Dear Octave users and maintainers,
Dear librsb users,
Version 1.0.8 of the "sparsersb" Octave package  is out.
"sparsersb" gives Octave users transparent access to the
shared-memory parallel sparse matrices library "librsb",
useful when you are multiplying repeatedly huge sparse
matrices, particularly symmetric ones.
A summary of important user-visible changes is available online 
and it's mostly bugfixes, tests, and a small efficiency fix.
Note that this version requires librsb-126.96.36.199 (just released )
or later to work.
Thanks to Marco Atzeri, Rafael Laboissiere, and Olaf Till for
direct help with this release.
