Message ID:
kurila 1.11 released

Perl Kurila 1.11 removes the ambiguity of "{...}" being a hash ref or
a closure, by introducing two new anonymous hash and array
constructors: "@(...)" and "%(...)".


New anonymous array and hash constructors: "@(...)" and "%(...)". The
anonymous array/hash ref constructors "[...]" and "{...}"  have been
removed. Thus "{...}" is never interpreted as a anonymous hash, but
will always create a closure/block.

Known bugs:
+ Documentation
+ Limited platform support
has a more complete list of the changes.

kurila 1.11 is released together with more than hundred modules,
available together at:

And should become available on CPAN.

git-clone git://

Perl Kurila is a dialect of Perl. With Perl 5 as ancestor it has a
solid base, but without the backwards compatibility
requirement of Perl 5, it is free to evolve into new directions.
