At the beginning of September, the yearly MATSim Developer Meeting took place. A number of important decisions have been made and announced on the developers mailing list. The most important ones:
- MATSim will now require Java 7 to run, and developers can start using Java 7 features in their code
- A new configuration file format ("config.xml") offering more flexibility to deal with lists and enumerations has been introduced
- Ids in MATSim will become typed, such that a link's id can be differentiated from a node's id, or from other type of Ids.
The change to typed Ids is already ongoing, with large parts of MATSim (the core) and the contributions already using the new type of Ids. Feel free to change the code in your playgrounds accordingly.
Events/Notes/Information that are Worth Mentioning
