It has been almost a year, but these week the Haxe Foundation released a massive new version of the Haxe Cross-platform Toolkit: Haxe 3.2
These are some of the new features I’d like to highlight:
- Introduction of a new compiler target: Python
- Added static analyzer with constant propagation. This leads to even more smaller and cleaner code! use
-D analyzerto activate it
- Highly optimized haxe.ds.StringMap
@:nativeon class fields. This allows to create nicer extern classes (definition files)
- Improved documentation generation
- Better auto-completion because of several updates the display-mode
- Improvements on pattern matching, abstract classes, macros, generics, casting and type checking.
- .. and much more optimizations and improvements! See full changelist here
You can already start playing with the Python target in the latest FlashDevelop.
Beside these compiler / language changes, the Haxe related website has gotten some very welcome face-lifts:
- New API docs website: api.haxe.org.
- New Haxelib website: lib.haxe.org.
- try.haxe.org uses 3.2 now too, and you can test this new analyzer.
- Also the Haxe manual has new content and getting more complete.
Haxe has become a solid language/toolkit for developers. Today it has more than 11.000+ commits on Github from a high skilled team with 70 contributors. This release again demonstrates the power and potential of a language that serves as the solution for cross-platform development.
I’m using Haxe for almost 2 year on daily basis, I’m really enjoying using it. It’s open-source, free and complete to do whatever you want on whatever platform 🙂
