  • v6.1.0 Changes

    May 29, 2018

    🔄 Changes since 6.0.0

  • v6.0.0 Changes

    February 22, 2017

    🔄 Changes since 5.8.6

    6.0.0 is a massive rework compared to 5.x. It now requires a C++14 enabled compiler

    Compiler Requirements
    • MSVC 2015 or greater
    • g++ 4.9 or greater
    • clang 3.6 or greater
    💥 Breaking Changes
    • 🏗 Instantiating a ChaiScript object now, by default, builds the stdlib in
      • This was done to address the most common support issues of loading stdlib dynamically at runtime
      • If you want the old behavior, use include/chaiscript/chaiscript_basic.hpp
    • 🏗 Headers have been reorganized to fully separate stdlib/parser/engine from each other (some faster builds)
    • Bootstrap functions no longer return a reference to the module added to (compile time savings)
    • It's now no longer possible modify AST_Nodes (compile time, runtime efficiency)
    • Function annotations no longer exist (simplifies code, reduces compile time, compile size)
    🆕 New Features Added
    • Modular optimization system; this can be accessed via the ChaiScript_Basic interface
    • Execution tracing capability; also accessed via ChaiScript_Basic interface
    • 🐎 range-based for loops for( id : container ) { } (much better performance than other loop types)
    • If-init expressions (ala C++17)
    • 👌 Support for passing r-value references to functions
    • 👌 Support for containing unique_ptr
    • ➕ Add helpers for exposing enum classes to ChaiScript
    • 👍 Allow typed ChaiScript defined functions to perform conversions on call #303
    👌 Improvements
    • Compile time improvements
    • Compile size improvements
    • 👀 Significant runtime improvements (see "Modular optimization system")
    • 📜 Significant parser improvements, both with parse-time and parser initialization time (Thanks @niXman)
    • 🛠 Fix type conversion to bool in conditionals
    👌 Improvements Still Need To Be Made
    • File location tracking has been rewritten; this currently means error location reporting is not as good as it was
    • ✅ Tracing capability needs to be tested and vetted
  • v5.8.6 Changes

    February 22, 2017

    🔄 Changes since 5.8.5

    • ⚡️ Optimize away return statements in lambdas also
