by Mark Roseman - 'DejaNews:'' [L1 ]

More great business news from Scriptics. There were also several threads on development models for the overall community that are worth a read. Be sure to check out Paul Duffin's "stubs" mechanism noted below. Not online yet, but Usenix members should look for the January special issue of ;login: containing several Tcl articles (thanks Peter Salus!). What do you mean, not a member? Join!

  • John Ousterhout reports that Scriptics has closed a second round of financing, and brought in Linda Giampa as VP Sales. Plans are for a doubling of staff by this summer (see [L2 ])
  • Here is one of the threads discussing how the Tcl community is (and should be) operating, with respect to extensions (thread [L3 ])
