Programming Language v0.4.3 Released

After 40 days of development published the new version of a static programming language v (vlang). The main goals in creating V were the simplicity of study and use, high readability, rapid compilation, increased safety, effective development, cross-platform use, improved interaction with the language C, the best processing of errors, modern features and more convenient support for programs. The code of the compiler, libraries and related tools open under the license mit.

  • Type of int is identified from I64 to 64-bit platforms and from I32 to 32-bit (beginning of the transition).
