Subject: GNU ease.js 0.2.7 released [stable]
Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2015 00:02:31 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.0.50 (gnu/linux)

This is a minor release introducing additional features for classes and

This release succeeds v0.2.6, which was released 14 August, 2015.  There are
no backwards-incompatible changes; support continues for ECMAScript 3+.

Changes between 0.2.6 and 0.2.7:
  * ES6-style constructor method supported.
  - Directly invoking the easejs object with a constructor will now perform
      the equivalent of a Class.extend( ctor, {} ).
  - Documentation now compiles with Texinfo 5.2.

  Trait support is currently under development and will be undocumented
  until v0.3.0; it is included here as a preview.  The implementation is
  stable and comprehensively tested, but is incomplete (see TODO).

  * [preview] Traits can now override public and protected methods of class
  - [preview] Error now provided when attempting to declare a mixin that is
      not a trait.

About GNU ease.js
GNU ease.js is a classical object-oriented framework for JavaScript,
intended to eliminate boilerplate code and "ease" the transition into
JavaScript from other object-oriented languages. Features include simple and
intuitive class definitions; classical inheritance; abstract classes and
methods; traits as mixins; interfaces; public, protected, and private access
modifiers; static and constant members; and more. Please see the
comprehensive documentation at <>
for more information, examples, and implementation details.
