I'm not a really 'heavy' ACE user, but more of a programmer
I was wondering if the ACE development team has any thoughts on dynamic .NET typing, and the (new) dynamic languages in the .NET Framework (for instance: IronPython and IronRuby (discontinued for now ). In my thoughts, using dynamic languages/dynamic typing can be of great importance to a product like ACE.
Also, what are your opinions on using functional languages with ACE (like F#). With the type of calculations ACE is meant to do, this could also be of importance to future development.
I would find it useful to have insight to the near-term roadmap that OSI has for ACE and AF - such as if, when, and where any of their complimentary or overlapping functionalities will converge (or not). This could help sway solution architecture decisions being made today...
