    Starting a new thread to get an update of available tooling, simulator, compilers, etc.

    Nothing available yet to the public. Internally the specification, conAsm, and sim have been stable for a while, while the rest of the tool chain is struggling as we convert all our development environment to LLVM-related tools: CVS to git etc.

    The gating event for public release will actually be the patents; we can’t put out a sim that shows how things work until the filings are in for those workings. And the tool chain without the sim is pretty useless. We had hoped to have it all done and ready for the public already – but you know how development goes, and it’s doubly true for a bootstrap.

    Please be patient. We are impatient ourselves enough for all 🙂

    bi-yearly check on progress… anything releasable yet?

      Barely usable by us, and certainly not ready for anyone else. Of course, you could convert to the “us” category 🙂

        I will be happy to explore various paradigms and compiler approaches. I doubt I will be of much use with the low-level design; rather I will be trying to absorb/learn as much as possible. My interests would be in the Forth approach we discussed last year and anything related to Haskell. I may also be interested in assisting with low-level BIOS/drivers, but I have less experience and will need a mentor for that.

        Fair disclosure: I would consider the Mill to be a part-time project due to job/family/time considerations.
