The NLnet sponsorship structures our work process in so far that we release a new version every month, now. So here is the second public release of the Perspectives Distributed Runtime. In the current state of the project there is not much to run, alas. However, it is now possible to use the software to parse an ARC model file on the command line. It will output the JSON serialisation of the internal representation of the types contained in the ARC file. This goes to show some progress: the language is no longer just something on paper, it is parsed and partly checked and transformed. Soon the runtime will be a program that can actually be run. We will then publish a little user interface, so you can play a bit with it. Watch this space!
