New Snapshot

Yet another new snapshot.

Changes:

  • Fixed java.lang.Byte implementation of IFormattable to treat byte as a signed number.
  • Changed ikvm.lang.CIL boxing methods for built-in primitives to no longer do the actual boxing, but instead simply return the passed in value as another type, the call site will then do the boxing (if required).
  • Fixed field reflection to support overloaded field names.
  • Fixed a bunch of metadata regressions introduced in 0.31 with the changes made to final field handling.
  • Deprecated final fields that are compiled as properties now have the properties marked with ObsoleteAttribute.
  • Added support for encoding method/field signatures with types that look different in the Java world, but are actually the same in the CLR signatures (e.g. you can now have a method that takes or returns cli.System.Object or cli.System.Int32).

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
