And one month after the release of 1.2.1 we're happy to announce the latest 1.2.2 version!

The release contains mostly bug fixes but there are some notable enhancements and features:

- you can now use java.lang.Iterable and arrays in for statements and comprehensions,
- the [] lookup operator works on Java lists, arrays and maps,
the in operator works on java.util.Collection
- `ceylon.html` was rewritten according to HTML5 specification and with support for lazy evaluation
- a new ceylon bootstrap command to make it really easy to distribute code to people that don't have Ceylon installed.

See here for more information: http://www.ceylon-lang.org/blog/2016/03/11/ceylon-1-2-2/

Or go directly to the download: http://www.ceylon-lang.org/download/

Is RedHat somehow leveraging Ceylon in production?

Here we go again. THAT TOPIC. But hang on. The approach discussed here (and in the Ceylon language) is not something you see every day. At the same time, it is very cunning. Nulls are baked into the language … or so it may seem. Indeed, in Ceylon, like in…
