This is the second release of the Ceylon compiler and other command line tools.
You can read Stef's announcement here at the Ceylon blog. The major new features are:
- Java interoperability
- enumerated/algebraic types and switch/case
- first-class and higher-order functions
- support for remote module repositories and Maven repositories
A huge thanks to the Ceylon team for getting this release done on schedule while I've been taking a break from development! Thanks so much!
