I'd like to discuss about a release plan for the next 3.3 version.
First, let me recall that the devel branch includes several major new
- D&C SVD (see other thread)
- a novel product kernel
- novel expression template engine
All these features are pretty well advanced without remaining API
for normal usage, so I think it's time to plan an alpha1 release
instance around mid november? This release would be synchronized with
feature freeze: other features could be added before the alpha1
the condition they are sufficiently mature and mostly need internal
cleaning/documentation. This probably means that most of the
bug entries attached to 3.3 will be postponed to 3.4.
Then, a beta1 could follow within a month or two. For beta1, all the
internal design decisions that are still in suspens regarding the
expression evaluator will have to be resolved.
I have to ask with tenacity: Will there be an input operator finally.
Will Chen-Pang's patch be part of Eigen now.
The question about an input operator has been blocking for 3.3.
Did you remove the block?
PLEASE, don't postpone the decision about an input operator!
