Description Alex Corrado [MSFT] 2016-04-01 17:23:38 UTC
The result of method calls that return a non-void value is displayed as "null" when the call is terminated with a semicolon. If the semicolon is omitted, the correct value is displayed.

Test case:

bool Test () => true

Test ()
--> true

Test ();
--> null

Expected behavior:
The proper return value should be displayed regardless of whether a semicolon is used.

Will be fixed in 0.7.2.
