AI Developer Advocate


Modular is getting ready for the first Mojo 🔥 release of 2024! There are a number of features coming, including new types for Python and Rust fans, improvements to the LSP, and far improved variadic lists taking advantage of the early implementation of lifetimes. That's right, lifetimes are coming! They're still in an early state, but you'll be able to experiment and give feedback as we build them into the stdlib.

Many more bug fixes and improvements are coming, stay tuned for the update announcement!
