Don't forget that if we choose to prioritize v2, it will be a pretty different language from the one Chris created. In any case we are assuming the rebrand, in our history page there will be plenty of space to honour Chris Mallet!

Because to don't change name is a suicide... be serious a little please... there is no progress...

Lexikos said that it is more than a language... So I propose to stay on "WASD" as "Windows Automation Script Development".
WASD clearly reference to autohotkey mindset and appropriate to gamer community, a behaviour with automation keyboard origin...
Development word is a large concept (go to a dictionnary, can be a tool (interpretor, program) or an action (grow, control), point of view), part of logo/icon can be a puzzle, a puzzle key or gear with one key, or just a big key with acronym inside it (pure as current H logo)
In my eyes, the only problem is that sound than "waste", and not wasd(ee)...

Also,
http://www.perl.org
http://www.python.org
http://www.lua.org
http://www.ruby-lang.org
http://www.squirrel-lang.org
http://www.java.com
http://www.php.net
http://www.tcl.tk
Aviable problem and current trends, so http://www.wasd-lang.org, with subdomain %var%.wasd-lang.org

I give to lexikos or finc or tank what I did in http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/9 ... ostumized/ if there is an interest (I have an other better version in computer, somewhere)

Do as you wish, just worried about how we continue...

AHS is epic I think that sounds like a good rebrand that is familiar to ahk

WASL also sounds good, or WASE (Windows Automation Scripting Environment)

Although cheezy HAK (HotAutoKey) or (Hot A Key) or (Hotkey Automate sKripting) or (Hot Automation Keys)

AHS WASL and WASE are the serious ones though ;)

I thought we had to discard the word "hot" ?
I forgot to say things about WASD, D for developement because of SDK meaning too. Autohotkey is not a full Kit, or a simple Program, or an Environement (maybe barrier language, ahk develops script like an interpreter, hotkeys develop automation action, we develop scripts, et caetera, it seems the best word to global all what that do).
Anyway, I guess Lexikos will arbitrate and decide name of his baby, my head will be cut :D

I have updated the list.

@Eedis: I did not add any of the lexikos related suggestions since Lexikos seems not to like this. I hope you are fine with that.

For those who wonder what speaks against Autohotkey2 (or any other direct super seeding of AHK) can find some arguments here. That being said, there are off course also good arguments for staying with an elaborated brand like AHK/v2, but it is important to face the drawbacks of staying in direct competition with autohotkey.com.

Haha, i just noticed...
If AHS = Automation. Hotkeys. Scripting.
Then AHS could also be: Auto Hotkey Script.
So AHScript... ? Lol
