Kotlin 1.2.30 Released

Kotlin 1.2.30 has been released.  Kotlin is a new JVM powered programming language from JetBrains, the makers of popular development tools such as Intellij IDEA, WebStorm and CLion IDEs.  While initially targeting the existing Java VM environment and maintaining compatibility with Java libraries, Kotlin also can now be compiled to JavaScript as well as LLVM targets making native no VM compilation possible.


New features in this release:

  • Adds a new declaration in the standard library, which imitates the suspend modifier for lambda expressions
  • Adds support for TestNG in kotlin.test
  • Brings support for Android modules in multiplatform projects
  • Introduces a new feature in kapt for reporting annotation processing errors along with proper links to the original Kotlin declarations
  • Adds a lot of new inspections and intentions in the IntelliJ plugin and improves its performance
  • Fixes bugs in the compiler and IntelliJ plugin

The update is compatible with all versions of IntelliJ IDEA from 2017.1 until 2017.3 and 2018.1 EAP, as well as with Android Studio 3.0.
