Distributions.jl in 0.7.0-beta


I’m trying to use julia-0.7.0-beta and port my packages for release. My package depends on Distributions.jl. I tried to install it using new Pkg interface but is getting this error:

Is Distributions.jl not ready for 0.7.0 or am I doing something wrong?

With Thanks,


You may want to try julia v0.7.0-beta2, available from https://julialang.org/downloads

The Statistics package is in the standard library for 0.7.0-beta2 but I’m not sure about the earlier beta release.


Thanks :slight_smile: Moving to beta2 fixed the problem.
