[lucy-user] [ANNOUNCE] Apache Clownfish 0.5.0 released

Nick Wellnhofer-2

The Apache Lucy team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache Clownfish version 0.5.0!

The Apache Clownfish "symbiotic" object system pairs with "host"
programming language environments and facilitates the development
of high performance language extensions.

The main new features in Clownfish 0.5.0 are experimental support
for the Go language, an overhauled documentation generator, and a
substantial revision of the runtime API. Clownfish's new
documentation generator is based on Markdown which can be converted
to POD for Perl bindings and HTML or man pages for C bindings.
0.5.0 is also the first release that comes with complete
documentation of our C runtime API and most internals like the
Clownfish header file language.

The Clownfish developers continue to work on support for
additional host languages. The current status is:

- C (feature-complete)
- Go (experimental)
- Perl 5 (feature-complete)
- Python 3 / CPython (in progress)
- Ruby / MRI (nascent)

Help wanted! If you would like to contribute to Clownfish, please
