Extensions, Bug Fixes, and Changes During 2012

The package pycppad.cppad_ was missing form the installation (after testing). This is due to be a bug in the python distutils package when the --inplace option is specified. The install instructions have been changed to avoid this problem.

Change the test from asserting that C++ is 100 times faster than Python to 75 times faster.

  1. Add missing --inplace flag in build instructions.
  2. Add with_debugging option to testing so that does not fail when you build without debugging.

  1. Simplify the script used during the install process. This included having the user to download and install CppAD, instead of having do this task.
  2. Document the change to the derivative of the abs that occurred in CppAD on 2011-12-30 .
