Exceptions as objects

by Emmanuel Stapf (modified: 2012 Jun 04)

A week ago, we started the cycle of intermediate releases of 6.2. They can be found on the EiffelStudio development site at https://svn.eiffel.com/eiffelstudio.

One of the new feature of this release is the introduction of the ECMA specification regarding exceptions: exceptions as objects. If you want to know more on this topic, check Ted's blog entry on the subject. It was originally scheduled for 6.1 and due to lack of testing we postponed its integration to 6.2. It should not break existing code based on integer code, but we are interested to know about your experiments with this new release.

Other developments of 6.2 can be found in our road map page.

And since we are starting a new year, I wish you all the best for 2008 and count on your support to spread the usage of Eiffel.
