  New Wollok Gramsci released!


Wollok 1.7.0 version is here, with several enhancements

  • properties concept allows to remove boilerplate code (no need for getters and setters anymore)
  • named parameters simplify object initialization (constructors still exist for more complex cases)
  • decimal numbers have now many configuration, such as how many decimal positions you want to use, decimal coercion strategy (rounding, truncating or error) and also how will a number be printed
  • great performance improvements to Wollok Game framework were made, many students will practice its UI interface this year
  • improved error reporting in console and tests
  • environment interface is minimalist without loosing functionality. User doesn’t get overwhelmed by a bunch of options he never uses.

Here you can check all issues solved for versions 1.6.7 (pre-release) and 1.7.0
