This is the third coordinated Science WG release train. This year the new project releases include:
- Eclipse January is a set of libraries for handling scientific numerical data in Java. Eclipse January is inspired by the Python library, NumPy. This release deprecates many methods that use the constants in the Dataset interfaces and adds replacements that use its sub-classes. This is part of the migration to those sub-classes to sub-interfaces with the concrete classes moved to an internal package. This will allow for alternate implementations of these interfaces.
- Eclipse StatET is an Eclipse-based IDE for the R programming language for statistical computing and graphics. StatET offers a set of mature tools for R coding and package building including a fully integrated R console, R script editors, an integrated R graphics view and other features. This release is a maintenance release of StatET 4.0 providing bug fixes and minor enhancements.
- Eclipse TeXlipse project provides an Eclipse extension to support LaTex projects, so that document preparation can be incorporated into the normal Eclipse development activities. General LaTeX users will also find the advanced editing and automatic document generation features of TeXclipse provide a compelling alternative to other LaTeX environments.
- Eclipse Triquetrum, an open platform for managing and executing scientific workflows. The goal of Triquetrum is to support a wide range of use cases, ranging from automated processes based on predefined models, to replaying ad-hoc research workflows recorded from a user's actions in a scientific workbench UI. This release updates the Ptolemy II runtime, supports Eclipse 2019-09 and JDK 13.
- Eclipse XACC provides a system-level software infrastructure for heterogeneous quantum-classical computing architectures. XACC provides the software interfaces and infrastructure required by domain computational scientists to offload computationally intractable work to an attached quantum accelerator. This initial 1.0.0 release provides the first iteration of the core XACC API which decomposes the quantum-classical programming workflow into frontend, middle-end, and backend architectural layers.
The new releases are available today from the respective project web sites.
