Totally new BLAS and LAPACK bindings have been checked in at the
boost-sandbox in boost/numeric/bindings.

These new bindings can be used for ublas matrices, boost::array, std::vector,
tnt etc. thanks to a uniform interface for all these container-types
(in boost/numeric/bindings/traits) developed by Kresimir Fresl.
It also contains detection of the fortran link-compatibility.

The blas-bindings contains an extensive regression-test which at the same
time serves as a performance test of the native ublas implementation in
respect to (vendor-tuned) blas. (more info in
libs/numeric/bindings/blas/test/index.html and

Note that the bindings are not complete but the 'framework' is there and it's
just a matter of time to complete them.


BTW: there has been extensive discussion on this topic at the ublas-dev
mailinglist, see
