Roadmap

AluVM development roadmap, which include technical specifications, standards, reference implementation, language-specific wrappers, programming languagues and toolchain, is managed at .

AluVM implementation

The current version of reference AluVM implementation, written as Rust library, embeddable into specific runtime environments, is 0.3.
We are targeting 1.0 release until the end of the year. The release must cover the following functionality:
  • Instruction set arthitecture design
  • Reference implementation in Rust
  • Floating point operation implementation
  • Virtual machine and control flow implementation
  • Separation of code & data segment
  • Library management & packaging
  • ISA extensions support
  • Core cryptography implementation (digests, Secp256k1 operations)
  • LNPBP standards and specification writeup
  • Complete implementation of arithmetic operations for domain-specific floating types: BFloat16 (machine learning), IEEE binary256 and 512-tapered float (near-arbitrary precision float arithmetics)
  • Complete implementation of complex byte-string operations
  • Implement operations on Curve25519
  • Complete test coverage of the reference VM implementation

2022
  • AluREX library & package distribution website
  • Write WASM bindings for AluVM library
  • Create C bindings for AluVM library
  • LLVM cross-compiler
  • Parsel language specification & compiler
