kurila 1.13 released


Values passed to subroutines and elements of an array or hash are no
longer restricted to being a scalar, but can also be arrays or
hashes. Making it possible to use complete data structures without
needing references.


Highlights:

+ Values can be any type
+ Expand operator "<"
+ Subroutines always return a scalar; "wantarray" keyword removed
+ New operators "nelems" and "nkeys"
+ Only Hashes can be tied
+ Scalars, arrays and handles can no longer be tied.
+ Forward subroutine declarations are no longer supported.

Known bugs:
+ Documentation
+ Extensive use of lists
+ Self referential assignment problems
+ Tied hashes with complex data
+ Limited platform support

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.

Standing on the shoulders of a red giant to face the future.
