jq supports functions and new keywords.

Jq has now added support for:

  1. Functions – {x+1}. Unnamed parameters beyond x don’t yuet work so please name all yoru parameters.
  2. Keyed table operations: xkey, 1!, 2!, keys, value.
  3. New keywords supported: in, distinct, inter, except, rank, sv, vs, sum, prd, xlog.
  4. Improved compatibility and support of: null, avg, var, iasc, upper, lower, fills, fill, ^, sublist, prds, sums.

The added keywords in most cases will only support the most common types and arguments.
Mixed lists in particular are not handled well by most keywords but we will continue to improve.
