#1372 Build 1.0.57

brian Thu 6 Jan 2011

I have posted a new build and updated the online docs.

This build has lots of bug fixes and a couple of nice enhancements. Big things to note:


I've made significant changes to the sql API. The key class is now SqlConn which models a logical JDBC connection. This API replaces the deprecated SqlService. For additional details:

The original APIs all continue to work exactly like before, however they have been deprecated and will be removed in build 58.

Additional Locales

Thanks to katox who wrote a script to generate sys locale files from Linux data files. We should now have basic date/time/number locale information for most major languages. For those of you living around the world, please take a look and let me know if your locales look okay.

New APIs

  • Added util::Random class with seeding support (popularly requested)
  • Added shutdown hooks to sys::Env
  • Date/Time locale formatting now fully supported in JS

Bundle Java classes in pod

You can now bundle Java classes into a pod for deployment. They have private visibility to the pod class loader. See:

Breaking Changes

There were some minor breaking change which might effect some code:

  • Removed deprecated slice methods which were replaced by getRange in build 56
  • Socket classes are no longer const
  • no longer supports binary reads
  • Tightened up compiler checks for as, null-safe operators
  • Use of comma operator requires add to be annotated as @Operator
