A related package, pyNeuroML builds on this and provides functionality, scripts and modules for reading, writing, simulating and analysing NeuroML2/LEMS models.
Development process for libNeuroML
Most of the work happens in the development branch. That branch is kept up to date with the development branches for NeuroML 2 and related libraries. See https://neuroml.org/getneuroml for an overview of the various NeuroML libraries.
