The second release candidate for Julia v1.3.0 is now available. Get binaries for Linux (i686, x86-64, ARMv7, AArch64), FreeBSD (x86-64), Windows (32-, 64-bit), and macOS at https://julialang.org/downloads. Check out the NEWS file to see what will be new in 1.3.0 and see the list of commits included since 1.3.0-rc1 here.
As a release candidate, this should not be considered production-ready; it’s intended to give users a chance to try out their code with 1.3.0 prior to a full release. Note that 1.3 on Travis AppVeyor, and Cirrus CI now points to 1.3.0-rc2.
The versioning for the 1.3 prereleases is a bit misleading (my fault), so even though this is labeled a release candidate, we know it won’t be the last RC; we’re already working on the next one. Apologies for the confusion, but do note that 1.3 is feature frozen, so any remaining changes in these RCs are simply bugfixes.
As usual, let us know in the issue tracker if you run into any issues.
