I have no concrete anticipation. It depends very much on the community. If 
there is notable interest and this interest makes people hacking on 
Grapefruit then it might not take so long until you can write real-world apps 
in Grapefruit.

I’m really interested in developing Grapefruit further. However, I also have 
to do a PhD, etc. and so I need others which help. But I will try to help the 
helpers as much as possible and also hack myself. Various immediate reactions 
to my release announcement make me hopeful that there might be indeed notable 
Grapefruit development from other people than me.

Best wishes,

P.S.: The “hack myself” might not be a typo but it’s maybe a funny blooper.
