  [Incompatible Changes]
    * The reader of the byte and short field return the int type.
      This is because public API is good to return the int type regardless of the internal field type byte/short.
    * The writer of the byte and short field recieve the int type.
      This is because public API is good to receive the int type regardless of the internal field type byte/short.
    * The reader of the byte and short class variable return the int type.
      This is because public API is good to return the int type regardless of the internal class variable type byte/short.
    * The writer of the byte and short class variable return the int type.

What Is SPVM?

SPVM is a static typed language that can be used from Perl. SPVM is the essential part of the Python/numpy porting to Perl. If you haven't heard of Perl's SPVM. Please see also SPVM Language Specification.

How potential dose SPVM have?

Growth is expected in the fields of Bio Tech, AI/ML, Apple/iPhone/iPad Apps, Google/Android Apps, IoT Device, Connected Car, Smart Device, Smart Home, etc.

This is because SPVM can produce an executable file that supports cross platforms and make easy to calculate arrays and bind C/C++ and Nvidia/GPU/cuda.
