Solidity error message format, breaking release 0.7.0

March 30, 2020 at 2:30pm
Hi there, Franzi from Solidity here! We're currently planning Solidity's next breaking release (0.7.0) and are planning on removing the option to switch between the old and the new error reporter. Is the old format of error messages still needed in Truffle somewhere? (see: https://github.com/ethereum/solidity/pull/7368 for context) Thanks so much in advance!

When you talk about the error reporter, you're talking about the part that outputs compile errors? Truffle Debugger wouldn't have much to do with that. It's possible that the truffle compile command might need it though; I don't actually know how error messages get reported there. I think is the person to talk to about that.

Ok thanks ! I'll try to check with then.
