This Month in Mun - April 2021

May 08, 2021, The Mun Team

After the release of Mun v0.3 we are now looking at new features for the Mun v0.4 release. The biggest of which will be support for dynamically sized arrays.

Mun v0.3

This month was highlighted by the release of Mun v0.3. We expected to release Mun v0.3 within a few months of Mun v0.2 but this was pushed back a couple of times because we added more and more features to the release. Mun v0.3 adds support for modules & multi-file projects, a functioning language server which features autocompletion and a lot more. The Mun v0.3 release blog highlights all of the new features packed in this release.

Mun v0.4

Mun v0.4 will be the next release of the Mun programming language. After Mun v0.3’s delays, we concluded that from now on we will create smaller increments - with less features - so we are (hopefully) able to release faster and more often. As it stands the Mun v0.4 milestone is a lot smaller than our original Mun v0.3 milestone.

  • [RFC] dynamically sized arrays [PR#324]

    The next big feature for Mun will be support for arrays.

    To gather feedback and get everyone on the same page we opened an RFC pull request where we encourage everyone to comment on our design choices with regards to array support.

    We hope to merge this RFC soon so we can get to work on the actual development process of this long-awaited feature.

Interested in our progress or what we are doing next? Please check out our milestone page on Github that details new features for future releases - Mun v0.4 and v0.5 - as well as a backlog of features that are still to come.
