I recently pushed a changeset to remove support for '#'-based syntax for
_method references_ (the commit message is confusing, I pushed too fast
;-)). This means that the long standing syntax for method references:
is now not supported anymore. Instead, the compiler accepts a similar
infix variant, where '#' is replaced by '::' - this has been available
for quite some time, and it is also the syntax used in all recent
The syntax discussion regarding method references is still ongoing with
the EG - so this push doesn't mean we are 100% committed to the '::'
syntax - on the other hand we are fully committed _not to_ have the '#'
syntax, as we envisage better usages for such token in future releases.
