Here is quote from Intel IPP developer:
>>...By the way, now we are thinking about if it worth continuing relases of dynamic IPP libraries. If there nothing helpful
>>in DLLs why not to stop doing them?
We already discussed that subject some time ago and I've explained that when application is linked with IPP dynamic link libraries and uses IPP DLLs it allows to change CPU dispatching DLLs for different computer systems with different CPUs. An application stays the same and doesn't need to be re-compiled!
You need to contact all IPP developers in order to conduct a survey before making such final decision. I really would like to express concerns regarding that and possibility of removing DLLs from IPP.
This is a wrong direction and it will affect thousands of IPP library developers. Take into account that Intel MKL and TBB teams don't even consider it and if a couple of developers had / have some issues with IPP DLLs this is Not the reason to remove DLLs and to change everything to static linking.
All major libraries used in the software industry, like MFC, Boost, QT, GTK, etc, provide both options ( that is, dynamic and static linking ) and it allows a developer to decide what solution works better for a project.
You should think about a solution similar to MKL's Link Adviser instead, like IPP Link Adviser, and it is Not clear why it is Not done for so many years.
