Josu,
while I was exploring deeper Jython I saw how advantageous was having a Python environment that gave us access to lots of Java libraries (scientific, numerical, graphics, plotting, database and what not). Two of those many libraries was Open Source Physics (www.compadre.org/OSP/) and Easy Java Simulations (www.um.es/fem/EjsWiki/). They have full environments for numeric and scientific development, as well as a powerful distribution system in the form of jar, applet or Java WebStart stand alone applications. You can develop powerful numeric
applications (with drag and drop Swing, 2D and 3D objects) with plotting capabilities in minutes. Take a quick look and you will see what I mean. I have used the libraries in Windows XP, Mac OS/X and Linux Ubuntu.

I spent some time using the OSP and EJS Java libraries from Jython and I has been quite a satisfying experience. It is my believe that adding a thin layer of Jython on top of these two libraries would give the Jython & Python numeric community a giant leap and reduce considerably development time for new numeric libraries. In my humble opinion.

Hi, Jim

It sounds like numpy for java  will be out of plans for long time,  
isn't it?

In such case, this will be a bad new, since I think that a "scientific  
jython" will be a very interesting and accepted platform.

Josu,

2.5.1 will likely include very few new features, since we only have  
a month
to the release candidate. Instead it will roll up various bug fixes,
including the recent ones for coroutines/generators. And there will  
be a
number of performance optimizations.

Like you, I personally remain quite interested in seeing NumPy  
implemented
against Jython. (A friend with a keener marketing sense has told me we
should call it "NumPy for Java" instead of "NumJy".) However, this is
functionality that should not be in a Jython release like 2.5.x.  
Instead, it
will be in a separate project with its own schedule.

Hi

Following the lasts emails, I have one question about version 2.5.1.
What are the (new) features to be included in such version? In
particular, I am interested in any possible implementation of numpy  
or
similar. If any is working on such tool, I am able to help testing  
the
developed parts.

Regards

josu
