0.014	2013-11-05	Gunpowder, treason and plot

 - Added: Lexical functions and methods.
 - Added: Return types, optionally with coercion.
 - Updated: Work with (and indeed require Type::Tiny 0.032).

0.013	2013-10-27

 [ Bug Fixes ]
 - Compiled dispatchers introduced in Kavorka 0.012 are essentially a form
   of cache. No cache invalidation was in place, leading to issues when
   adding extra same-named multi method candidates to parent classes after
   a multi method had already been invoked in a child class. Cache
   invalidation now works.

 [ Test Suite ]
 - Test for cache invalidation of compiled multi sub dispatchers.
 - Test that definition of multi subs happens at runtime, and definition
   can continue even after the multi sub has been invoked.

0.012	2013-10-26

 [ Documentation ]
 - Various documentation improvements.

 [ Other ]
 - Optimization: avoid double type checks in multi subs.
 - Optimization: compile dispatchers for multi subs on demand.

0.011	2013-10-25

 [ Documentation ]
 - Split up documentation into a manual with bite-sized chunks.
