F# 1.1.5 now available



I’m glad to announce that F# 1.1.5.2 is now available for download from Microsoft Research.  This release contains a mix of new features and bug fixes, at least some of which will be useful to nearly all F# users.  The highlights are as follows:


·         Intellisense Interactive XMLDoc Help.   


·         VS 2005 RTM support. 


·         Major correctness and performance improvements to F# Interactive (fsi.exe).   


·         64-bit support.  F# compiler, F# Interactive and F# for Visual Studio now run correctly on x64 and ia64 machines.   


·         Matrix Library


·         Named arguments for attributes.


·         Abstract properties and properties in interfaces (missing from last release)


·         Compositional, Customizable Structured Printing. An approach to user-definable structured display of terms has been implemented in this release.


·         Bug Fixes.


As usual the detailed release notes and known issues are on a separate page.  These actually correct some badly formatted HTML in the change list in the README in the distribution, so you should consult these instead of that change list. 


 


(Note – new documentation for the F# library will soon be hosted on research.microsoft.com)


 


Have fun!
