Attendees: Ken Moreland (SNL), Rob Maynard (Kitware), Matt Larsen (LLNL), Jeremy Meredith (ORNL), Chris Sewell (LANL)
Jeremy has made some progress on annotation. Dave and Rob have fixed the serious build issues.
Matt is going to send Chris an example he used to load a file and render.
Jeremy is on task to remove "order" from fields.
Chris went to C++ convention meeting last week. Some Thrust technology is going into the C++ standard. That could lead to some opportunities for VTK-m in the future.
Chris and Berk are going to do some VTK-m/Legion test runs.
Matt has got the atomic working. 32 and 64 bit integers add and swap atomics.
Matt trying to integrate VTK-m into Strawman. There are some compile issues. There is two back ends and some rendering code. It is taking 45 minutes to compile and producing binaries on the order of 400 MB. All of Matt's code should be statically typed, so something must be going wrong to observe this behavior. Rob volunteered to help debug what the issue is.
Rob has been working on the filters branch. Was ready last week, but there were some problems with compile time. Shaved off some time by pushing this into a metadata object. Unfortunately, this is not how we want to present the software interface. We may need to take a look at speeding up the resolution of dynamic types.
Chuck has the documentation things all synced up. That should go live tonight.
There were some changes in dashboard flags, and we are tickling some compiler bugs (or perhaps there is some VTK-m code that is invoking undefined behavior).
We talked briefly about the Version 1.0 ToDo List. Here is a snapshot of our current progress.
|Settling of the core interface|| Other than little things and filters, the core interface is pretty well set.
| Standardization of "filters"
||Rob is ready to merge his first pass of filters into master.|
|Support worklet operations that are not one-to-one output||Done|
|Basic file I/O||Done.|
|Basic rendering||Rendering is almost ready. Working out some build issues on the dashboard.|
|Clean up Doxygen||Need to get documentation syncing nightly. Chuck looking into this.|
|User's Guide||Behind. Trying to catch up. Making some progress.|
| Prototype VTK/ParaView/VisIt integration
(Technically not part of the release, but should indicate we have viable components.)
