[gambit-list] Gambit-C and LambdaNative on Windows Phone?

Hi Leif,

It's great to hear that you are giving Gambit and LambdaNative consideration for
development within your company. LambdaNative does not currently support Windows 
Phone 8 though. I'm confident that Gambit Scheme itself will build for it, and there is 
some interest in making LambdaNative run on it as well. Personally I'd like to see 
LambdaNative support all the major mobile operating systems. With the arrival of 
the NDK in WP8 it should be possible to make that happen. We would just need to 
write a DirectX rendering backend, and figure out how to drive the windows build 
from our command line model. At this point however, there are no definite plans for 
making that happen.

Hello all,

the company I'm working at is evaluating some technologies for
multi-platform development for smart phones, tablets etc. So far, we've
eliminated most of the choices, with only LambdaNative, PhoneGap/Cordova
and Kivy remaining. No actual experiments have been done so far, no actual
phones bought, only theoretical thinking-about-what-the-net-says. I'm the
team's biggest Scheme proponent and know both JavaScript and Python, while
all the other devs would have to learn another language, no matter which
solution we choose. So here's the big question:

Can I use LambdaNative to deploy to Windows Phone 8, or are there any
plans to support it in the not-so-far future?

Best regards,

Leif Bruder
