Hello all, I was looking through the
NEWS.md and noticed that the
Pkg code is now coming from the
Pkg repo, rather than getting copied into
julia or whatever it was that was happening previously.
This raised a number of questions in my mind about how the versioning of
Pkg itself will work. I apologize if these have been asked already, but I did not see that anywhere.
- Will the latest version of
Pkgat the time of a
juliarelease be the
Pkgused by that version of
juliaby default? (e.g. v1.1.3 would be the version in Julia 1.1)
- What’s the simplest way of upgrading
Pkgindependently from the Julia version? (e.g. in cases where one needs bug fixes in
Pkgbut the next
juliais not released yet) Does it still require one to rebuild Julia?
- Is there any way of tracking the version of
Pkgfrom within Julia itself the way one can do this for any other package?
