Julia Versions for ppc64le

Hello Julia community,

I am searching for the latest build that will compile on IBM Power (powerpc) for Linux. In an IBM dev blog linked here (IBM Developer), the command to download the version they used for Power for Julia 1.6.2:

wget https://julialang-s3.julialang.org/bin/linux/ppc64le/1.6/julia-1.6.2-linux-ppc64le.tar.gz

This works fine, but I am a math library developer and would like to get access to the libblastrampoline functionality in Julia 1.7 or higher. Are there any new versions of Julia available for Power? And if so, how to do I download them? The download page has no information on packages for ppc64le, which makes things difficult…

You can always build it yourself, but is is teir 3 and may be relatively broken.

You can find other and older builds here:

There is one under the v1.7.0-rc2 label

@jd-foster Thank you for finding that! I was able to download 1.7.0-rc2 and it contained the libblastrampoline library I was looking for.
