Can't install SampledSignals package because of "julia compatibility requirements to versions" ... 1.0.0


#1

I installed Julia 1.0.3 (last stable release at time of writing this), but seems like SampledSignals does not work with this version. I thought about installing Julia 1.0.0, but can’t find an installable binary of it.

Any suggestions?

(v1.0) pkg> add SampledSignals

It looks like SampledSignals has a new version which support Julia 1.0, but that version hasn’t officially been released yet (it’s waiting on this: https://github.com/JuliaLang/METADATA.jl/pull/19905 to be merged).

Don’t worry about trying to install Julia 1.0.0: the set of available packages will always be the same for any 1.0.x version. Instead, you can just install the master branch of the package:

pkg> add SampledSignals#master

Awesome! Thanks for the fast reply. And good to know that this notation (#master) seems to bypass the version requirements
