Update to the F# 1.9.3 Release

Hi all,

An update to the F# 1.9.3 release has been posted to the Microsoft Research Downloads site. Additional changes between1.9.3.7 and are:

  • Constructed classes may now be mutually recursive with other types, fixing an incompletness in the language implementation

  • The Microsoft.FSharp.Core.Func module is deprecated (this contained a few rarely used functions related to function values themselves)

  • The prefix operators “%” and “%%” have been added as ASCII-equivalent for Unicode section marker operators used for splicing into quoted expressions (i.e. for data binding into quotation expressions).

  • Some additional identifiers in Pervasives have now been marked with the ‘OCaml compatibility’ attribute. We recommend people cross compiling with OCaml use –no-warn 62. [ Note: this may be a bit verbose for those cross-compiling F# code with OCaml and using these APIs heavily. In the next release we expect this warning will be off for all files ending in extension “.ml”. ]

  • Bug fixes, including some installation and documentation bugs

  1. Actually, there are plenty of reasons why F# ((F == Functional) == True)) *ROCKS*. Here’s a few from the previously linked F# site on Microsoft Research, Combining the efficiency, scripting, strong typing and productivity of ML with the stability, libraries,..

  2. In a previous post , I’ve begun a pretty fun adventure into F# . I’m still working on quite a few samples
