Public CASA 5.6/6.0 release possible no earlier than mid-July; ALMA/EVLA pipeline release by Oct 1.
(Mark) CASA 6 build environment? Ok, including incremental build
Non-parallel build process slow/tedious; a fix for this is in the works in CV (Mehringer)
EHT-related article planned for next newsletter, expected ~alongside CASA 5.6 pipeline release
Probably a contribution from Michael Janssen, via Ilse
Newsletter expected ~Oct
(Mark) EHT polarization workshop
In Bonn, in July; EHT members only. Mark may adapt some ad hoc resolved-calibrator polarization-calibration scripts as tasks.
Jay Blanchard now in Socorro, cultivating interest in CASA VLBI (also SRDP)
New interest, new testing effort, from Socorro. Also new support demands, probably.
(Ryan) CASA Next Generation Infrastructure
Early stages of trade study work for new natively-parallel and scale-able frameworks, e.g., ApacheSpark; probably not c++; testing/prototyping in coming months, culminating in design reviews early next yearish. Many questions remain, including migration costs, pipeline vs. user orientation, etc.; answers to trickle in over the coming months.
Collaboration impacts to be managed by upper management.
