Cmajor compiler version 1.3.0 released:

Cmajor is a hybrid programming language based on C++ and C#. Its
syntax is closer to C#'s than C++'s syntax and semantics closer to
C++'s semantics than C#'s semantics.

It's not garbage collected but relies on destructors doing the cleanup
as in C++.

It runs on Windows and Linux, has LLVM and C backends, has basic
implementation of concepts, has an IDE in Windows, and has support for
debugging integrated in IDE in Windows and using command line tool
cmdb in Linux.

New in this release:
o Although the default Cmajor compiler used is still written in C++,
there is now Cmajor compiler written in Cmajor.
It is about 2.5 times slower than the C++ version, it leaks memory
and it does not compile in "full" configuration, but it's a starting point.

o Synthesized equality operator: the compiler implements memberwise
equality comparison operator for a class if it is called.

o New libraries:
- System.IO.Compression
- System.Numerics.Multiprecision

o Many bugs fixed.
