in reply to PDL 2.058 released

PDL 2.062 has just been released. Notable changes since 2.059:
  • Fixes for log10 with “tgmath”
  • Native-complex ->re and ->im now do two-way dataflow
  • The random-number functions now use xoroshiro256+ rather than the almost-always worse (and thread-unsafe) libc analogues; they can now also pthread
Future plans, in no particular order:
  • finish the independent C interface for making PDL usable from e.g. Python
  • more pervasive use of e.g. BLAS/LAPACK routines if available
  • use OpenCL or other means to also utilise GPUs if available
  • “loop fusion” techniques to maximise locality of computation, minimising data’s trips through the “straw” between CPU and main RAM
The IRC channel (#pdl on is a great virtual place to come and ask questions, or just watch the GitHub messages flow by.

    thanks for that! (I just learned what "loop fusion" is)
