In some of the recent threads here, people have asked questions about I6 features that aren’t covered by the DM4.
Most of the answers are in the release notes document (https://ifarchive.org/if-archive/infocom/compilers/inform6/ReleaseNotes.html). But that’s hard to search and sometimes only has brief summaries of new features.
I have written up an overview of everything that’s been added to the I6 compiler since the DM4 was written. (The DM4 covers Inform 6.21.) I guess it’s still brief summaries, but at least it’s now organized in alphabetical lists.
This just covers the compiler and the Inform 6 language, not the library. (David Griffith handles the library.)
Draft is here:
This is a temporary URL. I expect it will move to the IF Archive or somewhere once it’s finalized.
Does this make sense? Have I left anything out?
