Hi Mabula,

I know things are busy and a lot of development going on but would

like to ask you about the status on the migration to GPU, paralel processing.

Any timeline for this important upgrade??

Stay well,

Hi Mert, I know that Mabula is definitely wanting too implement it but it does require a lot of work. First priority is to move APP to Java 11, so it will still be a while and I don't have the timeline for it.

Hi Mert @lammertus,

As Vincent indicated, we are first moving to Java 11.

Timeline as planned now:

APP 1.083 stable will now soon come...

Then APP 1.084 will contain the highly requeste save/load settings & projects

APP 1.085 will be big because we move to JAVA 11 or GRAAL as development development platform.

Then in the versions after that we will get time again for the move to use the GPU for parallel analytical processing.
