kurila 1.17 released


Highlights:

+ Renamed special variables
Variables like $\ and $| have been renamed to have the form
$^NAME like $^INPUT_RECORD_SEPARATOR and $^OUTPUT_AUTOFLUSH
Rationale: The names are descriptive.

+ Special variables are evaluated where declared.
Variables like $1 and $^HINTS are evaluated where declared,
instead of when their value is used.
Rationale: Prevents action-at-a-distance.

+ Removed 'tie'
Rationale: Prevents action-at-a-distance.

+ Dynamic scope
A dynamic scope is added. At the moment only used for adding
code to leaving scope.
Rationale: A more generic alternative for local.

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.
