Inform release 5Z71

Release date: 2009-04-18 12:00:00

Description of this release

Build 5Z71 uses around a third as much memory as 5U92, does much less file-handling, is a little faster, and can handle projects unlimited in size. Dimensional checking becomes much more flexible, allowing Inform authors to model the world with quantitative physics, and a new built-in extension, "Metric Units by Graham Nelson", defines all the kinds of value needed. Equations, imitating those in books and papers, are added to the language. The release mechanism is also rewritten, allowing much better CSS-friendly websites to be produced by the Release button. The Recipe Book is expanded and rewritten in its coverage of actions and commands. Lastly but most visibly, the Index is redesigned and the Problem messages relaid to incorporate links to relevant documentation. All 132 issues arising from bug reports since build 5U92 are closed out.
