#2

You should not expect packages to work well (at all) on nightly.


#3

I have been moving production code in Julia since 0.3, so I certainly have no expectations.

Just starting to dip into moving my work to 0.7, and came across this but couldn’t find any specifically related issues.

Do you have anything more specific to suggest?


#4

You could fix the error and make a pull request. Seems to be caused by a recent module reorganization, should be straightforward.


#5

LOL, My error…I actually fixed it and couldn’t understand why it wasn’t working, hence my query. I only now realized that out of habit I had loaded IJulia from the 0.6 dir into my editor.
