With much fanfare, Hypnotoad proudly announces the next generation of the Tao runtime interpreter. Tao Version 8.5 is now a pure-tcl package.
The system is presently geared for the 8.5 interpreter, but if there is some interest I can backport most of the workings to 8.4. It removes the dependency on sqlite, and instead uses dicts for data storage. The system also makes use of the new namespace ensemble mechanism for singletons and method dispatch.
Tao is the underpinning for TDIF (a data interconnect system) and the new Tao-http system I will be presenting at this year's conference in New Orleans.
