Juliabox currently provides the older versions of DataFrames (
0.10.x) and related packages (prior to the
Nullables -> Missings change). We are now ready to upgrade the entire set of built in packages to use the latest versions of old packages.
While we kept the old version of packages to ensure some stability, and allow the ecosystem to synchronise, we are now in a situation where almost all dependencies have moved to the new DataFrames. This has caused problems in installing new packages on Juliabox. As a result, we feel this is now the right time to make this change.
This upgrade will occur around midnight EST, Monday night, Tuesday morning. There will be a small downtime of upto 10 minutes, and any existing sessions might be reset.
This change might be slightly disruptive for some users. We would urge you to test your notebooks if you depend on DataFrames or Nullables. Also, please reset any packages you have installed yourself on Juliabox, otherwise you will see Kernel Died messages.
Paid customers who use custom images will continue to use those, and thus will see no changes.
