Herbie 1.0 Release Notes

After two years of work, the Herbie developers are excited to announce Herbie 1.0! This is the first release of Herbie, marking its transition from research software to a tool for scientists and engineers to improve the accuracy of their floating point software.

Herbie automatically improves the accuracy of floating point expressions. This avoids the bugs, errors, and surprises that so often occur when working with floating point. Since our PLDI'15 paper, we've been hard at work making Herbie more versatile and easier to use.

We're excited to continue to improve Herbie and make it more useful to scientists, engineers, and programmers around the world. We've got a lot of features we're excited to work on in the coming months. Please report bugs, join the mailing list, or contribute.
