PDP systems are a type of multienvironment P systems, which serve as a
formal modeling framework for Population Dynamics. The accurate simulation of these
probabilistic models entails large run times. Hence, parallel platforms such as GPUs has
been employed to speedup the simulation. In 2012 [14], the first GPU simulator of PDP
systems was presented. In this paper, we present current updates made on this simulator,
and future developments to consider.
