Looks like the nice folks at the Crystal project are celebrating a 0.7.0 release

I wish projects would realize how SEMVER actually works and stop being afraid of 1.0.0. I'm happy for their release, but man I don't need another project both pretending to be "in development" but talking as if you can use it in production.

@krainboltgreene to me opal is 1.0 from 0.3 which I had in production for several years

@elia we’re an open source democracy :heart:
@krainboltgreene I think 0.8 is going to be a last release before 1.0.0
I think it will be a quick release between them as well. a lot of the bugs are being hammered out at the moment

It's fine if you're not using SEMVER.

SEMVER with opal is tricky, as “ruby compatibility” is a moving target

It's not really. There's a place in SEMVER for that, it's called the metadata section.

So there's a project I started but never finished, called opal-starter-kit, The idea was to have a cmd line tool generate all the various configurations, so getting started w/opal would be 2 steps 1) install the gem 2) call the cmd line w/the desired config, and go. I'd take it another step further w/the visual tools I will build, but I'd start w/that. https://github.com/fkchang/opal-starter-kit
with the increased community activity, I thought it would be a good thing to bring up. Now we can tell people to run those 2 steps (after it works, I stopped working on it last year so it's certainly out of date)
