NOTE: This article has been superceded by later changes to the Aether library in late 2015. See the Aether site for up to date information.
Very quick note here! I just made some breaking changes to the Aether API, changing functions like
setPL to more idiomatically F# formulations like
Lens.setPartial. The new API should be if anything more obvious in terms of usage, and the slight increase in verbosity is probably compensated by the decreased “F# surprise”.
I have, of course, bumped the library a major version, so assuming you’re using a good dependency management tool which handles semantic versions correctly where specified (e.g. Paket) you shouldn’t have any immediate problems. However, it will be a mechanical refactor at some point.
My apologies if this causes some disruption to anyone, hopefully it should be quite minor, and makes F# a little more discoverable.
