Congrats on completing your PhD and the new startup venture!
Is really good to know that Stanza is still actively being developed.
I'm also very much interested in using Stanza on hardware programming and design automation, and also currently evaluating D language for this kind of functionality:
A few questions regarding this matter and others:
1) Just wondering is there any particular reason(s) why Stanza is highly suitable for this kind of exercise (hardware design) ?
2) Does Stanza supports Lisp style CLOS object?
3) Does Stanza supports the classic OO design with class?
Another question is regarding the REPL work in progress:
4) Does the REPL will include the venerable UPDATE-INSTANCE-FOR-REDEFINED-CLASS function as supported in the original Lisp?
