That's devastating news. I've looked up to Roman ever since I first had the privilege to hear him speak about coroutines at the first KotlinConf. He's a great communicator, he has an incredible wealth of knowledge and expertise in language and library design, and it's obvious that his voice has been a huge driving force in making Kotlin what it is today. Roman, you'll be sorely missed.

is there any follow up?

What kind of follow up were you looking for?

I would expect some official statement/blog, with implications and future plans

@kqr We have a great team at JetBrains with over 150 people working on and taking care of Kotlin and its ecosystem. None of that changes and work continues as planned.
