Hey folks, since several people have spoken up about the lack of movement on the project, I thought I'd give a quick update.
We've got plenty of people who are interested in seeing this project move forward - unfortunately, few willing or able to help with the actual development. I had hoped to pick up at least one or two other developers by now. This project is sufficiently audacious that I can't hope to achieve the goals I set for it by myself, in the time I have available for it. I'm happy with the work that's been done so far and I'd like to see it continue. If/when other developers start contributing, I'll be happy to get back to work on it. Until then, my contributions to it will be spotty.
So, if you know some C++ and you'd like to see this forward, let me know!
If you're interested in language development and you're willing to try something new, you can also check out another project I'm involved with, Crack: http://code.google.com/p/crack-language/
