Hello, all. Please see below for a draft spec of language changes to support local variable type inference ('var').

If you haven't read it already, you'll want to look at the proposal [1] and Brian's summary of design considerations and community feedback (sent to platform-jep-discuss) [2].

Feel free to respond with your feedback.
