Overview

Ela Platform 2014.1 is a stabilization release that contains several important fixes to Ela compiler and Ela standard library. This platform also includes a new version of Elide, Ela interactive environment, and an updated standard library.

Ela changes

Ela contains an important bug fix to the monadic do-notation. Usage of pattern matching inside do-notation bindings could cause an internal compiler error; now this feature is fully functional. Also this version of Ela fixes a critical bug with default contexts; usage of default context in previous version could case stack corruption.

Elide changes

Ela Platform 2013.4 comes with a new version of Elide that includes a new tool pane 'Syntax Tree (AST)' and corresponding menu and context menu command for Ela editing mode. Now one can generate a graphical syntax tree from the entire source code file or selection. Source code is processed using standard Ela parser and displayed through a multilevel tree structure.

Library changes

Ela Platform 2014.1 comes with a completely rewritten formatting API (format function from string module) that is now more reliable and offers better performance.
