I'd like to know what pg is thinking. Even a tiny bit of communication would go along way, but he seems to have left the building.

If he wants to take 6 months or a year to release the next version, that's fine, but it would be nice to have some indication of a plan regardless of how informal.

Maybe you should send him an e-mail and ask him explicitly. He doesn't seem to come here these days anyway... I hope that's not because he's horrified by what we did to his baby :)

Don't worry, according to his own philosophy, pg just has to complete the final (f) step :)

"Here it is: I like to find (a) simple solutions (b) to overlooked problems (c) that actually need to be solved, and (d) deliver them as informally as possible, (e) starting with a very crude version 1, then (f) iterating rapidly."

perhaps we can make an 'official' branch on anarki, one that would be guided by pg. so that if he says "add forward closures" or "implement a basic math library" the anarkists can go ahead and do that. because a lot of these features aren't exactly simple or quick to implement, so it may be better to just let pg be the overseer on a lot of them

what do you guys think about something like that?

I think you're directing your question to the wrong audience.

I also find find the statement: "we can make an 'official' branch" amusing :)

i know there is already an 'official' one on anarki. i guess it could just be a continuation of that one


1 point by lojic 4517 days ago | link

No, there is not an 'official' one on anarky - that's the point. The only official one is Arc2.tar, and I wouldn't expect the next release anytime soon.


2 points by tokipin 4515 days ago | link

odd. i thought there was a branch that was just bug fixes for Arc2


2 points by almkglor 4515 days ago | link

It's called "stable" ^^

That's a good idea, and I think that will eventually be how it will work. But I think it's too early for that : obviously, he wants to completely design & implement the core functions (alone) before working (and let other work) on libraries.
