In the process of writing the paper:
I came to the conclusion that a complete rewrite was in order, generating to byte-code (rather than llava’s threaded-compiler/interpreter). But about that time clojure came into existence, which obviated any further work on llava.
I have not done any development of llava in a long time. However, I still have lots of personal projects written in llava and I start it up occasionally to try quick experiments involving Java.
