1 Notes from Utrecht on future directions for packages and infrastructure

1.1 containers

Work underway to do general performance improvements to the containers package, based on worker/wrapper and other idioms. New repository for work on patch-tag:

Added test suite and coverage data:

Investigate certain functions, then determine if anything on Hackage uses them. If no such package is found using the Map function, remove it from the API -- 20 years and 2000 packages should be enough empirical evidence.

Added benchmarking suite:

Improved performance:

1.2 hackage 2

Ready Hackage 2 for use.

1.3 network

network package is low level, difficult to maintain and fragile. Rewrite using design from python?

1.4 hashmaps

Based on Patricia trees and using MurmurHash.

1.5 hashtables

Fast, open addressed hashtables: useful, but relatively small ROI. Also quite complex.

1.6 text

Propose text for the HP.

1.7 platform

Generate unified docs for the HP.
