digitalmars.D.announce - DIP 1034--Add a Bottom Type (reboot)--Formal Assessment Concluded

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
When I emailed Walter and Atila to officially launch the Formal 
Assessment of DIP 1034, "Add a Bottom Type (reboot)", I expected 
it would be three or four weeks before I received their final 
decision. So I was surprised when Walter replied two days later 
with the following response:

"Accepted with pleasure and enthusiasm. This is what DIPs should 
be like. I
intuitively felt that a bottom type was right for D, but failed 
to express it in
DIP1017. Dennis has done it right."

Atila was on vacation at the time, but as soon as he got back he 
responded:

"Seconded."

Congratulations to Dennis Korpel for a job well done, and thanks 
to everyone who provided feedback on this DIP from the Draft 
Review through to the Final Review.

Congratulations, Denis! Having used the `never` type in other languages (e.g. TypeScript), I'm very much looking forward to having it in D!
