Absolutely! cling was turned inside out several times, and now the core
is stable and functional enough that we wanted to go "public". C++ is
not C ;-)

Btw, the missing semicolon you refer to is our way of signaling that you
want to see the result of an expression.

We absolutely agree. Disabling of extensions is currently only partially

Thanks for your support back then that got us started, and for your
helpful comments now!

Cheers, Axel.
