purescript v0.14.3 Release Notes

  • ๐Ÿ†• New features:

    • ๐Ÿ“š Display kind signatures and their comments in documentation (#4100 and #4119 by JordanMartinez)

    The compiler now displays kind signatures for data, newtype, type synonym, and type class declarations in generated documentation. The compiler now also includes documentation-comments (i.e. those which start with a | character) both above and below the associated kind signature declaration (if any) in generated documentation, whereas previously documentation-comments above a kind signature declaration were ignored.

    Both explicitly declared and inferred kinds are included in documentation. The compiler omits including a kind signature in generated documentation only when the kind is considered "uninteresting". An uninteresting kind is defined as one where all of the declaration's type parameters have kind Type.
