designed to provide a range of tools that can assist in software development for parallel computer systems. The project was started in 2005 and has now attracted a number of committers from a variety of organizations. This talk will provide an overview of the project, our goals and aspirations, and the current status of PTP. We will present our future plans for PTP, including a discussion of some of the challenges facing developers working with the latest peta-scale hardware systems. We will also look at some of the exciting new parallel tools that are being integrated into Eclipse and that will make use of PTP infrastructure.
