Latest trunk errors ???

Hi,

I downloaded the latest changeset (18145) and found out that the trunk cannot be compiled as the unit tests still reference Matrix and this is not in NPack anymore.

Is there a reason why Matrix.cs is not included anymore in the project ?

Is the project dead ?

Hi Stecy -

No, not dead. It's stuck in the middle of a reorganization, since the concrete implementation of Matrix was moved to SharpMap, and that project has priority to complete.

The idea is to eventually provide a default implementation of Matrix, but NPack's mission has moved more to be a matrix processing library, with a sort of "bring your own matrix" philosophy. The benefit is to allow the application to define it's matrix and vector representation, organizing memory however needed. Coupled with a processing engine (either default or one which is suited to the matrix type you brought), NPack defines an API contract which can open up matrix processing to other libraries (such as SharpMap).
