ABS 1.0.2: a small bugfix, a quick release

While getting ready for 1.0.0, we merged some changes that created a very funny behaviour:

1
null == null # false

If you’re wondering what the problem is, well, when we evaluate null we always create a new Null object rather than re-using one (a-la singleton), so when you end up comparing those 2 objects…well, they’re different.

This was a trivial fix and we’ve already released 1.0.2 to address the issue. As usual:

1
bash <(curl https://www.abs-lang.org/installer.sh)

…and start scripting like it’s 2019!
