Hey all,

I am proud to publish a report of my GSoC work as two extensive blog posts, which explain non-uniform random sampling and the mir.random.flex package (part of Mir > 0.16-beta2):


It's really nice to see that GSoC has been such a huge success so far. Everyone has done some really great work.

Over the next weeks and months I will continue my work on mir.random, which is supposed to supersede std.random, so in case you aren’t following the Mir project [1, 2], stay tuned!

Best regards,

I'm curious, have you come up with a solution to what is probably the biggest problem with std.random, i.e., it uses value types and copying? I remember a lot of discussion about this and it seemed at the time that the only really solid solution was to make all random generators classes, though I think DIP1000 *may* help here.
