September 28, 2019sumtype 0.9.0: BetterC and DIP 1000 support
SumType is a generic sum type for modern D. It is designed to be an improved alternative to `std.variant.Algebraic`. Features: - Pattern matching, including support for introspection-based matching (★) - Self-referential types, using `This` - Works with `pure`, `@safe`, `@nogc`, `nothrow`, and `immutable` (★) - Compatible with `-betterC` and `-dip1000` (★) - Zero runtime overhead compared to hand-written C - No heap allocation - Does not rely on runtime type information (`TypeInfo`) (★) Starred features (★) are those that are missing from `Algebraic`. Code examples are available in the documentation (linked below). New since the last announced version, 0.8.3: - SumType is now fully compatible with DIP 1000 and BetterC! - `match` no longer ignores implicit conversions when matching handlers to types. - Assigning to a SumType that contains pointers is now (correctly) @system. - Self-referential SumTypes can now be nested. - Invariants of SumType members are now checked. - Static arrays in SumTypes are now copied correctly. - `match` now takes template overloads of handlers into account. - Numerous other bug fixes and improvements. Special thanks to George Zakhour for his contributions to this release.
