We’re pleased to announce that Julia’s
release-1.0 branch now contains the set of commits we’re planning to call v1.0.2. You can view the list of commits added to this release since v1.0.1 here. As a patch release, this should be strictly non-breaking for existing code and should introduce no new features at all, just bug fixes and a few performance improvements.
We invite users, especially package authors, to test their code using a source build of Julia’s
release-1.0 branch to ensure there are no changes in behavior aside from bugs being fixed. A package evaluation run showed no regressions from v1.0.1, so we should be all set, but it’s always worthwhile to have more testing and assurance, especially for patch releases. If you run into any issues, please be sure to report them on GitHub by submitting an issue.
Assuming all is well, we plan to move forward with a v1.0.2 release after a few days.
