In case you haven’t been hanging out in our Discord or Slack channel or following Clojurists Together news, we’ve been accepted into the latest round of Clojurists Together! Many thanks to Clojurists Together and the backers who provide their budget. We’re also using OpenCollective funds to match our Clojurists Together grant—many thanks to our sponsors on OpenCollective!
You may have heard some updates from fellow awardees already—we opted for a delayed start and have been gearing up to make the most of our funds over the next six months.
We’ve been triaging old issues (over 90), and as a part of that process, we’ve already closed several stale or already completed issues, fixed 8 issues, and identified about 30 more that are good candidates for Clojurists Together. We’re not committing to finishing each and every one, but we do want to make a significant dent in the pile, focusing particularly on documentation, usability, and important fixes.
Probably the most exciting changes are merging and refining the long-awaited Kaocha parallelization feature and making Kaocha-cljs2 significantly easier to get started with.
We’re tracking our progress on a GitHub project. We’ll probably post at least one or two updates here on the Lambda Island blog. We’ll also be releasing improvements as we develop them, so you can also follow our projects to stay in the loop:
