We are releasing the second patch release of the 1.6 series.
In this release we included 5 changes since the 1.6.1 release by 7 contributors. We thank all the effort put into improving the language! ❤️
Here we list most important fixes. For more details, visit the changelog.
The most important fix is a regression in the compiler which is now fixed. At the moment we don’t have a minimized version of what caused it, check the PR for details.
Windows and OpenSSL
The Windows package includes the OpenSSL 3 library. Since there was a recent security issue fixed in the latest version of OpenSSL, we updated it accordingly.
We have been able to do all of this thanks to the continued support of 84codes, Nikola Motor Company and every other sponsor. To maintain and increase the development pace, donations and sponsorships are essential. OpenCollective is available for that.
