Back on the 1st of November 2009, Chang and Lin released the version 2.9 of the well known LIBSVM library. A couple of months laster, I have finally found the time to backport the changes in my LIBSVM Plus, now at the 2.9 version as well. The backport this time was very easy, because there […]

LIBSVM Plus 2.89 is out

While I still did not find the time to rewrite LIBSVM in the way I would like, I keep updating my LIBSVM Plus, back-porting the latest changes from the head version (2.89 this time) of the classic LIBSVM. This release is nothing more than a merge with classic LIBSVM code updates. All the “plus” features […]

This release is nothing more than a merge with classic LIBSVM code updates. All the “plus” features are the same of the previous (2.86) version. Enjoy, test, and report!

A little upgrade for LIBSVM Plus 2.86

While I keep testing the novel kernels I previously mentioned, I decided to upgrade the current package of LIBSVM Plus by adding a slightly modified version of the python tools already provided by original LIBSVM. Plus, I added two scripts originally created by Hsuan-Tien Lin. Fore more details, take a look to the LIBSVM Plus […]

Hello guys, it is not so long that I released LIBSVM Plus, but I am about to release a minor update which introduce new kernels. Some of them are well known in literature and are probabilistic kernels. The other ones are, at the best of my knowlegde, novel kernels and I’ll release them only when […]
