Is it possible to use Pkg3 with Julia 0.6?


#1

I am trying to use Julia on a cluster where all of my persistent directories are accessed over NFS. Thus the package manager is basically unusable due to the well-documented slowness of Pkg2 on NFS.

Is it possible to install and use Pkg3 on Julia 0.6.3 to avoid this problem?


#2

Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure the answer is no. Pkg3 relies on improvements in the internal package loading mechanisms which are only present in 0.7.
