Announce: TONS-0.0.1 released



To whom it may concern:

The TONS project (http://www.sslug.dk/TONS/) aims to produce an
environment in which scientists and engineers can accomplish numerical
calculations, easier and faster than before.

The 0.0.1 release is barely a proof-of-concept release.  In fact, it
includes nothing of real value to end users.  The code is released only
to fuel interest in the project, in the hope that more developers and
clever people in general will find interest in the project.

Goals:

 *)  To produce a computing environment that will provide an alternative to 
     MatLab, Octave, RLab, and the others (maybe even C/Fortran + MPI).
     The environment will have to consist of a good language, visualization
     capabilities, and an effective computing engine.

 *)  TONS will automatically parallelize code. This will make it possible to 
     write software _once_ and run on any cluster configuration without new
     tuning or rewriting of the code.

Current status:

 *)  It compiles.    :)

 *)  Basically everything needs to be done. Sample code exists for computation
     of Fibonacci numbers, and this can be run over a network (but the code is
     not yet parallelized).

The future:

 *)  A compiler is in the works.
     Design of a language is something that should not be done over night.  And
     the design of the TONS Algorithmic Language (TAL) is bound to be an effort
     that will take time.

 *)  A lot of effort is currently being put into the automatic parallelization.
     This feature of TONS will hopefully evolve rapidly in the near future.
     The goal is to have good automatic parallelization running in early July.

 *)  Expect to see frequent releases, as the mist clears.


If this project caught your interest, consider joining the sslug-scicomp mailing-list
(see the TONS homepage for information).   We need all the input and help we can get
on this one.


Thank you,
