So in the last couple of months following developments around Dotty wasn’t providing me with the excitement I experienced in earlier… years I think I can now say. This is an undoubtedly good thing, There are a lot of nice things packed in already and I’m glad to see that a lot of hard work is being invested into Dotty becoming stable and mature (so far as a major new version of a language can be), keep up the good work.
Still I just got this desire to peek into the more distant future. I can recall multiple occasions where where a suggestion was considered a good idea but due to well justified time constraints it was decided to be left out of Scala 3. Then I believe @odersky hinted at least once that Scala 4 might not be as far away as one could be led to believe extrapolating from the time gap between 2 and 3.
It would be nice to hear about what we can expect in both the mid and more far distance future, even if any enumerated change or time frame is going to be rather tentative.
