I wasn’t quite sure where to post this, so I hope this is the right place. Please let me know if I should move it elsewhere.
I heard about Crystal a couple years ago and, being a Ruby dev, I have been following it’s progress with much interest ever since. I’m considering starting a personal project with it, but saw feedback somewhere that Dev Teams are reluctant to widely adopt Crystal because it has been in dev for 6 (or 7+) years and hasn’t hit version 1 yet. Which is reasonable, but also made me curious.
Is there any way to see what it would take for Crystal to hit Version 1 and how far off (in terms of issues/features, not time) it might be? I’ve considered contributing, but I’d like to help in a way which would be most valuable towards getting to Version 1
This language seems very promising and I’d love to see it grow as large as a lot of other languages out there.
