are no longer needed since \code{cbind()}
      and \code{rbind()} do work automatically.
    }
  }

  \subsection{Bug Fixes}{
    \itemize{
      \item Fix some \code{rbind2()} methods.
      \item \code{t()} now transposes the dimnames even for symmetric
      matrices.
      \item \code{diag(M) <- val} did not always recycle \code{val} to
      full length, e.g., when \code{M} was a \code{"dtrMatrix"}.
      \item \code{crossprod(<indMatrix>)} was wrong in cases where the
      matrix had all-zero columns.
      \item Matrix products (\code{\%*\%}, \code{crossprod}, and
      \code{tcrossprod}) with one sparse and one dense argument now
      return \emph{numeric} (a \code{"dMatrix"}) when they should, i.e.,
      unless the new setting \code{boolArith = TRUE} is applied.

\section{Changes in version 1.1-5 (2015-01-18, svn r3037)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item More use of \code{anyNA()} (for speedup).
      \item Matrix products (\code{\%*\%}, \code{crossprod},
      \code{tcrossprod}) now behave compatibly to \R 3.2.0, i.e., more
      lenient in matching dimensions for matrix - vector products.
      \item \code{isTriangular()} gets new optional argument \code{upper = NA}.

      \item fix and speedup of coercions (\code{as(., .)}) from and to
      symmetric or triangular matrices.
      \item \code{invPerm()} coercion to integer
      \item \code{dimnames( solve(.,.) )} fix [r3036]
      \item \code{tril()} and \code{triu()} now return correct \code{uplo}.

\section{Changes in version 1.1-1 (2013-12-28)}{
  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item \code{image(.., xlim, ylim)}: nicer defaults %% ../R/dgTMatrix.R

  \subsection{New Features}{
    \itemize{
      \item New (efficient) \code{KhatriRao()} function by Michael Cysouw
      \item New \code{"indMatrix"} class of \dQuote{index matrices}, a
      generalization of \code{"pMatrix"}, the permutation matrices, many
      methods generalized from pMatrix to indMatrix.  All (initial)
      functionality contributed by Fabian Scheibl, Univ.\sspace{} Munich.
      \item Export and document \code{isDiagonal()} and
      \code{isTriangular()} as they are useful outside of \pkg{Matrix}.
      \item \code{rankMatrix(M, method="qr")} no longer needs
      \code{sval} which makes it considerably more useful for large
      sparse \code{M}.

      \item \code{determinant(<dpoMatrix>)} now uses \code{chol()}, and
      hence also an existing (\sQuote{cached}) Cholesky factor.
      \item 3 new \code{C -> R} utilities (including hidden \R function
      \code{.set.factors()} for caching also from \R, not just in C).
