2016.32 A Quiet Week

Feels like many people are enjoying the nice weather. So a bit of a quiet week. Feels a lot like the quiet before the storm, though! 🙂

Core Developments

  • Jonathan Worthington squashed another set of concurrency related issues, e.g. making async sockets a lot more stable when under load.
  • TimToady improved several warnings / error messages, as well as improving on the efficiency of many common internal AST Node annotations.
  • TimToady also fixed a problem with loop and repeat not properly sinking (discarding generated values) by default.
  • Zoffix Znet fixed quite a few tickets related to error reporting and warnings.
  • Elizabeth Mattijsen made @a.splice($offset) about 40x faster and made sure Thai digits ("\x0e50".."\x0e59", AKA ๐๑๒๓๔๕๖๗๘๙) now smart increment/decrement correctly.
  • Many other smaller fixes and efficiency improvements.

Documentation Developments

gfldex reports again from the documentation effort:

  • Links to automatically generated pages got unbroken.
  • Documentation of role Setty got completed and examples fixed.
