Hello All,

Will we see a new release of Euphoria this year?

Sadly, no.

At this point, it seems as if Phix will become the true successor to Euphoria.

It already is. All that's left is to change the name of the forum and the download links, but see

I was checking download versions of Euphoria. I noticed that the latest current stable build was 4.0.5, it was released 2012. That was 5 years ago. I'm just wondering if Euphoria 4.1.0 or whatever version is coming next will see the light of day? I'm not trying to dis Euphoria or anything, but when it hasn't been updated in this long, I mean you gotta suspect something else will come along.

I think it already has - Phix.

I know this topic has also been brought up before in various ways, but it does get a little alarming when something hasn't been updated in so long.

The problem is that there's no one left from the release team. Shawn has been gone for months, Ira/Jerome even longer. Matt does check in to lurk, but rarely participates so there's not much hope there. The only other person is Jeremy (who has been gone for years).


So, unless an existing dev decides to branch into new (and now newly-made unexplored) territory and figure out how the release process works, or we get a new member willing to look into this, it's simply not possible to get a new release.

Everyone agrees it should be done and that we're ready, but there's no one left to do it.

My request to form a new strike team to look at this turned up zero takers:

It'd be nice to have at least a final release, of the latest code of what's been committed to git, but this isn't going to happen for the same reasons as why there have been no regular releases. The last code change occured over half a year ago, see and

I will officially (and unilaterally) announce the retirement of the current OE codebase and the adoption of Phix this Saturday.
