If you are not using Emacs, you can ignore this topic.
julia-repl contained a workaround for the
CHA ANSI term sequence which did not play well with
ansi-term in Emacs. This was fixed in
v0.6.0. I am in the process of getting julia-repl ready for MELPA, and would prefer to remove the workaround for technical reasons, unless there are some people here who use
v0.5.*. So please let me know.
If you are only using
julia-mode in Emacs, and/or
ESS, this does not affect you.
