I won’t be able to attend, but my major update is that (after we rebuild the docs) we will have "Available since " information for all functions in the functions reference back to 2.0

Besides that, just some bug hunting/fixing in stanc3 for me this week


updates from today’s meeting:

  • rstan continues to be used by more and more R packages - it’s not just fbprophet, brms, and rstanarm anymore.

  • the C++ devs, notably @rok_cesnovar, @stevebronder, and @wds15 are working on a patch release of 2.28, if all goes well, will be out early next week

  • next week is Prob Prog 2021, completely online and affordable registration

  • next week is also Stan connect Biomedical

I love this! It was very useful, when checking whether SVD is supported, to see “Available since 2.26”!
