[CLJ-989] clojure.org/downloads page, nightly builds link out of date Created: 08/May/12  Updated: 10/May/12  Resolved: 10/May/12

Patch: Code


The clojure.org/downloads page links a page that claims to have up to date builds of Clojure's master branch at build.clojure.org.

Either build.clojure.org needs to be updated, or the link should be removed or changed to reflect the statement.

On a personal note, I'd like to be able to link to alpha/beta versions of clojure 1.5.

Once again likely abusing the "Patch" attribute of a ticket. I've set it to Code to indicate that it is ready for screening/action, not that it actually has a patch. I suppose if you take a very broad view of patch, one that includes the English text describing the suggested web page changes to clojure.org/downloads in the description, then it does have a patch.

I have updated the link for build.clojure.org to point to https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/org/clojure/clojure/1.5.0-master-SNAPSHOT/

afaik there are no alpha/beta versions of 1.5 yet.

Closing this issue – Brent or someone else can reopen if they feel the issue was not fully resolved.

[CLJ-936] Improve docs about argument destructuring at clojure.org Created: 21/Feb/12  Updated: 01/Mar/13  Resolved: 27/Nov/12

Make the description of argument destructuring more visible at http://clojure.org/special_forms, namely:

  • add a heading such as "<h4>Binding Forms (Argument Destructuring)</h4>" to the section describing it
  • make all occurences of "binding-form" a link to that heading, especially under the let and fn headings
  • for (fn ..) add a new second paragraph like "Regarding binding forms, also known as argument destructuring, <a href=#thea-new-heading>read more in the binding forms section</a> under the let special form."

It was always surprisingly difficult for me to google out the explanation of destructuring in Clojure and only today have I discovered that it is described pretty well under the let special form. Thus it should be made more visible to the readers (and preferably also search engines). (Even though Google has returned the page as one of the first matches, I had problems seeing it there - partly due to usually mistyping destructuring e.g. as deconstruction).

Thanks a lot!

PS: I haven't found a better way to report this, such as a commenting capability on the page itself.

Jakub, I don't think I have authorization to edit those web pages in the way you suggest. I did want to comment that the most recent version of the Clojure cheatsheet at http://clojure.org/cheatsheet now has a link called "examples" in the "Special Forms" section that links to the 'let' section of the special forms documentation page.
