Orc Release 3.0#

Release Objectives#

Objectives under consideration:

  • Switch build system to SBT
  • Improve Orc modularity:
    • Must continue to be dead simple to run Orc as a first time user: Download one file and run just one command to compile and execute an Orc program.
    • Add ability to deploy a minimal runtime-only Orc implementation.
    • Add ability to mix our compiler and runtime with third-party compilers and runtimes. (Via better adoption of Java Scripting API and added adoption of Graal SDK Polyglot API)
  • Support OrcO
  • Support Polyglot/GraalVM
  • Improve parsers (potentially with parboiled), since Scala parser combinators are slow and appear unmaintained.
  • TBD


  • Orc compiler & runtime distribution (orc-3.0.0.zip)
  • Contributed sites distribution (orc-sites-3.0.0.zip)
  • Orchard (Orc as Web service) distribution (orchard-3.0.0.zip)
  • Orc 3.0 IDE support
  • Orc 3.0 User Guide and Orc 3.0 Reference Manual
  • Updated Orc Web site
  • Orc 3.0 Release Notes
