Pest: Prototype

There is already one prototype implementation of the Pest spec available for use and testing. Codenamed "Blatta" ("cockroach" in Latin), this prototype is written and maintained by thimbronion (WOT: thimbronion) and implements a large subset of the current spec. This prototype is a work in progress and is updated regularly. For more detailed information, please review the Blatta release notes. There also exist channel logs for the proto-pestnet if you are interested in following along, although due to the not 100% reliability of the network and logger the main discussion around Pest development is happening in #asciilifeform on dulapnet1 (mirror).
