What's cooking in the EDT kitchen? - December 17

EDT version 0.8.2 is nearly finished.  We're running extensive tests and fixing bugs.  Progress has slowed down a bit since many of us are taking time off for the holidays, but everything should be finished by the end of January.

What's cooking in the EDT kitchen? - December 4

We're working on the fourth milestone of the EDT 0.8.2 release.  Here's what we accomplished in the last week: 


  • Work continued on the bytes type.
  • More work was done to support classes.
  • We made a language design change to solve a problem related to assigning an array to a variable of a different type. When you write array as SomeType[], we'll create a copy of the array.  The as expression may be implicit, which happens when you assign one kind of array to another.
This is a fairly short list, but we also fixed many bugs.
