Yes, silent but happy!

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 
miss anything.

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!
