We plan to have 3 major releases every year, with intermediate minor releases adding functionality to the aforementioned major releases. We typically number our releases based on the following rule: x.y.z; here, x.y indicates a major release with a significant advancement in the software’s capabilities (y increments from 0 through 9, before there is a rollover into x); z indicates improvements to the x.y release which is typically the result of bug fixes.
|Aperture||Visualization of spatiotemporal data based on sketches, shape files, observations, and images|
|Stash||Distributed caching for spatiotemporal visualization|
|Sustain DHT||Distributed hashtable based storage of sketches and strands. Leverages proxy arrays and LSM trees for scaling.|
|Atlas||Encompasses the HDFS-compliant distributed file system, and support for constructs such as RDDs, Datasets, and DataFrames to facilitate interoperation with analytical engines.|
|Synopsis||Sketching of spatiotemporal data. This also includes support for imputation of missing data at diverse spatiotemporal scopes.|
|Polyglot||Inter-operation with diverse encoding formats and storage frameworks.|
The software is open-source, and repositories are available at GitHub.com/Project-Sustain.
