Nullable Types Are Being Changed - Late but Not Too Late

This blog article explains that, and why, a late change to the implementation of nullable types is being made in the runtime, making nullables an intrinsic type. This solves the problems that many had reported when nullables were used in situations where boxing occurred, and where null comparisons were made involving generic types. Read the original article for the details, this is good news!

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
