You read it right and it was about time!
Boo 0.9.2 is mostly a maintainance release, yet it introduces a few new features worth highlighting :
- Unsafe code support including pointer manipulation for richer interoperability with native code [BOO-1202]
unsafe ptr as long = astruct: *ptr = 0 ++ptr
- Generic array/matrix constructors [BOO-1203]
a = array[of int](3) #creates an array of 3 ints m = matrix[of int,int](3,3) #creates a 3x3 int matrix
- Literal regular expression options [BOO-1237]
/boo/i.IsMatch("BOO") #case-insensitive match
- Boo now runs on medium-trust environments [BOO-1215] (such as Mosso ASP.NET platform)
On top of the usual bunch of bug fixes (see the ChangeLog), this release significantly improves generated IL, resulting in up to 40% leaner assemblies among other performance improvements.
