This Month in Mun - December 2019

Published on January 3, 2020 by Remco

December is often perceived as a month that emphasizes family and togetherness. The Mun community for one really did pull together, allowing the core contributors to focus on making data structures a reality. This month, we’ve implemented:

  • Parsing of tuple data structures
  • Parsing and type inferencing of data structure literals
  • Indexing of data structure fields
  • Generation of LLVM IR for data structure declarations, literals, and field indexing
  • Add data structure information to the Mun ABI
  • Loading data structure information into the Mun Runtime

We also made some minor fixes for the latest version of Rust and added type checking of binary operations:

Meanwhile, the Mun community has not been standing by idly:

  • We welcomed our first community contributions (PRs #66 & #67) for two of our good first issues. This is a great way for community members to gain an understanding of our codebase and workflow, while helping us implement important fixes and improvements.
  • A community member who works on Veloren, created a proof of concept for Mun-powered hot reloading inside the game:
