some more background information is available here:
nice news and nice work! Wonderful that somebody still has interest in
I see interesting choices in your runtine... It looks mostly an
evolutive step of classic Objective-C without the uglyness of
Objective-C 2.0 which then became Swift and which took the verve away
You decided not to pursue the horrible dot notation, for example. It
looks something linke version 1.5, although that would mean an
intermediate step: better another name, since it will never become 2.0,
but more a parallel, different direction.
I wonder whom it should appeal? Old-timers like me stick with obj-c
"classic" to be able to be compiler-independent and because it is
essentially enough. I'd like "new" things, but those would be quite hard
to do and would perhaps need both a new runtime and a new Foundation
(e.g. I'd like to use inegtral types as real objects, so not to have to
convert from and to when using NSArrays, more small-talk essentially.
Those instead who love(d) Obj-C 2.0 either stick with it or jumped to
Swift because they just like the latest thing
Anyway, interesting news!
