Julia v1.7.0-beta3 installs old Turing version

] add Turing in the REPL of a fresh Julia v1.7.0-beta3 install on Windows with an emtpy .julia folder installs Turing v0.15.1 instead of the most recent v0.17.0.

] add Turing@v0.17.0 results in an unsatisfiable requirement error for the package Libtask, due to Libtask_jll:

Any suggestions on how to fix or work around this?

Looks like you need to remove AdvancedPS as it restricts compat with LibTask?

Incidentally it’s not recommended to install packages in the default environment, it’s better to have project specific environments for whatever concrete thing you’re working on, both to have reproducibility and minimise the likelihood of compat issues like the one you’re seeing here.

This also happens in a clean environment. The reason for this is completely within the dependencies of Turing:

  • Turing 0.17.0 requires AdvancedPS 0.2.4 (the latest version)
  • AdvancedPS 0.2.4 requires Libtask 0.5.3 (the latest version).
  • Libtask 0.5.3 requires Libtask_jll 0.4, which requires Julia 1.6 (not older, not newer).

you need to add both Turing and Libtask with #master

Thanks for the explanations and suggestions!

Adding Libtask#master and Turing#master works without conflicts, but test Libtask throws an error - I filed an issue here.
