      Description

      Yonik has ported an implementation of MurmurHash 3.0 and put it in the public domain: http://www.lucidimagination.com/blog/2011/09/15/murmurhash3-for-java/

      It's a port of https://sites.google.com/site/murmurhash/ which says:

      (I reserve the right to tweak the constants after people have had a chance to bang on it). Murmur3 has better performance than MurmurHash2, no repetition flaw, comes in 32/64/128-bit versions for both x86 and x64 platforms, and the 128-bit x64 version is blazing fast - over 5 gigabytes per second on my 3 gigahertz Core 2.

      In addition, the library of test code that I use to test MurmurHash (called SMHasher) has been released - it's still rough (and will only compile under VC++ at the moment), but it contains everything needed to verify hash functions of arbitrary output bit-lengths.

      Murmur3 and all future versions will be hosted on Google Code here - http://code.google.com/p/smhasher/ - you can access the codebase via the 'Source' tab at the top.

      We should add support for it and hook into MinHash
