Dylan is in an unusual position for a programming language.
It has a pretty mature implementation, a specification, and a lot of high quality documentation. It has a long history and many people remember it from the early days of its history when it was being developed at Apple and other institutions.
On the other hand, the current community is fairly small as is the available set of libraries. This is typically a disadvantage, however it can be used to the community's advantage in a couple of ways.
One way is that we can look forward and take advantage of what we know and want now without having to worry about backward compatibility.
There are comments.
