This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 57 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 57 are here. Eventually, the entire history will be moved there, including any new messages.
* The syntax is now backwards compatible with SRFI-9, and supports new useful variations. * I have cleaned up the specification a bit, and added some more explanation and rationale. * Some operations have been renamed, e.g. update is now record-update. * The reference implementation has been simplified somewhat. * I have dropped pattern matching. A separate SRFI on this will hopefully follow soon. * I have dropped introspection/generic operations on records. While I realize that this is useful, and have received some very good suggestions both online and privately, I think the design space is too large to come to a reasonable consensus in a reasonable time. I would invite anyone who is interested to submit a separate SRFI for this later... Regards Andre
