I just notice it’s one of the packages that hasn’t been upgraded, still stuck on 0.6.
I’m just thinking is this more of a testament of there no longer being a need with Julia 1.0+ much faster with or without say thread handing?
Other abandoned IntelLabs projects are Julia2C and HPAT.jl.
HPAT was one of my favorites to point to. It just seemed like an awesome Julia-only package, 100x faster than mainstream competitors. It still may be that, while it didn’t require being made in Julia with Intel porting it to Python. Has anyone used that one from Julia with PyCall? I suppose that would also work (better than current HPAT.jl?).
With PackageCompiler.jl (seemingly in good shape) and/or other related solutions, is Julia2C simply not needed anymore (unless you really want C code out, and why would you?). It seems it was a means to an end.
