My plans for 0.83 include:
- Major improvements to the UI
- Compiler internals documentation
- Possibly the new array quotation interpreter, and phasing out cons cells
- Getting Factor running on Mac Intel
Going back and forth between UI and compiler work for each release seems to be the pattern for the last few releases. In 0.84, I will probably once again work on the compiler, and implement complex float intrinsics using SSE2 and AltiVec, as well as some new dataflow and template optimizations I've been planning out.
