jwe priorities[edit]

See also JWE Project Ideas for additional info about some of these items.
  • Bug fixes, especially those related to compatibility issues.
  • Work through the open bug reports for which patches have been submitted. Review/apply/reject and close as many of these reports as possible.
  • Refactor/rewrite code for handling load path.
  • Refactor/rewrite exist and which functions.
  • Create a low-level interface to HDF5 functions.
  • Support Matlab's HDF5-based MAT file format using the proposed low-level interface to HDF5 functions.
    • Allow all types of function handles to be saved and loaded.
    • Allow classdef objects to be saved and loaded.
  • Replace the terminal widget in the GUI.
  • Accept Matlab's new argument validation syntax in parser.
