Memory-Based Learning (MBL) is a machine-learning method applicable to a wide
range of tasks in Natural Language Processing (NLP).
The Tilburg Memory Based Learner, TiMBL, is a tool for NLP research, and for
many other domains where classification tasks are learned from examples.  It
is an efficient implementation of k-nearest neighbor classifier.
TiMBL's features are:
* Fast, decision-tree-based implementation of k-nearest neighbor
* Implementations of IB1 and IB2, IGTree, TRIBL, and TRIBL2 algorithms;
* Similarity metrics: Overlap, MVDM, Jeffrey Divergence, Dot product, Cosine;
* Feature weighting metrics: information gain, gain ratio, chi squared,
shared variance;
* Distance weighting metrics: inverse, inverse linear, exponential decay;
* Extensive verbosity options to inspect nearest neighbor sets;
* Server functionality and extensive API;
* Fast leave-one-out testing and internal cross-validation;
* and Handles user-defined example weighting.
TiMBL is a product of the ILK Research Group (Tilburg University, The
Netherlands) and the CLiPS Research Centre (University of Antwerp, Belgium).
If you do scientific research in NLP, timbl will likely be of use to you.

* New upstream release.
* debian/control: bumped libticcutils2-dev build-depends from >=0.3 to >= 0.7.
* debian/copyright: refer to versioned symlink to GPL (thanks lintian).

timbl (6.4.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

* debian/libtimbl4-dev.install, debian/libtimbl-dev.install,
debian/control: rename libtimbl-dev to libtimbl4-dev.
upstream cannot guarantee strong compatibility yet.
* debian/control: change Build-Depends "libticcutils2-dev | libticcutils-dev"
in "libticcutils2-dev (>=0.3)" in: on second thought, we decided not to go
for unversioned libticcutils-dev.  See also Bug#718501: "release.debian.org:
transition: ticcutils".
* debian/control: Standards-Version upgraded from policy 3.9.3 to 3.9.4 (no
other changes needed: section 8.6 is mostly not applicable to us: we keep
using shlibs files, not symbols, since we build from C++ sources).
