kurila 1.16 released


Highlights:

+ Structured assignments
Extract values from complex structures using assignments.
For example:
my %( aap => $aap, ?noot => $noot ) = $h;
Assigns $h{aap} to $aap and $h{noot} (if it exists) to $noot.
Rationale: Powerfull new assignments.

+ Controlled hash and array element access and creation
By default access an element that does not exists will
produce an error. To add an element add a "+" to accessor,
to ignore non-existing elements add a "?" to the accessor.
Rationale: Direct control over the creation and access
of array and hash elements.

Perl Kurila is a dialect of Perl. With Perl 5 as ancestor it has a
solid base, but without the backwards compatibility
requirement of Perl 5, it is free to evolve into new directions.

Standing on the shoulders of a red giant to face the future.
