ooh we had 9k visitors to the blog for the release post :)
I feel like we didn't get as many comments as usual (both on the blog or on social media)
I wonder if that means that people are just waiting for 1.0 :P

Will 1.0 support multiplatform?

I guess it depends on what we decide to call 1.0 :)
but I don't use a Mac and the Dropbox case doesn't need mac support, so for a while it'll probably be up to a contributor to figure out the issues :/

having some visibility on your intended roadmap would be nice

maybe the project needs more publicity and a bigger presence in social medias

I think Pyston should become fullly "workable" compiler first. People may doubt it will become second Unladen Swallow. (abandoned at last)

yeah I think good publicity can't hurt, but I think it's tough to keep people interested in a not-ready-to-use project
and we can definitely be more public about our plans :)
I just added something small to the readme, but the goal for 0.5 (ie plan for the next few months) is to become production-quality
so that we can start using it at dropbox
depending on how well we do at that, we might call it 1.0 :)
