Darklang Release 4 contains the changes from July 2022. Most of the changes this month were behind the scenes, aiming at releasing new type system, language, and editor features over the next few months. Nevertheless, we have a couple of nice features for you in this release including:

  • Dozens of standard library functions now have much prettier and more readable descriptions (shown above)
  • A new version of Result::fromOption that supports non-string errors
  • A new version of Bytes::base64Decode, which fails properly on invalid input
  • Dates in the editor were shown a few hours off, and now properly show UTC.

The detailed release notes are on our Changelog. Sign up or sign in to try it out.
