pike.git/CHANGES:7:   o Unlimited character constant size.       There is no longer any limit to the size of character constants,    e.g. 'acdefghijk' creates the bignum 0x61636465666768696a6b.      o 'auto' type added.       This is much like a strict typed mixed. The actual type is deduced    compile-time.    -  The main use case is as variables in foreach when looping over -  complexly typed values, or as types in macro-defined functions and -  such. +  Typical use is as the type for variables in foreach when looping over +  complexly typed values, or as the type in macro-defined functions and +  similar.       auto can be used as return type for a function, it will be the    logical or of all the types of the return statements in the    function.      o typeof(X) can now be used as a type.       The main use case is in macros, but it might be useful for other    things as well (as an example in a typedef).
