Goals for upcoming releases

As discussed in the developer meeting on 2020/10/27, this wiki section is for a list of possible goals for the next release. Although anyone may edit the wiki, this page is intended for active developers, not a place to dump wishlist items or feature requests. Please create a subsection for your ideas/prioirities.

jwe priorities

  • 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.

  • 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.
