I'll continue nagging. For the moment I can only suggest: post to
address@hidden and follow comp.lang.sather - that way you don't

That's what we are doing (Actually, Keith is doing the most work, I'm
about tidying everything up a bit for the gnu release...)

1.3-beta-3 is working and about finished here on my machine. I'm just
waiting to get my gnu login working again to put it up for download. If
the login should not work tomorrow, I'll put ip somewhere else and tell
the world about it.
I don't know yet how stable that will proove for normal use, and I have
even less idea, when the new library will reach the stability of the
old one, so we can call it the "most official" release. From there, it
will then still be some way to go for a real "stable" release...

We are not really touching the compiler any more than necessary to keep
it running. The code is so rotten that any debugging is a pain. Anyhow:
Keith is still about designing a new compiler. It will be a very
long-term goal, but that's much more worth than spending any time on
the existing compiler.

??? That port is not in the code at all!
