Recent neural2d news

Ubuntu 16.04

We’re happy to report that neural2d has been tested in a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 installation, and — whew — it works (subject to the caveat below). That’s using CMake 3.5.1 and g++ 5.4. You are invited to comment on what operating systems and tool versions you have successfully used with neural2d.


Thanks to a report from an alert participant, we found a problem where the optional webserver does not get compiled and linked by default as described in the documentation.

cd build


The README file in the top level directory has been updated with clearer instructions about preparing input data for the neural net, and with a few additional internal links and references. There’s no functional changes, and no new secrets revealed; just wordsmithing. Readers are encouraged to comment on the documentation or to submit additional documentation.
