In line with our aim to release smaller changes more frequently on our way to language stability, the v0.4.0 release comes just under two months after v0.3.0. It includes one language addition, a fairly significant reshaping of the API and tooling improvements, as well as the usual host of bug fixes, and performance and error message enhancements.

This release includes a more comprehensive implementation of protobuf, supporting textproto and JSON protobuf mappings, and paves the way for binary protobuf support. See the v0.4.0-alpha.1 release notes for more details.

This release also sets the direction for the CUE API, and brings the overall API much closer to where we would like it to go in the run up to v1.0.0. It also prepares the API for the query extension. See the v0.4.0-alpha.2 release notes for more details.

The v0.4.0 minor release follows the pre-v1.0.0 release policy described in the v0.3.0 release notes: it contains backwards incompatible changes discussed below.

As a reminder: users can register their projects with unity. unity is used to ensure that a project's CUE evaluations do not unexpectedly stop working, or regress in terms of performance. We are in the process of adding support for API-based tests, as well as private instances.

This release fixes some bugs, improves some errors and adds API. This version also drops support for some old constructs that have not been supported in the CUE tool for some time now. The main reason to start being more “aggressive” about this is to avoid surprises as we’re inching towards a full backwards compatibility guarantee. Note that “aggressive” is probably a strong word, these constructs have not been supported for over a year.

Language additions

Value aliases

CUE now allows value aliases, as suggested in various proposals and remarks. This allows, for instance, users to rewrite:

foo: {
    a: b + c
    b: int
    c: int
}
bar: foo & {b: 1, c: 2}

as

foo: X={
    a: X.b + X.c
}
bar: foo & {b: 1, c: 2}

In this case the benefit may be small, but there are various cases where not having this ability results in significant inconvenience. Also the query proposal, the UX design around the usage of the proposed must builtin, as well as various other patterns, rely on this ability.

Note the subtle but important difference between this and using field aliases. Using a field alias here, say X=foo: a: X.b + X.c would be equivalent to foo: a: foo.b + foo.c. As a result, in bar: foo, X.b would still be bound to the original location and not resolve to any b specified in bar.

Which one to use depends on the application. As a general rule, field aliases should be used when defining “types”, whereas value aliases should be used when defining “values”. An example of where one wants to use field aliases:

List="my-list-type": {
    value: _
    next:  List
}

Here, using a value alias would result in a list where every value must be the same. This is probably the most subtle aspect of CUE. The guideline of using values aliases when defining values, and field aliases when defining types, however, should give users a good steer on the matter.

Tooling

Tag variables to inject contextual system values

The injection mechanism now allows injecting specific variables, such as current time, username, or hostname, or a random number, into fields marked with a @tag attribute. For instance:

import "path"

_os: string @tag(os,var=os)

path.Base(dir, _os)

allows for an OS-specific Base operation. Except for cue cmd, the var will only be injected when the -T is explicitly specified on the command line.

This approach 1) allows packages to remain hermetic, 2) allows using such functionality without having to resort to cue cmd, and 3) avoids introducing another injection point.

See cue help injection for more details.

Binary file type

The cue tool now supports binary files. These are very much like the supported “text” files, but translate the file contents to a CUE binary literal, rather than a text literal.

There are no default file extensions to recognize a binary file. The binary: file qualifier can be used to read a file as binary. See cue help filetypes for more info.

To make loading binary files in bulk more useful when importing, the import command now supports the --ext flag, allowing certain file types to be interpreted as a certain format. This also works for other types. See cue help import for more info.

--force/-f

This flag is now allowed for any command that outputs files.

API additions

Context.NewList

Uses can now construct a new list cue.Value with Context.NewList. This is defined on Context to allow the creation of empty lists, which still need to be associated with a Context.

Value.FillPath

FillPath now accepts list indices. The Go-to-CUE are now documented in more detail.

Fillpath now also accepts the selectors AnyString and AnyIndex, which allows setting pattern constraints. For instance, v.FillPath(cue.MakePath(cue.Str("a"), cue.AnyString, x), adds a: [string]: x to v.

It also allows setting optional fields. For instance, v.FillPath(cue.MakePath(cue.Str("b").Optional()), 1) will add b?: 1 to v, using the usual rules for unifying such fields.

Context.Encode

The documentation of this method has been significantly improved. This also fixes some bugs that were uncovered in the process.

These are now also two additional options: InferBuiltins and ImportPath. These were exposed to support the cue command in using the new API, but thus also allows other tool writers to use the same kind of functionality.

CUE package additions

crypto/hmac

The new package hmac implements the Keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC) as defined in U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 198.

uuid

The new package uuid defines functionality for creating UUIDs as defined in RFC 4122.

Currently only Version 5 (SHA1) and Version 3 (MD5) are supported. The new tag variable injection mechanism that was introduced in this release, however, also opens up the possibility to include other versions, if needed.

Backwards incompatible changes

Dropped support for old-style aliases

Aliases of the style X = 4 (now let X = 4) have been deprecated since v0.1.4. However, by setting the version or in API use, these aliases would still work. Support for them has been fully removed. Down the line, this syntax can be reused as value aliases as well, relaxing the places where value aliases can be used.

For the time being, cue fix can still be used to rewrite old-style aliases to their let equivalent. There was a bug that missed the detection of some forms of the deprecated alias type. This has now been fixed.

Dropped support for old-style comprehensions

Support for the old-style comprehensions (e.g. [ x+1 for x in foo]) has now been fully removed. Use an older version of CUE to rewrite such old-style comprehensions using cue fmt or cue fix.

Removed ast.TemplateLabel type from API

This has not been parsed, supported, or used for ages. The type has now been removed from the API.

Value.Expr

Value.Expr now translates the or and and builtins as if they were native | or & constructs. This fixes a bug in encoding/openapi and is likely to prevent many issues. If one was relying on detecting the use of these builtins, however, this now will no longer work.

Value.Decode

This method was reimplemented to not use Value.MarshalJSON. This fixes many bugs, but may cause issues if users were relying on old behavior. The new implementation still strictly adheres to the JSON encoding spec when this makes sense, but deviates in some important aspects. For instance, numbers like 1 are now integers in CUE, rather than float. Also binary values are now handled correctly.

Bug fixes

  • hidden references used on the command line now resolve to hidden fields in the package under evaluation
  • equality of null value

This release focuses on setting direction for the CUE API. This brings the overall API much closer to where we would like it to go. It also prepares the API for the query extension.

Note that this is deliberately marked as an alpha release to allow people to give feedback in the case we need to make some tweaks to the API.

A central piece in that are the cue.Path and cue.Selector types. Another key part is getting rid of the Instance type. This type proves to be unnecessary and not using it results in a considerably nicer UX.

The old functionality is marked as deprecated and will stay around until we provide a way to automatically rewrite them. We will just no longer support them and we use a trick mentioned in this tweet to hide most of the deprecated methods from the Go docs in the meantime (pending a "proper" fix in pkg.go.dev).

Other improvements include:

  • another big round of tuning error messages, most notably adding more line information.
  • a performance bug fix that caused significant slowdown when doing repeated calls of Fill or Unify on the same values.

API additions

The cue.Path model

The old API was designed before the existence of definitions. The fact that definitions live in a different namespace, broke the API at various levels, and patching this up resulted in a brittle and complicated API.

The cue.Path-centred API addresses these issues, resulting in a much smaller API surface while at the same time being less prone to error.

This new API also paves the way for the query extension.

Some deprecated types and methods:

The following types and methods all get replaced by LookupPath:

  • FieldInfo
  • Instance.Lookup
  • Instance.LookupDef
  • Instance.LookupField
  • Value.Elem
  • Value.FieldByName
  • Value.Lookup
  • Value.LookupDef
  • Value.LookupField
  • Value.Struct
  • Value.Template
  • Struct

Similarly, FillPath and ReferencePath replace (Value|Instance).Fill and Reference. The latter also is instrumental in getting rid of Instance. In the long run we will want to repurpose Value.Lookup and Value.Fill, but that will be a long way out.

The new Iterator.Selector method replaces:

  • Iterator.Label
  • Iterator.IsLabel
  • Iterator.IsOptional
  • Iterator.IsDefinition

Using Selector also makes it more explicit what kind of labels one has and is thus less error prone. The selectors can be used to construct paths for lookup methods without loss of information, making the API more precise.

Phasing out Instance

The Instance type was initially intended to allow enforcing certain constraints. The data model of the new evaluator allows doing so without the need for Instance.

Getting rid of Instance has some big benefits. Most notably, the need to link Value to Instance makes it very hard to avoid memory retention, even when a user believes a Value is no longer needed. This causes long-running CUE services to grow in memory usage over time.

Another issue is usability: aside for duplication of methods, it may be hard for a user to know when to use a Value or Instance.

Context to replace Runtime

There are a few reasons for this change. As part of removing Instance, we needed a new way to build Values. The Context type now defines a new set of Value constructors.

Another reason was to have a cleaner way to break the dependency cycle that existed for linking in the core builtins. Previously, the user had to add a import _ "cuelang.org/go/pkg" somewhere in the code, or use a package that already did so, to make the builtins available. Now the user is expected to create a Context using cuecontext.New(), which takes care of this.

Finally, the name Runtime was confusing to some. The Context maintains indices and tables that are shared between creations of values, but there is no inherent “running” state.

The Context now also makes it easier to resolve identifiers in another Value’s scope or to directly encode Go values and types.

Value.Allows

This method now enables querying whether a Value would support a field of a specific type if it were to be added. This also uses the Selector type to specify the kind of field.

This replaces IsClosed.

Backwards incompatible changes

The new APIs are just additions. In many cases, the old API has been implemented in terms of the new API, but should still function as usual. This did result in some bug fixes, however, so one may observe changes.

Value.Format

The one change that may cause backwards incompatibility is the standard fmt.Formatter implementation of Value, which now has a more principled implementation. The standard %v formatter now prints it as a value, but allows incomplete values. The %+v formatter, as before, prints the fully evaluated value and is similar to cue export. The %#v formatter, which previously printed an esoteric debug format, now prints an equivalent of cue def.

Many of the standard Go formatting verbs will now be interpreted as such if the Value is of a compatible Go type. See the documentation of Value.Format for more details.

There have been various bug fixes in the exporter code as part of this change.

cue/encoding

This package has been removed. It really didn’t do anything except from being a distraction. In the off chance that anybody was using this package, just deleting that code would probably solve it.

This release introduces a more comprehensive implementation of protobuf, supporting textproto and JSON protobuf mappings, and paving the way for binary protobuf support as well.

This release required some significant changes to the cue command logic.

A hallmark property of protobuf data formats is that they cannot be parsed without a schema (unlike JSON, for instance). This is true to various degrees for the different formats, but it holds true in some shape or form for all of these. This required some changes in the CUE tooling to make this possible. It also required some backwards incompatible changes.

Protobuf changes

Filetype *.textproto

CUE now supports interpreting and writing text proto files. Text proto files cannot be interpreted, or even parsed, without a schema. This means that .textproto files can only be read with an explicit schema using the --schema/-d flag. Moreover, the schema must have @protobuf for certain types, such as maps, to be interpreted properly.

Note that the available .textproto parsing libraries are incredibly buggy. So there will be some rough edges that are kind out of CUE’s hands.

JSON conversion: package jsonpb and json+pb

The Protobuf documentation has a recommendation on how Proto messages should map to JSON. Package jsonpb now supports this mapping in both directions. It implements this by rewriting a CUE AST based on a given schema, a cue.Value. This allows this mapping to also be combined in conjunction with Yaml, for instance.

On the command line this feature can be used through the pb “interpretation”, for instance as json+pb or yaml+pb. Both input and output are supported.

Note that interpretations to CUE require a schema for the interpretation. This can be an explicitly specified schema using the --schema/-d flag or an implicit only by unifying it with a schema value or playing it within a schema using the placement flags (see cue help flags).

Backwards incompatible changes

@protobuf tag

The protobuf previously had only one required argument: the numeric value of the enum. The type was optional and only included if different in name from the CUE type. As it turned out, though, the CUE type was not always sufficient information to be able to represent proto values. Most notably, integer values are encoded differently in JSON depending on the type of integer in the proto specification (this is not a typo!!).

The new format includes the type unconditionally as the second argument. CUE does its best to recognize old formats for backwards compatibility purposes, but this may cause issues.

@protobuf(<tag num>,<type>, ...options)

Protobuf options are still represented as string literals, allowing CUE options, such as alternative names (name=x) to be represented as the usual <key>=<value> format.

Another change is the representation for map types. Previously, the Protobuf map type was included verbatim (map<T,U>). This was somewhat inconvenient for parsing attributes, though: angular brackets are, unlike (), [], and {} not matched. So the comma in the map type commanded some escaping. To avoid this, maps are now represented as map[T]U. We contemplated using [T]:U, but opted for the map prefix for clarity and future extendibility.

JSON mappings

An initial design decision for the Proto to CUE mapping was to have CUE follow the Proto to JSON mapping. By hindsight, though, this did not make much sense. The inconsistency of having integers represented as strings does not make sense for a language that supports expressions on such integers (unless we want to give up typing, perhaps).

The stance now is to take the representation that makes sense, and have a protobuf-specific CUE to/from JSON converters. This is akin to the JSON schema and OpenAPI converters, which map CUE to some data format, using JSON or YAML, for instance, as a transport layer.

Luckily, the Protobuf to CUE mapping already deviated from the recommended mapping, always defaulting to int for integer types. So there are no changes there, other than that there is now support for following the recommended mappings for import and export.

Enum mappings

The most noteworthy backwards incompatible change is how enum types are mapped. Previously, CUE followed the recommended JSON mapping of using strings. This turned out to be a bad idea for various reasons. Firstly, the source of truth are integer values, really, not the names. There may be multiple names per number, making comparing names somewhat meaningless. Finally, most other languages used integers as representations, making the CUE representation not interoperate well with such languages.

Although the old mapping is still supported, the integer-based mapping is now recommended.

The default enum representation when using cue import proto is now to represent enums as integers in CUE. The --proto_enum=json flag can be used to invoke the old conversion behavior.

The API will keep converting using the JSON format, but now has a Config.EnumMode option for selecting the alternative behavior.

The Protobuf to JSON interpretation (filetype json+pb or package jsonpb) supports converting back and forth in either format.

This release contains several bug fixes, API additions, some API deprecations, and a language addition. One of the bug fixes may lead to unexpected behavior (see below).

Backwards Incompatible Bug Fix

One common use case of cmd/cue involves combining CUE and non-CUE files. Consider the following example:

// check.cue
package check

map: {for n in nodes {"\(n.name)": n}}
# data.yaml
nodes:
- name: bar
  parent: foo

- name: baz
  parent: foo

With v0.3.0 and earlier, cue eval would happily combine these two files:

$ cue eval data.yaml check.cue
map: {
    bar: {
        name:   "bar"
        parent: "foo"
    }
    baz: {
        name:   "baz"
        parent: "foo"
    }
}
nodes: [{
    name:   "bar"
    parent: "foo"
}, {
    name:   "baz"
    parent: "foo"
}]

But cue vet would complain:

$ cue vet data.yaml check.cue
map: reference "nodes" not found:
    ./check.cue:3:16

cue vet is actually correct here. Identifier resolution should only happen across files that belong to the same package: non-CUE files are equivalent to a CUE file without a package clause or an anonymous package clause (package _), hence cue eval should really fail in this instance.

v0.3.1 makes cue eval and other commands consistent with cue vet. This was deemed a sufficiently breaking change to warrant its own release.

The fix in this case is to define nodes in the scope of package check:

// check.cue

package check

nodes: _
map: {for n in nodes {"\(n.name)": n}}

at which point cue eval succeeds as before.

An upcoming change will also ensure this condition of identifier resolution is satisfied for all non-package CUE file arguments.

API changes

The cue.Selector model has been extended to allow querying optional fields and arbitrary elements.

Deprecations

The following methods of Value have now been deprecated:
FieldByName
Elem
Template

Really, you should only need LookupPath for your lookup needs. For the most part, these old methods have been reimplemented using the new API.

Also, updated the doc that one really, really should not use Merge.

If you are a user of the API we strongly recommend running staticcheck: it will raise errors where you are using deprecated parts of the API.

Language Additions

CUE now allows parenthesized expressions as labels. This is not (yet) published in the spec, but part of the query proposal. So "\(x)": foo, where x is a string, may now be written as (x): foo.

After a long road, we have now an official v0.3.0 release. Aside from implementing some important changes to the language (see release notes), it prepares CUE for exciting new features such as the query and policy extensions and other language extensions as well as much better performance.

The focus will now be to get to language stability and a v1.0.0 release.

With this release will also come a different approach to versioning leading up to the v1.0.0 release. The goal is to get to the stability guarantee for the language first, then the API and tooling. Up to v1.0.0, version increments will have the following meanings:

  • minor (_.x._)
    • backwards incompatible changes
    • bug fixes with notable backwards incompatible changes
    • large new features
  • patch (_._.x)
    • bug and spec conformance fixes
    • new features

We plan to get the few small remaining backwards incompatible languages chances out as soon as possible. To make the transition as simple as possible, we aim to put possible impactful bug fixes in small releases, so that users get a chance to get used to them. And, of course, we plan to make any necessary transitions as smooth as possible using cue fix aids when possible.

Note that to smooth out any transition, users can register their repos at https://github.com/cue-sh/unity. This is used to ensure that their CUE evaluations will not unexpectedly stop working.

API

encoding/protobuf/jsonpb

Protobuf defines its own, somewhat peculiar, mapping to JSON. This package provides a way to interpret JSON for such mappings, given a CUE schema. This is a first step towards broader Protobuf value support.

cue.Selector

Several new features have been added to Selector, including the possibility to query whether a selector is a regular string field and the ability to create a Selector form an ast.Label.

Value.Attributes

Value has been extended with a more extensive API to retrieve attributes.

Value.Subsume

Now allows raw (CUE-native) subsumption, instead of just the "Schema" or "Data" interpretations.

Value.FillPath

For completeness, note that beta.8 already introduced FillPath.
