# Comparing Plot Outputs for Different Versions of Julia

Hello!
I’m working on solving PDEs in julia and producing plots of their solutions for different lengths of time.
I was having a lot of issues when using Julia v-1.9.0. When I increased the time in this specific setting past t=10, I had no issues with v-1.8.1 but the graphs fall apart when I use v-1.9.0 - see below

here is a copy of my code

Does anyone know why this is happening? Or how to make them work properly on v-1.9.0?
Thanks!

Can you post the output of `] st` for both versions?

First thing I’d try is to run `] update` on both and see where that leaves you
