What Happened in 2017?

Oops, 2017 went by without a blog post! What happened?

Not a lot…

  • The interactive Brat shell works again!
  • More unboxed operations on numbers
  • Single-quoted backslashes finally parse correctly
  • More tracking of types during compilation
  • Symbols (:blah) are now immutable, again
  • Create prototype objects on demand
  • This works: x.y = {}()
  • Fix nested comments and semicolons in comments
  • Updated LuaJIT

Overall, Brat is another year older, and a little bit faster!
