I do get really excited every time your notes go online. It is great to see the language evolve that way.

Fascinating stuff. Full speed ahead.

Really cool that package symlinks look like they'll be replaced with a cleaner approach come 1.11.

I found it very interesting how the community package uix (https://github.com/localvoid/uix/blob/master/README.md) makes clear how it would benefit from the metaclasses and configurable imports DEPs.

Excellent, thoughtful write ups and process by the way.

The present and future of Dart is bright.

Some good stuff there.  I was surprised to see that Dart doesn't already have generic methods and functions but it is good to know that this is being thought about.

Had to chuckle when I got to the "Spaceship operator" section, since *I*
am the one who named that originally for Perl.

In writing, you can just get away with saying "the <=> operator", but
when teaching, I got really tired of saying "the less-than, equal,
greater-than operator", so I noticed it reminded me of the spaceship in
an old HP BASIC "star trek" game, so I started using that, and it caught
on, even finding its way into an error message, and thus becoming
official.

@Metronome  IIRC it was excluded primarily because it isn't too hard to use dynamic variables instead in instances where you would want generics.  You do lose some type safety, but it isn't nearly as painful as to deal with as you may think.
