Julia 0.6 does not respect JULIA_PKDIR environmnt variable?



Contrary to all previous Julia versions, 0.6 writes the .julia dir under (my case) C:\Users\j.julia but I have clearly sated that I want it on a different directory as indicated in

JULIA_PKDIR = c:\j.julia

Repeating me, the above has worked since julia 2.x but apparently not anymore.


Presumably that’s a typo, you meant JULIA_PKGDIR?


Ops, no, it was not a typo. I must have screwed that env var sometime after 0.5. Correcting it brings things back to normal (that, it avoid the c:\Users black hole directory.
