The principal change is that we wish to no longer support the Flapjax
compiler. More on that below.
As we discussed recently, we've been using Flapjax extensively:
These projects use Flapjax as a library, eschewing the compiler.
While the compiler affords some syntactic convenience, we find that we
rarely use it. For instance, Continue 2.0 has 200 calls to lift in
3,000 lines of code. Moreover, feedback we've gotten from other users
indicates that they, too, prefer to use Flapjax as a library, because
it provides greater flexibility and better integration with other
If anyone has significant objections to our dropping the compiler,
please do let us know! (If there are none, we can put out the new
The Flapjax Team
Breaks my heart, too. But the insularity of the current compiler
isn't a good thing. Ultimately we have to break down and do some
serious research to figure out how to smooth this integration. But a
research-less, naive compiler is not, I think, a good thing in the
