The Julia developers are pleased to announce the release of Julia v1.9.0, the ninth minor release in the 1.x series. Some folks put together a blog post highlighting some of the most exciting new features in 1.9 and we encourage everyone to check it out. As usual, there is also the NEWS file for the full set of release notes.
As a minor release, v1.9.0 contains no breaking changes, only new features, performance improvements, and marginal, non-disruptive changes in behavior. Head over to https://julialang.org/downloads to download 1.9 for macOS (Intel and M1 processors), Windows (32- and 64-bit), glibc Linux (x86, x86_64, and AArch64), musl Linux (x86_64), and FreeBSD (x86_64).
We encourage everyone to give it a try. Packages can test with 1.9.0 on CI by specifying
1.9 on Travis, AppVeyor , Cirrus, and (soon ) GitHub Actions . As always, let us know in the issue tracker if you run into any issues.
