3.2.0

Description: 

Improvements have been made to the language, including BigInteger / BitDecimal literals, support for JVM primitive type references, multiple imports, relative imports, dynamic objects from JSON text and more.

The tooling has received many efforts, including better command-line interfaces, better documentation generation, localization of the compiler messages, etc.

More generally the code base quality has been a strong focus with many fixes.
