Personally I like where it's going. They seem to be cleaning up the language. This will help a lot for new programmers looking for a great back-end language to learn.
I like the fact that we get procedural and object oriented options when programming. It would be even better if all the functions where available in both ways.
I hope the language keeps moving forward in the future.

We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
