Boo 0.9.1 is here!

Just after two months of the huge 0.9 release, here is Boo 0.9.1 - bringing more new features and bug fixes.
Highlights of this release are:

  • Macro definition arguments [BOO-1146] - macro definitions can define typed arguments as with any method definition.
  • Nested macros extensions [BOO-1140] - nested macros no longer have to be defined within their parent macro block.
  • Omitted expression for member references [BOO-1150] - `.foo' is now equivalent to `' by default. This behavior can easily be changed by a macro or compiler step.
  • Volatile fields [BOO-806]
  • TypeSystem refactoring - brings cleaner API and faster compilation (-30% time)

Take note that from now on strong versioning is used on Boo releases, this release assemblies are versioned `'.

Contributors to this release: Cedric Vivier, Daniel Grunwald, JB Evain, Rodrigo B. De Oliveira.
