We have finally released the first Ensō paper:
Managed Data: Modular Strategies for Data Abstraction (Ensō Papers 1 of 6)
Alex Loh, Tijs van der Storm, and William R. Cook
This is just the first of 6 or so papers we are working on. Next up will be grammars, then interpreters, GUIs (diagrammatic and text-oriented), web applications, and case studies. We are focusing the papers on functional features of the system, but there are other concepts that are woven throughout, including bootstrapping, self-description, security, optimization, analysis, composition and modularity, etc.
