Wednesday 19 May 2004 Does Mango still live?

A recent mail -
To: Jez
Subject: Mango Status?

Greetings:

I came across your website some time ago.  I am the author of a similar
libary, jga, found at

http://jga.sf.net/

I'll be speaking at the next JavaOne on applying functors to desktop
programming, and one of my slides lists the available functor-based
libraries that I have been able to find.  I thought I'd touch base with
you to find out what the status of Mango is at this point.

Is this still an on-going project?

We certainly seem to have been be working along similar lines.  I 
knew somebody had to be somewhere :)

It's still on-going in as much as I haven't stopped working on 
it.  I just haven't been working on it, if you see what I mean.
The library started as a result of some other work I was doing 
at the time, and I've added to it in dribs and drabs over time.  
Checking now, it has been some time. 

Over the last year or so, I've done much less work in Java and 
rather more in C++, so the motivation to work on it hasn't been 
there.  I'll no doubt come back to it at some point.  Simply 
receiving this mail may prod me a bit.

Best, 
Jez
