Installing Burst package yields a compilation error

Package: Burst


When attempting to install the Project Tiny package in 2019.3.0a6, I get this compilation error:

Library\PackageCache\com.unity.burst@1.0.4\Editor\BurstAotCompiler.cs(638,32): error CS7036: There is no argument given that corresponds to the required formal parameter 'exceptionType' of 'BuildReport.AddMessage(LogType, string, string)'

This makes the pacakge unuable.

To reproduce:
- create a new Unity project in 2019.3.0a6
- install Burst Version 1.0.4
- notice the compilation error after the package gets installed

Cannot reproduce in Unity Editor 2019.3.0a7 or 2019.2.0b7

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Axiochus. =) Updating to a preview of the already installed packages by showing all versions did the trick. =)

    I resolved this by manually installing the preview version of the burst compiler. This was after the stable version of burst compiler was installed automatically when I installed the Entities package.

    Bit of a mistake in my last post: I meant my version was 2019.3.0a6, and if you can see Burst in your package manager already just click the dropdown arrow on it and "See all versions"; you should be able to see the preview package version that way aswell. For me, Burst wasn't even showing up when I had it filtering to "All Packages" due to it being a dependency and whatever change they made to the alpha package manager.

    I managed to get rid of the compile error on 2019.0.3a6, but I don't know if this will cause other issues.
    The burst compiler package wasn't even being listed because it was a dependency.
    I open my manifest.json and added the burst package, then found out there was a preview version available.
    If burst is already in your manifest.json go ahead and add this, or if it is replace it with this:
    "com.unity.burst": "1.1.0-preview.2",
    This may break something else, but at least it compiles and you can address other issues as they come up

    Open Package Manager => Advanced => Reset packages to defaults => Reinstall the packages you need!

    Installing the Jobs package causes the same error with 2019.3.0a7. Trying to test the ParticleSystemJob.
