Changes from Hy 0.9.6
[ Syntax Fixes ]
* UTF-8 encoded hy symbols are now hy_... rather than __hy_..., it's
silly to prefex them as such. (PT)
* `j' is no longer always intepreted as a complex number; we use it much
more as a symbol. (JD)
* (decorate-with) has been moved to (with-decorate) (JD)
* New (unless) macro (JD)
* New (when) macro (JD)
* New (take) macro (@eigenhombre)
* New (drop) macro (@eigenhombre)
* import-from and import-as finally removed. (GN)
* Allow bodyless functions (JD)
* Allow variable without value in `let' declaration (JD)
* new (global) builtin (@eal)
* new lambda-list syntax for function defs, for var-arity, kwargs. (JK)
[ Language Changes ]
* *HUGE* rewrite of the compiler. Massive thanks go to olasd
and jd for making this happen. This solves just an insane number
of bugs. (ND, PT, JD)
* Eval no longer sucks with statements (ND)
* New magic binary flags / mis fixes with the hy intepreter
(WKG + @eigenhombre)
Changes from Hy 0.9.5
[ Syntax Fixes ]
* .pyc generation routines now work on Python 3. (Vladimir Gorbunov)
* Allow empty (do) forms (JD)
* The `else' form is now supported in `try' statements. (JD)
* Allow `(raise)', which, like Python, will re-raise
the last Exception. (JD)
* Strings, bools, symbols are now valid top-level entries. (Konrad Hinsen)
* UTF-8 strings will no longer get punycode encoded. (ND)
* bare (yield) is now valid. (PT)
* (try) now supports the (finally) form. (JD)
* Add in the missing operators and AugAssign operators. (JD)
* (foreach) now supports the (else) form. (JD)

=============== WARNING: WARNING: READ ME: READ ME: ===================
From here on out, we will only support "future division" as part of hy.
This is actually quite a pain for us, but it's going to be quite an
amazing feautre.
This also normalizes behavior from Py 2 --> Py 3.
Thank you so much, Konrad Hinsen.
* (pass) has been removed from the language; it's a wart that comes from
a need to create valid Python syntax without breaking the whitespace
bits. (JD)
* We've moved to a new import style, (import-from) and (import-as) will
be removed before 1.0. (GN)
* Prototypes for quoted forms (PT)
* Prototypes for eval (PT)
* Enhance tracebacks from language breakage coming from the compiler (JD)
* The REPL no longer bails out if the internals break (Konrad Hinsen)
* We now support float and complex numbers. (Konrad Hinsen)
* Keywords (such as :foo) are now valid and loved. (GN)
Changes from Hy 0.9.4
[ Syntax Fixes ]
* `try' now accepts `else': (JD)
(try BODY
(except [] BODY)
(else BODY))
Changes from Hy 0.9.4
[ Syntax Fixes ]
* Statements in the `fn' path early will not return anymore. (PT)
* Added "not" as the inline "not" operator. It's advised to still
use "not-in" or "is-not" rather then nesting. (JD)
* `let' macro added (PT)
* Added "~" as the "invert" operator. (JD)
* `catch' now accepts a new format: (JD)
(catch [] BODY)
(catch [Exception] BODY)
(catch [e Exception] BODY)
(catch [e [Exception1 Exception2]] BODY)
* With's syntax was fixed to match the rest of the code. It's now: (PT)
(with [name context-managed-fn] BODY)
(with [context-managed-fn] BODY)
[ Language Changes ]
* Added `and' and `or' (GN)
* Added the tail threading macro (->>) (PT)
* UTF encoded symbols are allowed, but mangled. All Hy source is now
presumed to be UTF-8. (JD + PT)
* Better builtin signature checking (JD)
* If hoisting (for things like printing the return of an if statement)
have been added. '(print (if true true true))' (PT)
[ Documentation ]
* Initial documentation added to the source tree. (PT)
Changes from Hy 0.9.3
[ Syntax Fixes ]
* Nested (do) expressions no longer break Hy (PT)
* `progn' is now a valid alias for `do' (PT)
* `defun' is now a valid alias for `defn' (PT)
* Added two new escapes for \ and " (PT)
[ Language Changes ]
* Show a traceback when a compile-error bubbles up in the Hy REPL (PT)
* `setf' / `setv' added, the behavior of `def` may change in the future.
* `print' no longer breaks in Python 3.x (PT)
* Added `list-comp' list comprehensions. (PT)
* Function hoisting (for things like inline invocation of functions,
e.g. '((fn [] (print "hi!")))' has been added. (PT)
* `while' form added. (ND)
[ Documentation ]
* Initial docs added. (WKG + CW)
Changes from Hy 0.9.2
