It seems to mostly be on new language features (iterations,
generators, unifying types and classes).  I think this effort is
mostly misplaced; raw language features are rarely a reason to choose
one language over another, the availability of libraries being a more
critical issue.  Sadly the development team seems to have forgotten
this.
