It was noted that another release of the OpenMx closed beta library will be produced today.
There are a discussion of the next immediate implementation tasks. On the front-end, it was decided that square bracket notation should be implemented, and a tool from converting Mx 1.0 algebra expressions to OpenMx algebra expressions is needed. On the back-end, the most immediate goal is to implement some sort of checkpointing to disk.
Several major milestones were discussed as possible options for the next task of OpenMx. The list of potential milestones is: confidence intervals, mixture distributions, combined categorical and continuous ordinal, and weighted least squares. Of these options, mixture distributions was selected is the next implementation goal, after checkpointing to disk was completed.
