On behalf of the PLplot core team I recently invited Arjen Markus and
Andrew Ross to join us, and I am quite pleased to announce that they have
both accepted our invitation. In practical terms this means they will have
direct cvs write access to the PLplot code (rather than submitting patches
as before), and instant cvs read access. There are intangible benefits as
well such as having more of a say in the direction PLplot will take in the
To introduce the new core team members a little, Arjen is already in charge
of the sys/win32/msdev port of PLplot and also has substantial experience on
the Unix side of things as well. His principal languages are C, fortran,
and Tcl; and he has recently helped out by providing standard fortran
examples to test our refurbished fortran interface. Andrew has recently
completely refurbished our C++ interface to PLplot, programmed the standard
examples in C++ to help test that interface, and also figured out some
long-standing bugs we had in the memory management of our core C code.
On behalf of the PLplot core team, welcome to Arjen and Andrew! I am sure
they will both help our team achieve an ever brighter future for PLplot.
