Items of Note

  • Github User d-led provided an example for Vaughn Vernons Domain Driven Design with Actors in Pony. This is a quite good comparison between the different actor system languages and libraries out there.
  • A new version of ponycheck, the property-based testing library for Pony, has been released. Version 0.4.0 brings partial Generators and some simplification of the Generator API, for more details, see the Release Notes.
