  • Borland compiler still have problems with concept checking
  • Some concerns about the burden of explicit instantiation for developers
    • Similar to the wrapping process. Types should be choosen for every class.
    • One file per type. e.g. Image char 3, is one file, Image float 2 is another file.
    • How to ensure that future developers will remember to add the explicit instantiation file for new classes ?
    • How to allow users to turn on selective pieces of the explicit instantiation
    • Could it be possible to generate the files instead of having to put them in CVS ?
  • Papers from the Insight Journal
  • Bill : bug found in the shape iterator.
  • New example on Model to image registration.
