Subject Fwd: type name changes
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2016 05:14:57 GMT
I checked the newly changed documentation. We used int for the abbreviation
for INT64 (I assume that is now bigint?) type. Now, INT is an abbreviation
for INT32? I thought we converted the default type to INT64 (bigint).
Aren't INT32 type displaying i32 as suffix?

Subject: type name changes

Hi users,

Recently, we did some name changes for builtin types to better align with
SQL's types:

There will be a further name change that changes "record" to "object", to
better align with JSON.
The purpose of renaming those builtin types is to lower the usage bar for
users who are using either SQL or JSON.

Note that all the old type names should still work as it used to be.
However, it is better to move to new names for future use cases.
