Subject Status of GPars
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2019 18:55:36 GMT

I have come to the decision to stop working on GPars. I have done very little
over the last year anyway, there has been no interest at all from the Groovy
community, and I am not doing much with Groovy or even the JVM these days –
except perhaps some Kotlin for writing the DLanguage CLion plugin.

Clearly the GPars organisation is there on GitHub, with multiple owners, as is
the source code. So there is no threat to the code, other than it is moribund
and other solutions are overtaking it. In particular Quasar, Kotlin
Coroutines, and Project Loom, are likely the future for much of the stuff in
GPars. GPars still has features not available elsewhere on the JVM, but it has
lost all momentum as a project.
