    3 The Alpha Compiler is the DDC 0.1.* series, and is the version described in [http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~benl/papers/thesis/lippmeier-impure-world.pdf Type Inference and Optimisation for an Impure World]. It is being rewritten from the ground up to use a cleaned up core language. The new core language exists in DDC 0.2 and later. The alpha compiler is still available in the source repository under [http://code.ouroborus.net/ddc/ddc-head/packages/ddc-alpha/ ddc-alpha] but work on it has ceased. We keep the alpha compiler working so we can use it as a reference, at least until the new compiler is feature-complete relative to the old one.
