  • Allow virtual modifiers inside abstract contracts to have empty body.

Compiler Features:

  • Optimizer: Simplify repeated AND and OR operations.
  • Option to specify optimization steps to be performed by Yul optimizer with yul-optimizations in the commandline interface or optimizer.details.yulDetails.optimizerSteps in standard-json.
  • Standard Json Input: Support the prefix file:// in the field urls.


  • SMTChecker: Fix internal error when fixed points are used.
  • SMTChecker: Fix internal error when using array slices.
  • Type Checker: Disallow virtual and override for constructors.
  • Type Checker: Fix several internal errors by performing size and recursiveness checks of types before the full type checking.
  • Type Checker: Fix internal error when assigning to empty tuples.
  • Type Checker: Fix internal error when applying unary operators to tuples with empty components.
  • Type Checker: Perform recursiveness check on structs declared at the file level.

Build System:
