The RAPP project is proud to announce a new release of RAPP,
A tarball is available at

>From NEWS:

- New 128-bit NEON vector backend for ARM (32-bit): neon128.

- New 64-bit and 128-bit NEON vector backends for Aarch64.
These are referred to as neon and neon128, just like for ARM.

- The default for Aarch64 is now neon128: NEON is always present
and the results for 128-bit NEON are on average better than
64-bit NEON and non-vector.

- The default for ARM with NEON support is now neon128: the new
128-bit NEON backend has been observed to yield a 10%
improvement over the 64-bit NEON backend on rapp-intensive
applications.  Explicitly stating --enable-backend=neon
continues to work as before.

(That's right, there was no 0.9.  That zero was just lingering,
time to let it go.)

Happy hacking.
