Any chance of linking to the source repo, to accept patches. I've found a couple of nits in the documentation I could fix.

a really excellent article on a subject that mystified me - (and I'm an old guy who remembers punched tape 'telex' as the main communication channel between our company and it's Connecticut USA parent) - thanks so much for this Mr Akesson!

Is there a GitHub project for this? I noticed a couple of tiny documentation bugs that I would submit a PR for.

Also, what's the trajectory here: do you know what "feature complete" looks like, and what's the journey there look like?

I've been dabbling in IF for quite some time; As a coder (I work in Clojure) I prefer the Dialog syntax over Inform (as nifty as Inform7 can be).

Also your forums are broken; database error, can't register.

It's on the todo list. My own repo is intertwined with the development of Tethered, so I have to create a new, public repo with a clean history.

There's no detailed long-term plan, but I think the bulk of the functionality is already in place. The Å-machine needs to run on vintage hardware, as promised, and I'm currently working on that. I have some ideas for new bells and whistles, but the core Dialog language feels fairly stable, and will probably evolve in a backwards-compatible way. But I don't promise this until we get to version 1, which will probably happen when (if) people start to release stuff made in Dialog.

Huh, I haven't been able to reproduce this. Is it still broken from your end?

It's a Linux executable. Perhaps you could run it on a virtual machine.

Hello! Nice to meet you! Yes, I am alive and well. Just spending a little less time online for the time being. I'm mainly active in the Interactive Fiction community now, and this community is currently in IFComp mode, which means that everybody is busy with the games and has less time for idle chatter.
