It’s that time again, folks! The
release-1.0 branch of Julia now contains the set of commits we’re planning to tag as v1.0.3. The list of commits included since v1.0.2 is available here. Like v1.0.1 and v1.0.2, this is a patch release, which means it should be strictly non-breaking for existing code and should introduce no new features at all, just bug fixes, documentation improvements, and performance enhancements.
We encourage users, package authors especially, to test out their code using a source build of the
release-1.0 branch to ensure there are no changes in behavior. (At this time binaries are not available for prereleases of patch versions.) A package evaluation run showed no regressions from v1.0.2, so we should be good, but extra testing and assurance is always worthwhile. If you run into any issues, please report them on Julia’s GitHub issue tracker.
Assuming all is well, we’ll move forward with releasing v1.0.3 in a few days.
