[eigen] Future for Eigen 2.0

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/eigen Archives ]


This message is prompted by a recent question on the forum about the LeastSquares module, which was in Eigen 2.0 but removed from 3.0.

People still find the Eigen 2.0 documentation (presumably via Google, but there is also a link on our wiki). Do we still need Eigen 2.0? Should we remove it from our website, or put a big notice that it is outdated? For reference, Eigen 3.0.0 was released in March 2011, 3.0.1 in May 2011, and 3.1.0 in June 2012.

Following on, what about the Eigen2 compatibility mode in Eigen3? I doubt this is being tested properly. Are people still using it? Should we deprecate it in 3.2.1 (which we will probably release fairly soon?) with a view of removing it in 3.3?

All the best,
