Hello, everybody.

In this post, a quick look at some statistics for QuantLib 1.11, released on October 2nd. Also, a bit of news: the QuantLib User Meeting 2017 was announced recently. It will be in Düsseldorf on November 30th, and you can find a flyer with more details on the QuantLib site. Registration is free, but the places are limited.

Back to the QuantLib 1.11 release. It comes 4 and a half months after release 1.10, with the bug-fix release 1.10.1 in between; the trend of two or three releases per year seem to continue. It contains 47 between issues and pull requests, a decrease from the 59 in release 1.10 but still a nice figure. From the previous link, you can look at each of them in detail and see the specific diffs in the code (thanks, GitHub).

The usual bit of git-fu shows 288 commits by 20 people, once you remove duplicates. That’s a slight increase from the 256 and 19 in last release. Also, there seems to be a nice balance between new and recurring contributors.

Release info

Thanks also to all the people (unfortunately more difficult to track) that have reported problems and suggested improvements through other channels.

QuantLib-SWIG 1.11 was released, too. It features 68 commits by 8 people for a total of 17 issues and pull requests.

Release info

Again, thanks to anyone that contributed. And, as I write this, there’s still a week left in October; pull requests opened to either repository until the end of the month will increase your count for this year’s Hacktoberfest. If you don’t have ideas, I’ve marked a few issues that you can tackle.
