The Kotlinx.coroutines repo hasn't been getting any love for a month+ now. Any idea what's going on? It looked like MPP work was progressing, but hasn't been touched for a while now.

I can tell you they released a 0.23-dev1 version on Bintray the past week. Also, look at other branches. There's still activity. I expect big things this year (like improved MPP, JS Channels, Kotlin/Native support, new features like better actors).

We’re actively developing new features and stabilizing existing ones. Note that changes are not pushed to
master
branch, but to
develop
, which is merged to
master
only before the release

MPP: next release will have proper channels/select/produce builders for JS, Native is still in development

Don't suppose javascript will get a
runBlocking
with that release?

Nope. It’s not clear how to implement
runBlocking
on node.js at all, because there is no ability to block the thread (and no such abstraction)

@spierce7
runBlocking
on a single threaded environment is like asking for a deadlock
