The code snippet on this page no longer compiles in 2.059

http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1609144&seqNum=8

Minimal example:
--------------------------------
void foo() {
    import std.concurrency;
    receive( (OwnerTerminated) { } );
}
--------------------------------

std/concurrency.d(529): Error: cannot have parameter of type void
std/concurrency.d(529): Error: variable
std.concurrency.receive!(void).receive._param_0 voids have no value


The problem appears to be with lambdas with unnamed user-defined parameters:

--------------------------------
class Foo {}
auto a = (Foo) {}; // error
auto b = (Foo f) {}; // ok
--------------------------------

If this is intentional, it wasn't mentioned as a breaking change in the 2.059
changelog.

With:

  class Foo {}
  auto a = (Foo) {}; // error

I get with 2.058 and 2.059:

  Error: cannot infer type from ambiguous function literal __lambda2

That's different from what you say you're getting. It's also correct, as the
type of parameter Foo cannot be inferred.

That's the same as what I get. The error message in the post relates to the OwnerTerminated code snippet above it. I don't understand what you mean with the type inference for the Foo parameter. The type is Foo.
The change in 2.058 was that given: auto a = (x) { ... }; x is a parameter, of type to be inferred. Previously, it was assumed to be a type.
 Is this an errata for TDPL?
I believe so. Should be rewritten to something like: void foo() { import std.concurrency; receive( (OwnerTerminated x) { } ); } -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

Since this is now the way the language is supposed to work, I'm going to close
this as not a bug.
