Time flies, and today we want to present a few more powerful features of Kotlin 1.4 for your preview. Learn what Kotlin 1.4-M2 has in store, try it, and enjoy its features before they are officially released in Kotlin 1.4.
We thank all of you who tried our first preview of Kotlin 1.4, shared your feedback, and helped make Kotlin better!
Also many thanks to those who have already tried Kotlin 1.4-M2’s standard library improvements announced in our previous post.
In this post, we’ll highlight the new features and key improvements available in 1.4-M2:
- Support for sharing code in several targets thanks to the hierarchical structure in multiplatform projects.
- A new flexible Kotlin Project Wizard for easy creation and configuration of different types of projects.
- A new compiler mode for library authors called explicit API mode that helps create consistent and well-described APIs.
- Kotlin/Native support for using suspending functions from Swift and Objective-C.
- Kotlin/JS’ refined Gradle DSL, CSS support out of the box, and a common export annotation.
