Dec 10, 2017Version 1. 2 of the statically typed Kotlin language, a version of Java endorsed by Google for Android app development, offers an experimental feature enabling reuse of code across platforms, as well as compatibility with the Java 9 module system. Where to get Kotlin 1. 2Kotlin 1. 2 is bundled with JetBrains IntelliJ Idea 2017. 3 IDE, which will be released by December 1. Users of the Android Studio IDE or an older version of IntelliJ can update to the new version via Tools > Kotlin > Configure Kotlin Plugin Updates.

Code to be shared between platforms is placed in a common module; platform-dependent parts are put in platform-specific modules. During compilation, code is produced for both the common and platform-specific parts. To read this article in full, please click here.

Among the changes that have landed since the release of version 1. 6 earlier this year:An entirely new storage format for the data accumulated by Prometheus. A new way for Prometheus to handle staleness, i. e. problems resulting when data reported by Prometheus doesnt match the actual state of the cluster. A method for taking efficient snapshot backups of the entire database.

Scripting languages slip in popularity

Scripting languages slip in popularity

Dec 10, 2017Prominent scripting languages, once viewed as the future of programming by offering ease of use, have slipped in the monthly Tiobe index of language popularity. Only Python and JavaScript still have some momentum. Languages that have seen their fortunes decline include Perl, PHP, and Ruby. Software quality services company Tiobes suspected cause is a desire among developers for higher quality than is afforded in scripting languages: Because quality demands are getting higher and higher, hardly anybody dares to write a critical and large software system in a scripting language nowadays. [ What is TypeScript? Industrial-strength JavaScript.  Keep up with TypeScripts frequent updates with InfoWorlds TypeScript version feature tracker. | What is Python? Everything you need to know. Tutorial: How to get started with Python. 6 essential libraries for every Python developer. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorlds App Dev Report newsletter. ]With scripting languages, most errors show up in runtime. And this is a problem, Tiobe says. Developers can write unit tests to compensate for this but it still is quite dangerous because these errors can happen while the application is in production. Statically typed languages, meanwhile, have responded to the threat of scripting languages by reducing type verbosity. To read this article in full, please click here.
