F# CTP release update

It’s been a week now since we posted the F# September 2008 CTP release, and it’s been fantastic to see the great response from existing and new F# users alike. We’ve received a lot of good feedback too, and a big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to email us with suggestions and issues.

Taking into account this feedback, today we posted a minor update to the CTP release that addresses some of the issues (this replaces the original release and uses the same download link). For example,  support for units of measure on decimal types was limited in the first CTP release, and this has now been addressed.


The specific issues addressed are listed in the detailed release notes for the CTP. The new version number is Happy programming!


[ note: at the time of writing the version number on the download page was still saying, though the actual MSI or ZIP reached via the download button is ]

    It seems like this update broke the nifty new Go To Definition right-click command. At least, I can’t get it to work anymore…

    I just wrote y’all a love letter — http://exerciseforthereader.wordpress.com/2008/11/25/arithmetic-specialization/ — I’m amazed and delighted at the quality and level of integration in F#! I’m back to playing with some concepts I’d had to abandon years ago after leaving CMU and the PSciCo project (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~pscico/). It’s spectacular to be able to work in a high level language and still talk to the real world (3D graphics, COM, etc.) when you need to.

    Thank you so much!!
