Develop: BiMap-like generics not working


Please check out the attached repro files. I have a BiMap<K, V> class that looks like this:
class BiMap<K, V> {

    private forwardMap: LinkedMap<K, V>;
    private inverseMap: LinkedMap<V, K>;

    private inverseBiMap: BiMap<V, K>;

    constructor(forwardMap = new LinkedMap<K, V>(), inverseMap = new LinkedMap<V, K>()) {
        this.forwardMap = forwardMap;
        this.inverseMap = inverseMap;

    public inverse(): BiMap<V, K> {
        if (this.inverseBiMap == null) {
            this.inverseBiMap = new BiMap<V, K>(this.inverseMap, this.forwardMap);

        return this.inverseBiMap;
And a test that looks like this:
        var biMap = new BiMap<string, number>();
        var key = "key";
        var value = 100;

        // set a value
        biMap.set(key, value);
        assert.equal(biMap.get(key), value);
        assert.equal(biMap.inverse().get(value), key);
But I get these errors:
Multiple markers at this line
- Could not select overload for 'call' expression.
- Supplied parameters do not match any signature of call target:
    Could not apply type 'string' to argument 1 which is of type 'number'.
It seems like something is going wrong with the generics for the inverse() method.

Yep, all taken care of in develop now.

Thanks for the easy repro. Definitely something very wrong going on here, marked as active.

Looks like you just pushed the fix 10 mins ago - thanks for the quick fix!
