Benoît Jacob asked me to publish this great news for him as his blog disappeared from this planet...:
We just released the beta version of Eigen 2.0
. It has matured a lot over recent weeks as quite a number of apps have been ported to it: Avogadro
, KOffice (mainly Krita and a little KSpread)
, KGLLib, SolidKreator, KGLEngine. We plan to release 2.0 later this fall.
There is now a quite decent Tutorial
which is a good starting point if you are interested in Eigen.
Besides polishing for the upcoming 2.0 release, we are already making big plans for the future. Version 2.1 will have a complete Sparse module, which will be very useful for Krita
. Gael had been doing the ground work for this module, and recently Daniel Gomez joined us and contributed several improvements.
We still are very few developers -- Daniel is basically the 3rd one, with Gael and me, although a few guys have been helping occasionnally in the past. We definitely can use more help (hint, hint). For that reason we try to polish the documentation a lot, and we can mentor any prospective contributor. Here is a TODO
with many available jobs, all you need is C++ and some math background.
