Hello Nim community, I wanted to try the possibilities of Nim in scientific computing, but I got stuck in rather a simple task dealing with triangular matrix processed in parallel. Nim complains it cannot prove the parallel items are disjoint. I asked about it on stackoverflow (see the link), but no response yet.

I don't know if I missed some point or how should Nim deal with it?

Thanks for any comment!

This is based on github.com/kostya/benchmarks results, modified to filter out any languages, implementations, or libraries that don't fit the definition of Free Software.

Nim programming language will continue to gradually catch up to Rust, as the latter has multimillion dollar backers and was designed for performance from the beginning. Nim, on the other hand, is as grassroots as it gets, but it's built on great ideas!

There are major JSON optimizations in the pipeline for the next version of Nim. Also, achieving Julia level of matrix manipulation performance would just involve a wrapper around BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms).

I have installed Nim 0.14 and I have Nim 0.12 from before (Ubuntu Linux).

Question is about nimble. How I can differentiate is Nimble related to 0.12 or 0.14 and if that is not possible, what are critical Nimble setup so I can point it to either version of Nim.

Is there some obstacle to upgrade Nimble (currently I have have nimble v0.6.0 compiled at 2015-03-01 12:59:06) to the latest version.

If I upgrade nimble would it reflect to Nim v.0.12 ?

What is best/suggested/advised course of action ?

We are proud to announce the official 2016 Nim Community Survey! No matter whether you use Nim today, have used Nim previously, or never used Nim before; we want to know your opinions. Your feedback will help the Nim project understand its strengths and weaknesses, and to determine development priorities for the future.
