Items of note

  • We just reached the magical number of 100 contributors on the ponyc repository. Thanks to everyone of you for bringing Ponylang to its current shape!
  • In case you missed the Pony development sync of September 13th 2017. The audio recording is available for your listening pleasure. Highlights this week are jemc and praetonus hunting down a bug in ponyc (thrilling!), jemc talking about the ponycc compiler design and someone trying to be sean (and failing miserably).
  • RFC 46 - More Random Methods has been implemented and will be available with the next release of ponyc.
