This was causing problems before, as programs which should type-check were failing and vice-versa. To resolve this, the type system has been reimplemented from . . . → Read More: Whiley v0.3.10 Released!

This was necessary because, whilst my old implementation generally worked, writing larger programs exposed a lot of issues. The most interesting aspect of this process is the development of a general-purpose library for representing and manipulating tree . . . → Read More: The Whiley Automata Library (WYAUTL)
With the upcoming v0.3.10 release of Whiley, the way import statements are interpreted has changed in a fairly significant manner. The primary purpose of this is to give better support for [[Namespace (computer science)|namespaces]]. The following illustrates what’s changed:
import whiley.lang.Math bool check(int x, int y): return max(x,y) == x
