  • microregex: fixed character class parsing issue.
  • microregex: added most of the remaining escapes from Perl regular expressions.
  • Added whitespace trimming methods to System.string.

  • Default equality and non-equality operator behavior is now to compare addresses. (ticket #77)
  • Fixed Kite syntax to allow constructs such as x[0].prop.
  • Most compile warnings removed in Windows.
