just received yesterday the Julia Computing Newsletter where it states that Julia 1.0 would/could be released in 2017 Q2 or Q3. Well, that is good news indeed if it’s the case! I guess I expected 1.0 to be out in 2 or even 3 years. Are we that close to a 1.0 release?
I ask because this would imply that I should begin to promote the language a bit more in my entourage, where lots of people are interested but are waiting for something more “stable” in terms of functions names, etc…
N.B. I know that 1.0 will be there “when it’s ready”. I’m merely wondering if it’s closer to a couple of months or closer to 2-3 years (as I expected).
