The first bugfix update for Kotlin 1.1 is here — its aim is to address regressions causing incorrect code generation.
JetBrains has just released the first bugfix update for Kotlin 1.1 — it mainly focuses on addressing regressions that cause incorrect code generation.
Let’s have a look at the changes worth emphasizing:
- Gradle incremental compilation is now enabled by default. You can still turn it off as described in the documentation if you need to.
- Kotlin plugins are now available in the Gradle plugin portal. See the documentation for usage instructions.
For more details, check out the changelog.
Enabling the use of Kotlin in many new scenarios
However, the star of this release is the support for coroutines — coroutines bring the support of
yield and similar programming patterns. The best part is that the implementation of coroutine execution is part of the libraries, not the language, which means users aren’t bound to any specific programming paradigm or concurrency library.
