BAYES-LIN is an ongoing project (but see below). Here is an outline of the
things to expect in future releases.
I intend to leave BAYES-LIN dormant for a little while. If you use it, and
like it, and would like me to move the above tasks further up my priority
list, email me to tell me! At the moment I am messing around with some
other stuff (see my software page). However, I do intend
to continue with development of this package in the not-too-distant
future. Ultimately, the whole thing will probably be ported to a fast,
efficient compiled language (such as Sather), but not in the near future.
- 0.4 Version 0.3 forms the basis for the computational
engine, but has "lost" the graphics windows that were present in
0.1. Version 0.4 will be simply version 0.3, with diagnostic graphics
- 0.5 A gui front-end for interactive specification of the
DAG models will be added. This will be a bit of a pain, and a bit of a
gimmick (it is no use for specifying large models). However,
it will provide a nice illustration of the model building
process for small, simple models.
- 0.6 Will be mainly a bug-fix release, together with
improved documentation and a new suite of example code.
- 1.0 Will just be a bug-fix of 0.6, but will represent the
first "official" release of BAYES-LIN.
In fact, my library GDAGsim makes BAYES-LIN a
bit redundant now (especially if I ever get around to doing a Python
front-end for it), and LISP-STAT itself seems to be on the way out, so I
may never get around to doing much more with BAYES-LIN...
