MoonBit Update

  • Relaxed the syntax on the right-hand side of match, allowing the appearance of single statements. The following syntax is now permitted:
match x {
A => return
B => return 1
C => i = i + 1
D => break
E => continue
F => while true {}
}
  • Fix various bugs in the formatter, and resolve issues with missing curly braces and parentheses in the code after formatting. For example:
Original Code Before Fix After Fix
fn init {
let mut a = 1
{
{
let a = 2
f(a)
}
let a = 3
f(a)
{
let a = 4
f(a)
}
}
f(a)
}
fn init {
let mut a = 1
let a = 2
f(a)
let a = 3
f(a)
let a = 4
f(a)
f(a)
}
fn init {
let mut a = 1
{
{
let a = 2
f(a)
}
let a = 3
f(a)
let a = 4
f(a)
}
f(a)
}
  • Added a new experimental inline testing mechanism. The declaration format is fn test_*. Inline tests need to be declared in regular .mbt files (instead of _test.mbt). They must not have any parameters or return types. For example, the following usage will result in an error:

Now, moon test will not only execute each test file ending with _test.mbt in every package, but also perform inline tests within each package.

Plugin Updates

  • Fixed bugs related to newtype goto definition and rename.

Build System Updates

  • moon new now adds default values for various options, allowing users to select default values by pressing Enter.

  • moon.mod.json now includes license and repository fields. license indicates the license used by the mooncakes.io, which must comply with the SPDX standard.

  • Removed moon check --daemon.
  • moon publish now includes an upload size limit, the upload size must be less than 16 MiB.

Other

  • On the Windows platform, the installation path has been changed from ~/.moon to ~/.moon/bin, bringing it in line with other platforms.
