I’m pitching julia for a major project right now, and any information I could get about the current plans for 1.0 would help enormously. Here are some specific questions, I understand that some of them probably don’t have firm answers at this point, but even the current thinking would help me:
- What is the current plan for a timeline? I assume that the original plan of 1.0 at juliacon 2017 is off the table? Any more recent thoughts on that?
- Will 1.0 deprecate things? If I understand the current deprecation guidelines, anything that runs on julia 0.6 without deprecation warnings should run on 1.0, right? Because anything that didn’t throw deprecation warnings on 0.6 won’t be removed from 1.0? But will 1.0 deprecate new things, or was all of that done in 0.6?
- I looked at the 1.0 milestone on github, and that seems like a very long list. Has that list just accumulated all the things that were perpetually moved back, or is this a triaged list of things that actually are planned for 1.0?
In any case, any thoughts from the core group about any of this would really help me right now.
