~2018.2.5 Update

Galen ~ravmel-ropdyl, Jimmy ~haptyl-wanwes, and Chris ~sigtus-hossyn worked on the upcoming frontend overhaul, including the new homepage, the Collections and Streams apps, and the primer. Ted ~rovnys-ricfer and Anton ~pittyp-datfyn continued to work on Ford.

Curtis ~sorreg-namtyv worked on fixing the defaulting behavior in Hoon. “The future is not wonky,” he declares.

Keaton ~tonlur-sarret tested Isaac V's Fora implementation using his static ren/tree. It works.

Mark ~palfun-foslup gave a presentation at the FOSDEM open source conference in Belgium. Video can be found here.

Isaac V ~davtyr-nimren completed the initial version of the static ren/tree replacement. The Collections and Streams apps are now being built on top of this foundation. See the mve branch of Arvo to track development.

Paul ~fodwyt-ragful fixed a performance issue in unifying large nouns.

Iceman ~littel-ponnys's testing framework has been merged into master. To use the framework to write unit tests, see the user guide. This pull request also includes a Hoon port of Haskell's Prelude, which is now available as an alternate version of the Hoon standard library, including unit tests. Discussion of this subject can be found on Fora.

On Mars Talk Episode 19 (our 20th episode!) this week, Keaton and Ted explained Ford, Urbit's functional reactive build system.
