Kotlin 1.0.2 Update is now Available

The fellows at JetBrains have announced the release of Kotlin 1.0.2 which comes with a number of new features as well as bug fixes in the language and compiler.

Kotlin is a statically typed programming language for the browser, Android and the JVM and is 100% interoperable with Java.

The new stuff in Kotlin 1.0.2

The interesting improvements in Kotlin 1.0.2 are set thanks to Gradle, Kotlin has incremental compilation support. This is a plus as it speeds up the turnaround time during development. Now enabled by default. The incremental compilation was previously available as an experimental feature.

In addition to that Android, Lint checks are now supported for more reliable API checks into the target Android versions. Android developers also benefit from a much smaller standard library with fewer methods.

Now, there is support for Java 7 and 8 as well as improved JavaScript support. Don’t take our word for it but rather check out the detailed changelog to get the full scope of the improvements in Kotlin 1.0.2.
