why 0.5? because it works for me, but hopefully it will work for  
others too, and 1.0 will be a release with more contributors...

Blip is a library that offers

  * N-dimensional arrays (blip.narray) that have a nice interface to  
lapack (that leverages the wrappers of baxissimo)
  * 2,3 and 4D vectors, matrixes and quaternions from the omg library  
of h3r3tic
  * multidimensional arrays, with nice to use wrappers to blas/lapack
  * a testing framework that can cope both with combinatorial and  
random testing
    this means that you can define an environment (be it struct or  
class, maybe even templatized)
    and then define generators that create one such environment (see  
blip.rtest.BasicGenerators)
    then you can define testing functions that will receive newly  
generated environments and do the tests
  * serialization (blip.serialization) that supports both json format,  
that can be used also for input files and an
    efficient binary representation
  * MPI parallelization built on the top of mpi, but abstracting it  
away (so that a pure tcp implementation is possible),
    for tightly coupled parallelization
  * a Distribued Objects framework that does rpc via proxies  
(blip.parallel.rpc)
  * a simple socket library that can be used to connect external  
programs, even if written in fortran or C (for a weak parallel coupling)
  * a coherent and efficient io abstraction

But what might be most interesting is.

  * SMP parallelization (blip.parallel.smp) a numa aware very flexible  
framework

a parallelization framework that can cope well with both thread like  
and data like parallelism, integrated with libev
to offer efficient socket i/o and much more.

An overview of blip is given in
	http://dsource.org/projects/blip/wiki/BlipOverview
The parallelization is discussed in
	http://dsource.org/projects/blip/wiki/ParallelizationConcepts
finally to install it see
	http://dsource.org/projects/blip/wiki/GettingStarted

This looks pretty good. Too bad it's only for D1. I'll be keeping an eye out for a D2 version in the future. ;) -Lars
