libpll-2 is the new official fork of libpll (https://github.com/xflouris/libpll/). It implements site repeats to speed up computations.
Please read the wiki for more information.

List of projects already using libpll-2 and site repeats, and reported speedups compared with the tip pattern optimization:
- RAxML-NG: speedup ranges between 1.2 and 1.5
- ModelTest-NG: speedup around 1.3
- EPA-ng: memory footprint reduced by 30%.
apt-get install flex bison
The library also requires that a GNU system is available as it uses several
asprintf) which are not present in the POSIX standard.
This, however will change in the future in order to have a more portable
and cross-platform library.
The library can be compiled using either of the following two ways.
Cloning the repo Clone the repo and bild the executable and documentation using the following commands.
git clone https://github.com/xflouris/libpll.git cd libpll ./autogen.sh ./configure make make install # as root, otherwise run: sudo make install
sudo apt-get install autotools-dev autoconf libtool
The library will be installed on the operating system's standard paths. For
some GNU/Linux distributions it might be necessary to add that standard path
/etc/ld.so.conf and run
Microsoft Windows compatibility was tested with a cross-compiler and seems to work out-of-the-box using MingW.
