CLI 1.0.0 released

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

The first public release of CLI is now available from the project’s web page. There are also the CLI Language Getting Started Guide and CLI Compiler Command Line Manual. I have created the cli-users mailing list, though I will still continue writing about the CLI design and development on this blog.

Check it all out and let me know what you think. One interesting implementation aspect that I would like to mention is the use of the CLI compiler to handle its own command line interface. As a result, it is always a good idea to keep an older, working build of CLI around ;-).

Looking forward, I now realize that one of the first new features in CLI should be the automatic documentation generation. In the next post we will start exploring various designs for this feature.
