New features

- New methods `.last/_mut()` for arrays and array views by [@jturner314]


Bug fixes

- Fix `as_slice_memory_order_mut()` so that it never changes strides (the
  memory layout) of the array when called.

  - `.push(axis, array)`, `.append(axis, array)`

  `stack`, `concatenate` and `.select()` now support all `Clone`-able elements
  as a result.

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/932 <br>

- New reshaping method `.to_shape(...)`, called with new shape and optional
  ordering parameter, this is the first improvement for reshaping in terms of
  added features and increased consistency, with more to come. By [@bluss].


- `Array` now implements a by-value iterator, by [@bluss].

Bug fixes

- Fix panic in creation of `.windows()` producer from negative stride array by


Other changes

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/955 <br>

Version 0.15.0 (2021-03-25)

New features

- Support inserting new axes while slicing by [@jturner314]. This is an example:

  let view = arr.slice(s![.., -1, 2..;-1, NewAxis]);


- Support two-sided broadcasting in arithmetic operations with arrays by [@SparrowLii]

  This now allows, for example, addition of a 3 x 1 with a 1 x 3 array; the
  operands are in this case broadcast to 3 x 3 which is the shape of the result.

  Note that this means that a new trait bound is required in some places when
  mixing dimensionality types of arrays in arithmetic operations.


- Support for compiling ndarray as `no_std` (using core and alloc) by
  [@xd009642] and [@bluss]

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/861 <br>

- New methods `.cell_view()` and `ArrayViewMut::into_cell_view` that enable
  new ways of working with array elements as if they were in Cells - setting
  elements through shared views and broadcast views, by [@bluss].


- New methods `slice_each_axis/_mut/_inplace` that make it easier to slice
  a dynamic number of axes in some situations, by [@jturner314]


- New method `a.assign_to(b)` with the inverse argument order compared to the
  existing `b.assign(a)` and some extra features like assigning into
  uninitialized arrays, By [@bluss].


- New methods `.std()` and `.var()` for standard deviation and variance by



- Ndarray can now correctly determine that arrays can be contiguous, even if
  they have negative strides, by [@SparrowLii]

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/885 <br>

- Improvements to `map_inplace` by [@jturner314]


- `.into_dimensionality` performance was improved for the `IxDyn` to `IxDyn`
  case by [@bluss]


- Improved performance for scalar + &array and &array + scalar operations by


API changes

- New constructors `Array::from_iter` and `Array::from_vec` by [@bluss].
  No new functionality, just that these constructors are available without trait


- `NdProducer::raw_dim` is now a documented method by [@jturner314]


- `AxisDescription` is now a struct with field names, not a tuple struct by
  [@jturner314]. Its accessor methods are now deprecated.


- Methods for array comparison `abs_diff_eq` and `relative_eq` are now
  exposed as inherent methods too (no trait import needed), still under the approx
  feature flag by [@bluss]


- Changes to the slicing-related types and macro by [@jturner314] and [@bluss]:

  - Remove the `Dimension::SliceArg` associated type, and add a new `SliceArg`
    trait for this purpose.
  - Change the return type of the `s![]` macro to an owned `SliceInfo` rather
    than a reference.
  - Replace the `SliceOrIndex` enum with `SliceInfoElem`, which has an
    additional `NewAxis` variant and does not have a `step_by` method.
  - Change the type parameters of `SliceInfo` in order to support the `NewAxis`
    functionality and remove some tricky `unsafe` code.
  - Mark the `SliceInfo::new` method as `unsafe`. The new implementations of
    `TryFrom` can be used as a safe alternative.
  - Remove the `AsRef<SliceInfo<[SliceOrIndex], D>> for SliceInfo<T, D>`
    implementation. Add the similar `From<&'a SliceInfo<T, Din, Dout>> for
    SliceInfo<&'a [SliceInfoElem], Din, Dout>` conversion as an alternative.
  - Change the *expr* `;` *step* case in the `s![]` macro to error at compile
    time if an unsupported type for *expr* is used, instead of panicking at

- Renamed `Zip` methods by [@bluss] and [@SparrowLii]:

  - `apply` -> `for_each` 
  - `apply_collect` -> `map_collect`
  - `apply_collect_into` -> `map_collect_into`
  - (`par_` prefixed methods renamed accordingly)

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/894 <br>
  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/904 <br>

- Deprecate `Array::uninitialized` and revamped its replacement by [@bluss]

  Please use new new `Array::uninit` which is based on `MaybeUninit` (renamed
  from `Array::maybe_uninit`, the old name is also deprecated).

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/902 <br>

- Renamed methods (old names are now deprecated) by [@bluss] and [@jturner314]

  - `genrows/_mut` -> `rows/_mut`
  - `gencolumns/_mut` -> `columns/_mut`
  - `stack_new_axis` -> `stack` (the new name already existed)
  - `visit` -> `for_each`

- Fix bug in layout computation that broke parallel collect to f-order
  array in some circumstances by [@bluss]

  `indices.as_ref()` always return the same value when called multiple times,
  by [@bluss] and [@jturner314]


Other changes

- It was changed how we integrate with BLAS and `blas-src`. Users of BLAS need
  to read the README for the updated instructions. Ndarray itself no longer
  has public dependency on `blas-src`. Changes by [@bluss].

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/891 <br>

- Various improvements to tests and CI by [@jturner314]

  https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/934 <br>

Version 0.14.0 (2020-11-28)

New features

- `Zip::apply_collect` and `Zip::par_apply_collect` now support all
  elements (not just `Copy` elements) by [@bluss]

- New function `stack` by [@andrei-papou]  


- Handle inhomogeneous shape inputs better in Zip, in practice: guess better whether
  to prefer c- or f-order for the inner loop by [@bluss]

- Improve code sharing in some commonly used code by [@bluss]

API changes

- The **old function** `stack` has been renamed to `concatenate`.
  A new function `stack` with numpy-like semantics have taken its place.
  Old usages of `stack` should change to use `concatenate`.
  `concatenate` produces an array with the same number of axes as the inputs.  
  `stack` produces an array that has one more axis than the inputs.

  This change was unfortunately done without a deprecation period, due to the long period between releases.


- Enum ErrorKind is now properly non-exhaustive and has lost its old placeholder invalid variant. By [@Zuse64]

- Remove deprecated items:

  - RcArray (deprecated alias for ArcArray)
  - Removed `subview_inplace` use `collapse_axis`
  - Removed `subview_mut` use `index_axis_mut`
  - Removed `into_subview` use `index_axis_move`
  - Removed `subview` use `index_axis`
  - Removed `slice_inplace` use `slice_collapse`

- Undeprecated `remove_axis` because its replacement is hard to find out on your own.

- Update public external dependencies to new versions by [@Eijebong] and [@bluss]

  - num-complex 0.3
  - approx 0.4 (optional)
  - blas-src 0.6.1 and openblas-src 0.9.0 (optional)

    the stride is zero or the array element type is zero-sized by @bluss.
  - Improve documentation by @jturner314, @bluss, and @paulkernfeld.
  - Improve element iterators with implementations of `Iterator::rfold`.

Version 0.12.0 (2018-09-01)

  - Add `var_axis` method for computing variance by @LukeMathWalker.
  - Add `map_mut` and `map_axis_mut` methods (mutable variants of `map` and `map_axis`) by @LukeMathWalker.
  - Add support for 128-bit integer scalars (`i128` and `u128`).
  - Add support for slicing with inclusive ranges (`start..=end` and `..=end`).
  - Relax constraint on closure from `Fn` to `FnMut` for `mapv`, `mapv_into`, `map_inplace` and `mapv_inplace`.
  - Implement `TrustedIterator` for `IterMut`.
  - Bump `num-traits` and `num-complex` to version `0.2`.
  - Bump `blas-src` to version `0.2`.
  - Bump minimum required Rust version to 1.27.
  - Additional contributors to this release: @ExpHP, @jturner314, @alexbool, @messense, @danmack, @nbro

Version 0.11.2 (2018-03-21)

  - New documentation; @jturner314 has written a large “ndarray for NumPy users”
    document, which we include in rustdoc.
    [Read it here]https://docs.rs/ndarray/0.11/ndarray/doc/ndarray_for_numpy_users/
    a useful quick guide for any user, and in particular if you are familiar
    with numpy.
  - Add `ArcArray`. `RcArray` has become `ArcArray`; it is now using thread
    safe reference counting just like `Arc`; this means that shared ownership
    arrays are now `Send/Sync` if the corresponding element type is `Send
    + Sync`.
  - Add array method `.permute_axes()` by @jturner314
  - Add array constructor `Array::ones` by @ehsanmok
  - Add the method `.reborrow()` to `ArrayView/Mut`, which can be used
    to shorten the lifetime of an array view; in a reference-like type this
    normally happens implicitly but for technical reasons the views have
    an invariant lifetime parameter.
  - Fix an issue with type inference, the dimensionality of an array
    should not infer correctly in more cases when using slicing. By @jturner314.

Version 0.11.1 (2018-01-21)

  - Dimension types (`Ix1, Ix2, .., IxDyn`) now implement `Hash` by
  - Blas integration can now use *gemv* for matrix-vector multiplication also
    when the matrix is f-order by @maciejkula
  - Encapsulated `unsafe` code blocks in the `s![]` macro are now exempted
    from the `unsafe_code` lint by @jturner314

Version 0.11.0 (2017-12-29)

[Release announcement](https://jim.turner.link/pages/ndarray-0.11/)

  - Allow combined slicing and subviews in a single operation by @jturner314 and

    * Add support for individual indices (to indicate subviews) to the `s![]`
      macro, and change the return type to
      `&SliceInfo<[SliceOrIndex; n], Do>`.
    * Change the argument type of the slicing methods to correspond to the new
      `s![]` macro.
    * Replace the `Si` type with `SliceOrIndex`.
    * Add a new `Slice` type that is similar to the old `Si` type.

  - Add support for more index types (e.g. `usize`) to the `s![]` macro by
  - Rename `.islice()` to `.slice_inplace()` by @jturner314
  - Rename `.isubview()` to `.subview_inplace()` by @jturner314

    `.slice_axis_inplace()` methods by @jturner314
  - Add `Dimension::NDIM` associated constant by @jturner314
  - Change trait bounds for arithmetic ops between an array (by value) and
    a reference to an array or array view (“array1 (op) &array2”); before,
    an `ArrayViewMut` was supported on the left hand side, now, the left
    hand side must not be a view.
    ([#380]https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray/pull/380) by @jturner314
  - Remove deprecated methods (`.whole_chunks()`, `.whole_chunks_mut()`,
    `.sum()`, and `.mean()`; replaced by `.exact_chunks()`,
    `.exact_chunks_mut()`, `.sum_axis()`, and `.mean_axis()`,
    respectively) by @bluss
  - Updated to the latest blas (optional) dependencies. See instructions in the
  - Minimum required Rust version is 1.22.

    `IxDyn` will have a representation change next incompatible
    version. Use it as a type alias for best forward compatibility.

    Instead of `Ix` for dimension use `Ix1`, instead of `(Ix, Ix)` use
    `Ix2`, and so on.
  - The dimension type `Dim` supports indexing and arithmetic. See
    `Dimension` trait for new methods and inherited traits.
  - Constructors and methods that take tuples for array sizes, like `Array::zeros,`
    `Array::from_shape_vec`, `.into_shape()` and so on will continue to work
    with tuples.
  - The array method `.raw_dim()` returns the shape description
    `D` as it is. `.dim()` continues to return the dimension as a tuple.

    of the array types themselves.)

- 0.6.7

  - Improve performance of a lot of basic operations for arrays where
    the innermost dimension is not contiguous (`.fold(), .map(),
    .to_owned()`, arithmetic operations with scalars).
  - Require Rust 1.11

    memory layout. A lot of specific constructors were deprecated.
  - Add method `.select(Axis, &[Ix]) -> OwnedArray`, to create an array
    from a non-contiguous pick of subviews along an axis.
  - Rename `.mat_mul()` to just `.dot()` and add a function `general_mat_mul`
    for matrix multiplication with scaling into an existing array.

- 0.4.8

  - Fix an error in `.dot()` when using BLAS and arrays with negative stride.

- 0.4.7

  - Add dependency matrixmultiply to handle matrix multiplication
    for floating point elements. It supports matrices of general stride
    and is a great improvement for performance. See PR #175.

- 0.4.6

  - Fix bug with crate feature blas; it would not compute matrix
    multiplication correctly for arrays with negative or zero stride.
  - Update blas-sys version (optional dependency).

- 0.4.5

  - Add `.all_close()` which replaces the now deprecated `.allclose()`.
    The new method has a stricter protocol: it panics if the array

  - Performance improvements for contiguous arrays in non-c order when using
    methods `to_owned, map, scalar_sum, assign_scalar`,
    and arithmetic operations between array and scalar.
  - Some methods now return arrays in the same memory order of the input
    if the input is contiguous: `to_owned, map, mat_mul` (matrix multiplication
    only if both inputs are the same memory order), and arithmetic operations
    that allocate a new result.

    glue code for calling BLAS.
  - Performance improvements in `.assign_scalar`.

- 0.4.1

  - Added traits `NdFloat`, `AsArray` and `From for ArrayView` which
    improve generic programming.

    count overflows `usize`. (Would be a debug assertion for overflow before.)
  - Performance improvements for `.map()`.
  - Added `stack` and macro `stack![axis, arrays..]` to concatenate arrays.
  - Added constructor `OwnedArray::range(start, end, step)`.
  - The type alias `Array` was renamed to `RcArray` (and the old name deprecated).
  - Binary operators are not defined when consuming a mutable array view as
    the left hand side argument anymore.
  - Remove methods and items deprecated since 0.3 or earlier; deprecated methods
    have notes about replacements in 0.3 docs.
  - See below for full changelog through alphas.

- 0.4.0-alpha.8

  - In debug mode, indexing an array out of bounds now has a detailed
    message about index and shape. (In release mode it does not.)
  - Enable assign_ops feature automatically when it is supported (Rust 1.8 beta
    or later).
  - Add trait `NdFloat` which makes it easy to be generic over `f32, f64`.
  - Add `From` implementations that convert slices or references to arrays
    into array views. This replaces `from_slice` from a previous alpha.
  - Add `AsArray` trait, which is simply based on those `From` implementations.
  - Improve `.map()` so that it can autovectorize.
  - Use `Axis` argument in `RemoveAxis` too.
  - Require `DataOwned` in the raw data methods.
  - Merged error types into a single `ShapeError`, which uses no allocated data.

- 0.4.0-alpha.7

  - Fix too strict lifetime bound in arithmetic operations like `&a @ &b`.
  - Rename trait Scalar to ScalarOperand (and improve its docs).
  - Implement <<= and >>= for arrays.

  - Add method `.split_at(Axis, Ix)` to read-only and read-write array views.
  - Add constructors `ArrayView{,Mut}::from_slice` and array view methods
    are now visible in the docs.

- 0.4.0-alpha.5

  - Use new trait `LinalgScalar` for operations where we want type-based specialization.
    This shrinks the set of types that allow dot product, matrix multiply, mean.
  - Use BLAS acceleration transparently in `.dot()` (this is the first step).
  - Only OwnedArray and RcArray and not ArrayViewMut can now be used as consumed
    left hand operand for arithmetic operators. [See arithmetic operations docs!]
  - Remove deprecated module `linalg` (it was already mostly empty)
  - Deprecate free function `zeros` in favour of static method `zeros`.

- 0.4.0-alpha.4

  - Rename `Array` to `RcArray`. Old name is deprecated.
  - Add methods `OuterIter::split_at`, `OuterIterMut::split_at`
  - Change `arr0, arr1, arr2, arr3` to return `OwnedArray`.
    Add `rcarr1, rcarr2, rcarr3` that return `RcArray`.

- 0.4.0-alpha.1

  - Add checked and unchecked constructor methods for creating arrays
    from a vector and explicit dimension and stride, or with
    fortran (column major) memory order (marked `f`):

    + `from_vec_dim_unchecked_f`, `from_elem_f`, `zeros_f`
    + View constructors `ArrayView::from_slice_dim_stride`,
    + Rename old `ArrayBase::from_vec_dim` to `from_vec_dim_unchecked`.

  - Check better for wraparound when computing the number of elements in a shape;
    this adds error cases that **panic** in `from_elem`, `zeros` etc,
    however *the new check will only ever panic in cases that would
    trigger debug assertions for overflow in the previous versions*!.
  - Add an array chunks iterator `.axis_chunks_iter()` and mutable version;
    it allows traversing the array in for example chunks of *n* rows at a time.
  - Remove methods and items deprecated since 0.3 or earlier; deprecated methods
    have notes about replacements in 0.3 docs.

  - impl ExactSizeIterator where possible for iterators.
  - impl DoubleEndedIterator for `.outer_iter()` (and _mut).

- 0.3.0-alpha.3

  - `.subview()` changed to return an array view, also added `into_subview()`.
  - Add `.outer_iter()` and `.outer_iter_mut()` for iteration along the
    greatest axis of the array. Views also implement `into_outer_iter()` for
    “lifetime preserving” iterators.

- 0.3.0-alpha.2

  - Improve the strided last dimension case in `zip_mut_with` slightly
    (affects all binary operations).
  - Add `.row(i), .column(i)` for 2D arrays.
  - Deprecate `.row_iter(), .col_iter()`.
  - Add method `.dot()` for computing the dot product between two 1D arrays.

- 0.3.0-alpha.1

  - **Index type** `Ix` **changed to** `usize` (#9). Gives better iterator codegen
    and 64-bit size arrays.
  - Support scalar operands with arithmetic operators.
  - Change `.slice()` and `.diag()` to return array views, add `.into_diag()`.
  - Add ability to use fixed size arrays for array indexing, enabling syntax
    like `a[[i, j]]` for indexing.
  - Add `.ndim()`

- **0.2.0**

  - First chapter of API and performance evolution is done \\o/
  - 0.2.0 highlight: Vectorized (efficient) arithmetic operations
  - 0.2.0 highlight: Easier slicing using `s![]`
  - 0.2.0 highlight: Nicer API using views
  - 0.2.0 highlight: Bridging to BLAS functions.
  - See below for more info

- 0.2.0-alpha.9

  - Support strided matrices in `rblas` bridge, and fix a bug with
    non square matrices.
  - Deprecated all of module `linalg`.

- 0.2.0-alpha.8

  - **Note:** PACKAGE NAME CHANGED TO `ndarray`. Having package != crate ran
    into many quirks of various tools. Changing the package name is easier for
    everyone involved!
  - Optimized `scalar_sum()` so that it will vectorize for the floating point
    element case too.

- 0.2.0-alpha.7

  - Optimized arithmetic operations!

    - For c-contiguous arrays or arrays with c-contiguous lowest dimension
      they optimize very well, and can vectorize!

  - Add `.inner_iter()`, `.inner_iter_mut()`
  - Add `.fold()`, `.zip_mut_with()`
  - Add `.scalar_sum()`
  - Add example `examples/life.rs`

- 0.2.0-alpha.6

  - Add `#[deprecated]` attributes (enabled with new enough nightly)
  - Add `ArrayBase::linspace`, deprecate constructor `range`.

- 0.2.0-alpha.5

  - Add `s![...]`, a slice argument macro.
  - Add `aview_mut1()`, `zeros()`
  - Add `.diag_mut()` and deprecate `.diag_iter_mut()`, `.sub_iter_mut()`
  - Add `.uget()`, `.uget_mut()` for unchecked indexing and deprecate the
    old names.
  - Improve `ArrayBase::from_elem`
  - Removed `SliceRange`, replaced by `From` impls for `Si`.

- 0.2.0-alpha.4

  - Slicing methods like `.slice()` now take a fixed size array of `Si`
    as the slice description. This allows more type checking to verify that the
    number of axes is correct.
  - Add experimental `rblas` integration.
  - Add `into_shape()` which allows reshaping any array or view kind.

- 0.2.0-alpha.3

  - Add and edit a lot of documentation

- 0.2.0-alpha.2

  - Improve performance for iterators when the array data is in the default
    memory layout. The iterator then wraps the default slice iterator and
    loops will autovectorize.
  - Remove method `.indexed()` on iterators. Changed `Indexed` and added
  - Added `.as_slice(), .as_mut_slice()`
  - Support rustc-serialize

- 0.2.0-alpha

  - Alpha release!
  - Introduce `ArrayBase`, `OwnedArray`, `ArrayView`, `ArrayViewMut`
  - All arithmetic operations should accept any array type
  - `Array` continues to refer to the default reference counted copy on write
  - Add `.view()`, `.view_mut()`, `.to_owned()`, `.into_shared()`
  - Add `.slice_mut()`, `.subview_mut()`
  - Some operations now return `OwnedArray`:

    - `.map()`
    - `.sum()`
    - `.mean()`

  - Add `get`, `get_mut` to replace the now deprecated `at`, `at_mut`.
  - Fix bug in assign_scalar

- 0.1.1

  - Add Array::default
  - Fix bug in raw_data_mut

- 0.1.0

  - First release on crates.io
  - Starting point for evolution to come
