Julia v1.9.0-beta2 is now available

The Julia developers are pleased to announce that v1.9.0-beta2, the second beta version for the upcoming 1.9 stable series, is now available. Binaries are available for download at https://julialang.org/downloads in the “upcoming release” section for the following platforms, listed here by support tier:

  • Tier 1:
    • Linux x86_64 (glibc)
    • Linux i686 (glibc)
    • macOS x86_64 (Intel or Rosetta)
    • Window x86_64
  • Tier 2:
    • FreeBSD x86_64
    • Linux AArch64 (glibc)
    • Linux x86_64 (musl)
    • macOS AArch64 (M-series)
    • Windows i686

As a beta version, 1.9.0-beta2 should not be considered production-ready. Rather, it’s intended to give users, especially package developers, a chance to try out their code with 1.9.0 prior to a full release. Check out the NEWS file to see what will be new in 1.9.0.

Note that 1.9 on Travis, AppVeyor, and Cirrus now refers to 1.9.0-beta2. On GitHub Actions, use ~1.9.0-0.

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.

P.S. Wondering where 1.9.0-beta1 went? The tag exists but it was not fully released due to an issue fixed in beta2 that made our code signing on macOS insufficient for verification. Since macOS is a tier 1 platform, we can’t release without it.
