Cleaning up and 2.0 - Addition and Concatenation (Program Bug and Problems)
I'd prefer to maintain as much as possible the language backwards compatible. Otherwise, at each new revision people are forced to review all the changes to the language, review all their programs looking if they use any of the changed functionalities, change them if necessary, an retest the programs.
I think this should be avoided exception made of very big reasons.
(I'm refering specifically to convert and add with the "+" operator two strings containing digits)
Also, if the language is not seen as very stable, this can prevent new people from using it.
