F# 1.9.2 released

The F# team at Microsoft Research just released a new version of F#. This version adds several new features including:
  • use bindings: automatically dispose objects.
  • Slicing: refer to strided subarrays with a concise syntax.
  • Labelled and optional arguments: give function arguments names and default values.
  • Monadic-style asynchronous programming: a beautiful functional style for concurrent programs.
  • Visualization API: allows F# programs to use a uniform API to generate graphics using third-party products like Excel for F# for Visualization.
All of these features will be described in detail in future F#.NET Journal articles.
