Aurora 1.0.0

December 7th, 2021

It started last September as a proof of concept of porting some of the Radiance ideas to the reactive programming model, and more specifically, into the Compose world. A couple months later, what started as Mosaic was then renamed to Aurora. I originally planned to be done by spring of this year, but things like these take a bit more time.

And now it’s here, the very first release of Aurora – a library for building modern, elegant and fast Compose Desktop applications. If you’re familiar with Radiance, you will see some of the same concepts in Aurora, especially around theming and projections. And if not, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what Aurora has to offer.

Radiance has been around for more than 15 years now, and I’m in it for the long haul for Aurora as well. I’d love for you to take this first Aurora release (code-named Arctic) for a spin. Stay frosty for more features coming to Aurora in 2022!
