the SIMD (SSE) functions are only in the devel branch of the CVS. Some
major functions dealing with copying, setting, adding, multiplying data
have been adapted. Please also note that for meaningful usage of SIMD
the signal vectors have to be aligned (which is also taken care of in
the devel version).
In flext exists a detector function for various SIMD capabilities (in
flsimd.cpp) too which i haven't implemented in PD yet (maybe flext
should be implemented into PD ;-) )
In principle i also think that external assembler blocks would be
better but i wasn't sure how to do it right since i'm not too familiar
with the GNU assembler.
