I’m sorry to admit that I let the Clojure Atlas wilt a bit over the past year or so. (I was a little busy!) However, I am conversely quite happy to say that that’s over now; Clojure Atlas has been refreshed to add editions for Clojure v1.3.0 and v1.4.0.
(If you don’t know what Clojure Atlas is, head on over and check out the snazzy new demo/tour video.)
Other highlights include:
I think the previous pricing was too high. (You never know until you try.) Pricing has been lowered, and I’ve added a fun option whereby you can get any edition of Clojure Atlas for just $5. I don’t quite know what I’ll end up doing for upgrades going forward, but you will definitely be able to stay current without paying the full boat each time.
Between the too-high pricing and the far-too-long period between the initial release of Clojure Atlas and now, those that prepaid for access to the Clojure v1.3.0 Atlas how have access to all of them, up to and including v1.4.0. Those early significant supporters will also get free upgrades to all future Clojure Atlas revisions. Thanks, guys and gals.
If you only purchased the Atlas for Clojure v1.2.0 previously, your account has been upgraded to include the Atlas for v1.3.0.
Aside from the obvious additions that needed to go in to reflect changes in Clojure v1.3.0 and v1.4.0, the ontology has been improved significantly to be more comprehensive and more accurate. In addition, I’ve started adding detailed documentation (for example) to subjects/nodes within the ontology that I’ve added (in contrast to vars, which in general already have documentation of their own).
The graph visualization is certainly far from perfect, but I’ve tweaked it a fair bit to get it to “settle” faster than it did before. I’m also pondering a complete reworking of the visualization to make it deterministic (rather than using a particle simulation as it does now).
No more PayPal
Many people balked at using PayPal — and believe me, no one is happier than I to be rid of it at this point. Payments are now all handled courtesy of Stripe, which has been a dream to work with.
