Syllable, AtheOS

Kristian Van Der Vliet has implemented asynchronous input/output. This has been tested with QEmu, which shows increased performance both due to this and the also new implementation of memory-mapped files. A development build with async I/O is already available.

The work we've done recently means that JamVM will soon be running. Although that doesn't mean we'll have a complete set of runtime classes, and anything GUI related is obviously not going to work on Syllable yet.

Hi Vanders,

It's always interesting to read your posts on here and nice to see what you have to say.

One thing I occasionally wonder is whether there might some day be a bounties system for Syllable - do you have any thoughts on this? I don't honestly know how well, especially for a relatively small project, these things work but it is something I've occasionally searched for in the past.

Do you have any thoughts on this?

Cheers,
Mark

I've always disliked bounties. I'd prefer people contribute because they want to, not because there might be money in it.

I also have concerns that any work that is contributed under a bounty may prove difficult to maintain once the original developer has collected the money: maintaining stuff as Syllable grows is already a problem due to the sheer amount of work involved.
