At the moment, we're working on these features for Brian 1.1.3 which should be coming very soon:
In the medium term, possibly for Brian 1.2, we're working on:
- STDP working with connections with heterogeneous delays.
- A new RecentStateMonitor for storing only the most recent values of a variable.
- A new TimedArray class to make it easier to set the values of a variable in an equation from a precomputed array.
- Progress reporting for simulation runs, with estimates of how long the computation will take.
- Support for parallel processing with a GPU - the work in progress on this is already available in the experimental subpackage in Brian.
- Support for automatic generation and compilation of C code for nonlinear differential equation solvers.
- A subpackage, "Brian hears", for auditory system modelling, including efficient GPU based filterbank operations.
