Is anyone using v0.7 on Windows10?


#1

As I read a date of December 15 somewhere (for an alpha version or something similar) I thought I could start looking into v0.7 today (irrespective whether that date will be met or not)

Besides a number of build errors I also get errors when using Revise or CSV. See below

Notably, some packages are ‘working’ (no error when using them, e.g.DataFrames, BenchmarkTools).
Is it too early to try v0.7?
Or am I doing something wrong?

Are you using master of Revise? Also I think this branch of DataStructures is needed https://github.com/JuliaCollections/DataStructures.jl/pull/348


#3

Well, you do nothing wrong. 0.7 is in development and package ecosystem will catch up, soon.
Just keep reporting issues or file PRs if you know how solve them.


#4

Thank you both.
I simply used Pkg.add.
I will take a look which branch/tag that is.
Well opening issues is the easier part. Fixing them when its related to BinDeps or WinRPM seems difficult to me (opposed to fixing julia scripts).


#5

I’m here since 2012 and i still have problems to understand BinDeps and/or WinRPM…


#6

Makes two of us.


#7

I use the version 0.7.0-DEV.2158 now, and any new nightly-build version is incompatible with many packages.
