Monitor changes pull request (move Monitor API from pvData to pvAccess; AI from meeting 15-Mar-2016, http://tinyurl.com/zqa3qyp
Test creating a Launchpad project for the bundleCPP module
KK: Image client on the CS-Studio side was updated.
HJ: Progress on the RTEMS 4.12 port, using the .../os/… mechanism
It seems to be hard to find a date that works for everyone.
If a joint meeting gets pushed towards May, the Core group would probably have a first meeting earlier (Feb/Mar, probably at Argonne).
AI on AJ & EB: Agree on list of dates to circulate to the two groups for matching timetables in May/June. Discuss with GS first to avoid blockers on the FRIB side.
Status is not completely clear; probably still tests to be added and/or improved for newly added features (link support code).
Release process takes at least 4 weeks, so a January release seems to be impossible.
MD’s ‘integration’ branch contains some changes which seem to need more discussion.
GS: Michael is currently under a heavy work-load.
AI on AJ: Look at split locking in the link-support code.
AJ and/or MD will look at link-support testing, last blocker for the release.
MD: Additional changes in integration branch which are not essential but would be nice.
Will publish a timetable when the last blocker code has been merged.
KK: pvAccess optimizes structures, only sending changes; does it do this for arrays?
KK: Transport is pluggable, would that be a way to compress the data? Looking for image support.
MD: AreaDetector has image format flags which would probably be the place to do that.
HJ: We plan to use zlib for compression and decompression with this.
MD: I would like to experiment with this except there are no clients that support it, a function in DIIRT would be one obvious way to do so.
MD: I normally have a meeting at this time, could we move it forward (earlier by 1 hour?)
AJ: Discuss online for time & date of next meeting.
