Required semicolon

Why is the trailing semicolon required?

I agree that it shouldn’t be necessary, I assume it’s borrowed from java and C which started and persisted the convention. Many haxe newcomers have been asking for optional semicolons since we seem to have a lot of people coming from godot, which doesn’t require them. It takes a while to gain/lose the habit, for me.

I thought there was already an issue made, suggesting it’s removal in Github but I don’t see it
