ANN: The JuliaPro distribution by Julia Computing

announcement

#1

Hello everyone,

I want to make a quick announcement about the JuliaPro distribution that we at Julia Computing have put together and made available for download. The developer edition is free, and we also have an enterprise edition with paid support.

It has taken us a long time to put together a distribution including Julia, Juno, and a variety of precompiled packages in one single download. We want to make Julia much easier for new users of Julia, and this is one small step in that direction.

Please do try it out and send us feedback. This is just the beginning and we have a long way to go.

JuliaPro was recently also included in Microsoft’s Data Science Virtual Machine for Azure:

While you wait for the large download - do check out our redesigned website as well, which has a number of case studies, press releases and posts. It should give you ample ammunition to spread Julia in your own organization. :slight_smile:

Lyndon White did a nice review of the distribution:

Downloading seems to require a login/registration, but the login page does not say what you do with the data you collect. Note that I am not suggesting that you are doing anything bad, just that I like to know.


#4

This is brilliant – excel integration is a killer feature :100:


#5

I tried to install (just for fun) and got this error. This is on OS X 10.11.6. I deleted it and tried again and received the same error.

I have a functioning Version 0.5.0 already, if that is relevant.


#6

I am ridiculously excited about this.


#7

Tried this out at work the other day without issues. Certainly makes things a lot simpler.


#8

How do i get the linux download?


#9

There’s no Linux version yet – we figured getting it working for Windows and macOS was a higher priority since Linux users tend to be more technically savvy. But we’ll be working on that as well.


#10

Could you send the /var/log/install.log file ?


#11

On average. I was interested in “A debugger, which is also integrated with the IDE” as i still have problems to get Gallium working …


#12

Why don’t you open a new thread and describe what your problems are with Gallium?


#13

We basically only ask for email, name, and organization. We’ll use the information to communicate about new products, updates, seek feedback and keep in touch. Our privacy policy should be up on the website soon too.


#14

Obviously happy to see Optim in there.

I have a question though, what does “a variety of precompiled packages” mean? That if you download it and open Julia, Optim is already precompiled? Depending on how often you update these binaries, new users might want to Pkg.update() as the first thing they do, but then all updated packages have to be “precompiled” again, right? Or do you have a separate channel for updating theses “supported” packages? Just trying to understand the meaning of “supported”/“precompiled” in this context!


#15

We plan to update these binaries frequently. At least once a month. It is hard to get a good tested build across all packages we currently ship - so the preference is to not Pkg.update() and just get a new JuliaPro release. Once Pkg3 releases, we hope to be able to do this with finer granularity.

Currently, we precompile everything in order to have a good first experience. This turned out to be a non-trivial amount of work. Of course, Pkg.update() will work if you do it, but then all the usual caveats apply.

A lot of moving parts for now, but we figured that the best starting point is to put everything together in a single installer and release on a regular basis. As Pkg3 releases, we can include many more things and also have finer granularity of what is installed.


Package update error, Optim.jl
#16

This was on Windows 7, so I don’t think that would exist.


#17

Could you send the /var/log/install.log file ?


#18

Sure. I can post it.

I think this is the relevant section:

#19

My gut feeling is that your /Users/austinbean/.juliarc.jl is coming in the way of this installation. Can you remove this file and then try to install ?


#20

Yes, you are correct. I think it was looking for “OhMyREPL” and couldn’t find it.

Removing .juliarc.jl let the install complete and the program seems to work.

Replacing .juliarc.jl it in its original location afterward and opening JuliaPro then generates an error because it’s looking for that package - I guess it looks for .juliarc ?
