Greetings! May I interest you in a fresh, new Julia version to go with your JuliaCon?
The second release candidate for Julia v1.5.0 is now available. As usual, binaries for macOS, Windows (32-, 64-bit), macOS (x86-64), FreeBSD (x86-64), glibc Linux (i686, x86-64, AArch64), and musl Linux (x86-64) at https://julialang.org/downloads, in the “upcoming release” section. Check out the NEWS file to see what will be new in 1.5.0 and the commit comparison to see what’s been included since 1.5.0-rc1.
As a release candidate, this should not be considered production-ready. Rather, it’s intended to give users a chance to try out their code with 1.5.0 prior to a full release. Note that 1.5 on Travis, AppVeyor (with Appveyor.jl) and Cirrus (with CirrusCI.jl) now points to 1.5.0-rc2.
Let us know in the issue tracker if you run into any issues. Please note that any bugs you may encounter should be posted there rather than being discussed in this thread to ensure visibility to the developers. If all goes well, we’ll move forward with a full release soon.
