I am sending this message to people who have expressed interest in the areaDetector developer's meeting at ITER on October 5. There is now a Web page to register for the meeting.
It also has information on travel, housing, etc. If you plan to attend you should register and make your housing reservations soon.
I know that Bruno cannot attend in person, but he would like to participate remotely if possible.
We need to generate an agenda for the meeting, so suggestions are welcome.
Some preliminary topics can come from the proposed R4-0 and R5-0 milestones and their associated issues in ADCore from Github:
This release will change the NDPluginFile API.
#169 Create unittest for NDPluginDriver enhancement
#73 File writing modes: proposed changes for R3-0.
#251 Move more functionality into the ADDriver base class enhancement
#254 Implement NDPluginFile::readFile() for some file formats enhancement
#255 Add flag to prevent overwriting files in NDPluginFile enhancement
This release may change the NDArray and NDArrayPool classes to use shared pointers. This could either be done by changing the pData and pAttributeList pointers in NDArray into std::tr1:shared_ptr
or by replacing NDArray with V4 NTNDArray. The latter would make V4 a requirement for ADCore.
#1 NDArrayPool refactor
#95 Possible changes to NDArray and NDArrayPool enhancement
