Our second approved expense

Thanks to your donations we've standardized support for record puns, meaning that you can now use { x, y } as a syntactic shorthand for { x = x, y = y }.

This is a user experience improvement that several people had requested for a while but nobody took the initiative to standardize until we offered a $200 bounty to do so:

... which will be made available in the next release, coming up soon.
