Julia v1.0-rc1 is now available

release

#1

The Julia developers are incredibly pleased to announce that v1.0.0-rc1, the first release candidate for the first major release of Julia, is now available! Binaries for the release candidate are available for Linux (i686, x86-64), Windows (32-, 64-bit), macOS, and FreeBSD (x86-64) at https://julialang.org/downloads.

As a prerelease, 1.0-rc1 should not be considered production-ready. It’s intended to give developers a chance to get ready for the release of 1.0 by trying it out and testing for issues. Most users should continue to use the latest release (0.6.4 at the time of writing) until 1.0 is fully released. Please report any issues to https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues.

In case you’re wondering, the primary difference between 0.7 and 1.0 is the removal of deprecations. Unsurprisingly this has proven to be rather breaking, and we’re all working hard to mitigate the issues. If you’re looking for an easy way to contribute to the Julia package ecosystem, fixing deprecations on 0.7 is a great way to start.

We hope you’re as excited about this as we are, and we hope you’ll download it and take it for a spin!


#2

It’s not posted on the download page yet.

Edit: It’s there now and 64-bit Windows version works at first glance.


#3

The mac url does not work!


#4

Works for linux


#5

I know I read somewhere that work was being done on having Julia use a more up-to-date LLVM, and I left with the impression that it’d switch before 1.0. The README still says 3.9 though; is the plan to switch some time later on a minor version? LLVM 3.9 is currently being packaged on my system solely for Julia, and it’d be really nice to eliminate that.


#6

The current LLVM version is 6.0. Good catch on the README! Would you like to make a Pull Request to fix it? You can do it by navigating to

and clicking the pencil icon.


#7

Can confirm that mac URL is not working


#8

I understood this, but for some reason thought that there would be a time period between the v0.7 and v1.0 releases, to allow the packages to catch up (surprisingly many, in fact, are not ready for v0.7 at the moment).


#9

I noticed that the default test script on travis-ci for 1.0.0-rc1 is broken. Where is the best place to report this? (Here is an example log).


#10

The Windows download is working!
Yaaay!

VideoIO package fails miserably when I pkg add it… will report to VideoIO though!


#11

This is not looking good with Images.jl
If this is an Images problem I will open an issue over there. Please tell me that Images is .0 compatible - it is a pretty fundamental package.

Very sorry about the macOS binaries, folks! They were inadvertently uploaded out a level in the file tree. They’ve been fixed now, and so the Mac links should now work. For convenience:

#13

What is the issue? Do you get any actual errors?


#14

Regarding Images.jl yes - I have cut and pasted the errors below.

Regarding VideoIO - this is a GTK problem and I have seen similar in the past. Issue opened with VideoIO on GitHub

#15

Gtk.jl still does not work on 0.7 but there is a branch with quite some progress:

Unfortunately there is a StackOverFlow Error which I have not been able to track down. Help is appreciated.


#16

I thought that as well but core devs apparently want to release them close together:

I think for Julia adaptors it is a very bad experience when 1.0 is released but the package ecosystem is not ready. Further I do not see any rush. When 0.7 is available we all can use it as if it were 1.0. Just remove the deprecation warnings and they are the same. Why not have a positive press release with most packages working for 1.0?

One crucial aspect is that the migration from 0.6 to 0.7/1.0 is not very easy. Its like Python2 to Python3. I have various code where there is no solution for in 0.7 that worked fine in 0.6. Just as an instance mmap does not work anymore in many cases (https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/28424) and there is no real solution to that. A workaround with reinterpret works but is slow.


#17

I 100% agree with that.
I think there are a numer of packages (Distributions, DataFrames, PyCall, simply the popular ones on pulse) which should work flawlessly before releasing 1.0.


#18

DataFrames version 0.13 (released yesterday - thanks to @quinnj) should work cleanly on 1.0 (I am testing it today and all works). If you find any problems please submit an issue.


#19

is there an overview which packages work and which not?

I would hope that all Images packages are working. And of course Gtk where some help might be needed.


#20

Parts of the web stack are also transitioning from HttpServer to HTTP during this update, so things are not yet fully functional (at least for Blink, WebIO and to a lesser extent Mux).
