Haxe 4.0.0-preview.5 is released

Dear Community,

On behalf of the Haxe Foundation, we are proud to announce the official release of the Haxe 4.0.0-preview.5! It is available along with the changelog at Haxe 4.0.0-preview.5 - Haxe - The Cross-platform Toolkit.

As a preview release, it should not be considered stable. However, we appreciate anyone testing this version which will help us with the real Haxe 4 release. Please report any issues here: Issues · HaxeFoundation/haxe · GitHub

Thank you very much for your help!

Some of the new features:

  • support Unicode strings properly on all targets
  • support for (key => value in e) syntax for key-value iterators and added it to Map
  • support inline call() and inline new expressions (#7425)
  • support @:using on type declarations (#7462)
  • support XML literal strings but require them to be macro-processed (#7438)
  • allow enum values without arguments as default function argument values (#7439)
  • reserved operator and overload as keywords (#7413)

Should rc1 be pinned now?
