We are very proud to announce Nim version 1.4 after six months of continuous development! Other than version 1.0, this is probably the biggest Nim release yet and we’re very excited to release it!
It contains exactly 900 new commits which have not already been backported to our previous versions. There are several new features and standard library additions compared to 1.2. We tried to keep breaking changes to a minimum, but some bugfixes weren’t possible without making those necessary changes, and we feel that our users will benefit from them.
We would recommend to all of our users to upgrade and use version 1.4.
This release also includes the latest version of Nim’s package manager Nimble, v0.12.0, the changelog for which is available here.
