The State of Whirl

This is outdated! Any information found in this blog post may have been changed.

This probably won't come as a surprise to anyone, however, further development on Whirl has been halted.

Rust and TCP has been quite a pain to work with and I've been exploring other language candidates. Currently, I'm in the progress of performing a complete rewrite of Whirl in Go.

What does this mean for Whirl? This will be a considerable setback in terms of when Whirl will be considered stable. My estimates place Whirl to be stable for production near Q3 of this year (2021).

Once the Go rewrite is functionally equal to that of the current Rust implementation, I will be publishing the progress on Whirl's GitHub repository.
