Chinese Whispers Clustering according to the paper by Chris Biemann. The algorithm is time-linear (w.r.t. the number of edges), non-deterministic and extremely fast!
The current implementation represents a simple variant (no random class mutations yet), works single-threaded and allows for a randomized (rgb-space) coloring of the resulting clusters giving a fast visual feedback. For questions and ideas please contact the plugin author Thomas Efer.
