Pluggin' some (specification) leaks in Eightebed

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Eightebed version 1.1. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Kind of mellow, with hints of strawberry and creosote on the back of the tongue. And that ring is even nicer when you realize that this update fixes the definition of the language to make it fulfill its original purpose. The concept of the safe area has been limited to statements in a block before the first free statement, thus preventing the creation of aliased dangling references. Thanks to Gregor Richards for pointing out this hole. Also included: a handful of bug and documentation of fixes that you don't care about.
