In case people missed the announcement in the 0.6 release timeline thread, Julia 0.6-alpha has been released:
0.6 alpha has been tagged and binaries are available. You can now use “0.6” on Travis, or “0.6-latest” on Appveyor, and it will use the most recently tagged pre-release or release candidate. We haven’t branched release-0.6 off of master yet though and probably won’t until we go through a beta and a few release candidates, whenever there are enough blocked feature PR’s to make it worth branching. So for now the nightlies will be more up-to-date with bug fixes but should be functionally equivalent. Please report anything that regresses between this alpha and nightlies.
Maintainers of projects and packages:
- Please update your packages now and report any issues you encounter
Now is a good time to upgrade your projects too
- if it works now, it should work in 0.6 final
- if it doesn’t work, now is the time to report an issue so that we have a change to address it
There should be a 0.6-beta out in about a week or so, at which point it’s really time to upgrade.
