    1 = Welcome to Trac 0.10.4 =
     1= Welcome to the Development Home of Parabix - World's Fastest XML Software =
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3Parabix (Parallel bit streams for XML - TM) demonstrates a fundamentally new way to
     4perform high-speed parsing of XML documents.   Byte-oriented character stream data
     5is first transformed into eight parallel bit streams, each bit stream comprising
     6one bit per character code unit.  Code units may be ASCII characters or
     7UTF-8 bytes, for example, with one parallel bit stream defined for each of
     8bit 0 through bit 7 of each code unit.  Given such a representation, the
     9128-bit SIMD (single-instruction multiple-data) registers of the SSE (Intel
     10architecture SIMD technology) or Altivec (Power PC architecture) may be used
     11to process 128 code unit positions at a time.
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     13Applications of parallel bit stream technology to various text/Unicode/XML
     14processing applications is the ongoing research of Prof. Rob Cameron of the
     15School of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University.  See also the
     16[ u8u16] project for application of parallel bit
     17stream technology to high-speed UTF-8 to UTF-16 transcoding.

    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
    29 Enjoy! [[BR]]
