Last month, Our Project Leader Daniel Compton spoke about Clojurists Together at the Bay Area Clojure Meetup, and at the Clojure NYC Meetup. It was great to be able to meet people and talk about Clojurists Together with the community.

Fireplace update

May 1 - 15

This first period has been been lots of housekeeping and bug fixes. Much of it has been centered on the relatively small bit of Python code used for the nREPL network connection, which has needed attention to Python 3 support now that Python 2 is finally starting to disappear in the wild.

I also did a spike on async job support and determined it is indeed viable. It's not pushed yet but most of the associated refactoring is.

Raw list of commits:

May 16 - 31

This time around is more of the same: assorted housekeeping and async job progress. I've finished my "low hanging fruit" pass through the issue tracker and have cut a maintenance release. With a little luck, I'll have the initial job support on master by the next update.
