kiama-1.5.2 1.5.2

The Kiama team is pleased to bring you the next release of the library. This release mostly contains code tidy-up changes, plus a couple of important bug and performance fixes.


  • Attribution

    • Circular attributes are more efficient as they are better at avoiding re-computation
    • circular now returns the correct attribute type, not a plain function type
  • Rewriting

    • Names for strategies that have recursive implementations are now allocated to the top-level strategy only not to each level of the recursion, thereby making profiles of those strategies show correct invocation counts


  • Attribution

    • Circular attributes now have a hasBeenComputedAt method
  • Utility

    • New ProfilingREPL trait to easily combine profiling with REPLs
    • Move to Scallop-based command-line handling in examples


  • Remove some reliance on mutable data and vars
  • Move to sbt 0.13, Scala 2.10.3, ScalaTest 2.0, ScalaCheck 1.10.1, Scallop 0.9.4, dsprofile 0.3
  • Other code tidy up

Kiama is a Scala library for language processing including attribute grammars, term rewriting, abstract state machines and pretty printing.
