Finally, it’s time for yet another release. The main change with this release has been a reworking of the compiler framework into a more serious build system called, unsurprisingly, the Whiley Builder System (wybs). This has helped integration with both Ant and Eclipse. However, there remain a few aspects of it that need improvement, most notable performance and dependencies. Nevertheless, I’m very pleased with how the structure of the Whiley compiler is progressing.
- Deployed the new Whiley Build System, which provides a generic framework for managing namespaces and package roots. This is currently lacking good support for dependency tracking, but it should be easy enough to extend to support this.
- Fixed quite a few bugs, and have identified quite a few more to be fixed.
