During the regtests for 1.0 alpha, I found a problem in the logic of the definition of numeric items. More precisely, there was a bit of confusion between the definition of integer, floating point and generic number, when checking not the type of the item, but its metaclass . While this has little impact on common scripts, I decided to take the occasion to fix the logic behind this, and possibly add an hook for the introduction of arbitrary precision math later on.
Currently, I am studying different alternatives of expressing different numeric types under a single metaclass. It's one of those things that takes much more time to plan than to iimplement, and it's the last step before 1.0

Of course, any help is appreciated.

From what I understand, there was progress on the new version of Falcon which is in Alpha (the new_engine branch in git) until around 6months ago:

As there is no more progress I decided to not use Falcon in the end as an embedded scripting language, at least until there is more traction.
Giancarlo Niccolai does almost all the new devs and it's very hard to do that alone on such a big project (I did that too in the past)
so I think it's ok to rest from such effort.

That being said, my understanding is that the new_engine branch is usable so you might want to try it. Although the main issue is the documentation.

I can't tell if the Falcon project is still alive, or worth learning. The last version of the language was 5 years ago, so I'm just curious.
