I got a new Ubuntu Xenial (16.04) workstation at my new job.
I absolutely know it is recommended to download Julia from julialang.org , however out of curiosity I used apt-get to install the distro supplied Julia. Version 0.4.5
Again I realise Xenial dates from 2016 so this reflects the version.
I guess what I am saying is this might cause a lot of confusion when 0.7 and 1.0 comes along.
Even in Artful )17) the Julia version is 0.4.7
I can see this causing a lot of confusion when Julia 1.0 is released. Julia 0.4.7 is very deprecated.
Lik eit or not, many people will try to use the distro supplied versions. I can imagine that also in companies the distro supplied versions will be the onyl ones supported. Thsi is of course where JuliaPro comes in!
Is the Ubuntu maintainer on this discourse?
