Julia 0.5.1 released



Hello all! The latest bugfix release of the Julia 0.5.x line has been released. Binaries are available from the usual place, and as is typical with such things, please report all issues to either the issue tracker or on discourse.

This is a bugfix release, see this commit log for the list of bugs fixed between 0.5.0 and 0.5.1. Julia 0.6 is in feature freeze and will be tagging a beta then release candidates over the next few weeks, but if necessary there may be more bugfix backport releases to the 0.5.x line. If you are a package author and want to rely on functionality that did not work in the 0.5.0 release but does work in 0.5.1 in your package, please be sure to change the minimum julia version in your REQUIRE file to 0.5.1 accordingly. If you’re not sure about this, you can test your package specifically against older patch releases on Travis and/or locally.

This is a recommended upgrade for anyone using previous releases, and should act as a drop-in replacement. If you find any regressions relative to previous releases, please let us know.




Seems the application is named Julia-0.5 in the dmg file (url below) rather than Julia-0.5.1, at least when I downloaded it right now (March 7th 09:20CET).



I believe that that is deliberate, so that you don’t have to change your symlinks or aliases for just bugfix releases.
