Lango programming language vDemo2

On Christmas Day 2014, Kerinova released the second demo build of the Lango programming language. This build has numerous improvements and added features over Demo 1, including Integer operations, and Lango->C# convertibility.

Release Notes:

  • Save command history to a .txt file from the interpreter
  • Base for converting communal code to C# code
  • int is a synonym for integer and number
  • Integer operations var + var or 5 + 5
  • Interpreter can be called via command line to interpret a code file
  • Removed speech from cint
  • Fixed bugs and improved performance

Known Issues:

  • Lango will always report that files are saved correctly
  • Not all Communal code is converted to C# code
  • C# code is not formatted correctly

Going into the new year, a lot of focus is going to be placed on Lango, and much work will be done. The plan is to continue releasing demo builds until 1.0 is feature complete. At that point the language will be open sourced, and beta will begin.

Wrapping up 2014

Wide Kerinova Logo
This was a big year for Kerinova.

We released our first two apps, Nova Time and Nova Recorder, we released a demo of a new programming language (more to come on that front), and it will only get better from here.

While Nova Time and Nova Recorder have received their last updates of 2014, they are not finished yet, and will continue to be updated next year. I plan to incorporate user feedback into updates for the app, and will update them to support Windows 10.

The Communal Day 1 Demo 1 was released this summer, and there is still more to come from that project. A Communal Demo 2 will likely be released before the year is out, or very early next year. That build will include numerous new features, including the base for the ability to convert Communal code to C#. Communal will continue to be updated throughout 2015.

In addition to all that, we have more exciting projects that will debut next year.

Thank you so much for reading. 2014 was a great year, but 2015 will be better.
