Version 2.1.2 Released#

We have released version 2.1.2 of Orc, a minor update. This release makes no language changes. The release updates Orc's dependencies on Scala and Java to versions 2.12 and 8, respectively.

There are multiple ways to run Orc:

1. Use our Try Orc ( https://orc.csres.utexas.edu/tryorc.shtml ) feature to experiment with Orc in your Web browser.

2. Use the Orc plug-in for Eclipse, available as "Orc" on the Eclipse Marketplace. (In Eclipse, use the menu item Help > Eclipse Marketplace) If you already have the Orc plug-in for Eclipse installed, use the Check for Updates menu item to get the update.

3. Orc is also available as a standalone JAR which you can use to run programs on the command line. You can download the release archive from GitHub at https://github.com/orc-lang/orc/releases .

Orc on GitHub#

With the shutdown of Google Code Project Hosting, we have migrated to GitHub. This, of course, means that we have changed our version control system to git.

All of the Orc source repository, release files, and issues (including history of each) is now available at https://github.com/orc-lang/orc

Be sure to "star" the orc-lang/orc repo on GitHub.

Version 2.1.0 Released#

Orc 2.1 is a new revision of the Orc implementation. This release is backward compatible with all Orc 2.0 programs, however it does have a few language improvements and extensions. In addition, significant work has gone into improving the underlying implementation.

See our Downloads page for detailed instructions on how to download and use Orc within Eclipse, locally within your Web browser, or from the command line.

Added#

  • Support for virtual clocks.
  • Optional declaration-expression separator "#" added that disambiguates the end of a declaration.
  • InvokeExecutable class in the standard library allows Orc to spawn OS processes.
  • Sites added to the standard library: zipWith, listToJavaList, listToArray.
  • Support for Unicode escapes in Orc strings.

Modified#

  • Updated Scala dependency to 2.10.
  • Fix blocking on strict site call arguments; if any argument halts the entire call will halt regardless of the state of other arguments.
  • Improved runtime error messages.
  • Documentation of the Orc standard library has been expanded and improved.
