I am very sorry that it has taken so long to update on the current status of ViviFire. I slowed down work for quite a while. But recently I have increased my work on the language a good bit.
I have been steadily improving the documentation. It's getting to an acceptable level, I think.
The implementation was lagging behind somewhat. However, that is changing, I hope.
I will be releasing updates to the source code on a semi-regular schedule. I will try to release updates twice a month. In fact, I just released an update today.

The home page is http://vivifire.com/.

A list of recent changes is coming soon.
