o42a-0.2.4 Release Notes

This is primarily a bugfix release. Just a few actual changes was made to the core library, but this revealed a lot of bugs and some design issues.

The automatic link dereferencing rules was improved to better work for phrases. A phrase never dereferenced automatically before. Now, any phrase resulting to a link will be automatically dereferenced, unless it’s prefix contains a link body reference. This is purely syntactic rule, so it is always clear whether a phrase will be automatically dereferenced or not.

Indexed Prototype

Both Row and Array core objects derived from Indexed prototype now. This prototype declares an interface for work with indexed items. It uses macros and is applicable to any type of items.

Array and row items access is implemented using ordinary fields and phrases now instead of special technique used before.
