Most software is full of bloat, and features that never get used. Lysa will have the essential functionality, and will be laser focused on making those features work well.
We all know that the computers in our pockets can out-perform the supercomputers from a few years ago. We also know that those pocket-supercomputers feel like they're running in mud. Lysa won't be shipping with any mud.
In the beginning...
Lysa started as a C project on Linux. For a little over a year, it was made from scratch with a long development future ahead. It became clear that finishing it would take many years, and may never get done.
In the interest of creating a tool that we can all use in our lifetimes, Lysa is now built using the LLDB API, and Qt5.
