Julia v1.6.2 has been released

Julia version 1.6.2, the second patch release in the 1.6 series of releases, is now available. You can get binaries for glibc Linux (i686, x86-64, AArch64, ARMv7), musl Linux (x86-64), FreeBSD (x86-64), macOS (x86-64), and Windows (32-, 64-bit) at https://julialang.org/downloads.

As a patch release, 1.6.2 contains no new features or breaking changes, only bug fixes, documentation improvements, and performance improvements. You can see the list of commits included since 1.6.1 here. We recommend anyone currently using 1.6.0 or 1.6.1 upgrade to 1.6.2.

Note that 1.6 on Travis, AppVeyor, Cirrus, and (soon) GitHub Actions now refers to 1.6.2.

Enjoy!
