I'm glad to see the generic base libraries have made their way back into IPP but I'm a little puzzled about how to use the statically linked version. This is from the update notification email I just got:
"The generic dynamic library files will automatically integrate with the Intel
IPP library dispatch mechanism; the generic static library files do not
integrate with the Intel IPP dispatcher."
So how do we make sure our code will run on systems that require the generic library if we've statically linked IPP? Write our own dispatcher? That would kind of suck.
