purescript v0.8.5 Release Notes

Release Date: 2016-04-21 // about 6 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ†• New Features

    • Fast recompilation for single files in psc-ide-server #1712 (@kRITZCREEK, @paf31)

    The pscid project makes use of this to watch files as you work and raise errors and warnings when they occur with near instant feedback.

    • Operator aliases can now be declared for types #416 (@garyb)
      infixr 6 type Natural as ~>
    
    • Underscore wildcards can now be used in case and if expressions #1558 (@garyb)
      case _ of
        Something -> ...
    
      -- underscores can optionally be used in any part of an `if` expression
      cond = if _ then _ else _
      picker = if _ then "x" else "y"
    
    • Typed holes #1283 (@garyb)
      example :: forall a. Maybe a -> Unit
      example ma = ?umm
    
      Hole 'umm' has the inferred type
    
        Unit
    
      in value declaration example
    

    You can use any identifier name after the question mark and that will be used to label the hole in the raised error message.

    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking changes

    • ๐Ÿ“œ Type annotations may need parentheses in some situations that they previously did not due to the introduction of type operators. For example, x :: a == y will be now parsed as x :: (a == y) instead of (x :: a) == y.
