Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.7.4, Package name: elixir-1.7.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Elixir is a functional, meta-programming aware language built on top of the
Erlang VM. It is a dynamic language that focuses on tooling to leverage
Erlang's abilities to build concurrent, distributed and fault-tolerant
applications with hot code upgrades.

lang/elixir: update to 1.7.4.

    [Kernel] Expand left..right at compile time in more cases, which leads to \ 
improved performance under different scenarios, especially on x in left..right \ 


    [mix deps.loadpaths] Add --no-load-deps flag. This is useful for Rebar 3 \ 

2. Bug fixes


    [Calendar] Fix for converting from negative iso days on New Year in a leap year

1. Bug fixes

- [ExUnit.Assertions] Do not attempt to expand `try/1` as it is a
  special form

  as a runtime dependency for applications coming from Hex


1. Bug fixes

- [DateTime] Take negative years into account in
- [Kernel] Do not emit warnings for repeated docs over different
  clauses due to false positives

- [mix compile] Properly mark top-level dependencies as optional and
  as runtime. This fixes a bug where Mix attempted to start optional
  dependencies of a package when those optional dependencies were not
- [mix compile] Avoid deadlock when a config has a timestamp later
  than current time
- [mix help] Show task and alias help when both are available
- [mix test] Do not fail suite if there are no test files

- [Code] Add `Code.compile_file/2` that compiles files without leaving
  footprints on the system

  module left behind. This is useful for live systems dynamically
  compiling code

  of `left not in right`
