What's cooking in the EDT kitchen? - July 30
In my previous post I told you that EDT 0.8.1 would be released last week. Unfortunately we missed that deadline. The code is fine (it was built ten days ago), but the intellectual property review will take two or three more days.
Meanwhile, we have been working on new features for EDT 0.8.2. They include a fully-extensible compiler. You may recall that this was prototyped during 0.8.1.
We're also adding classes. That's right, EDT will allow you to write object-oriented code! We're doing Java-style O.O.: single inheritance for classes, with interfaces providing abstraction.
