I noticed some rather strange behavior running julia 0.6.2. On a ‘fresh’ instance of julia without any packages,
Matrix(1.0I, 3, 3)
does not work. However, as soon as I load the BenchmarkTools package, the identity matrix is returned as it would be expected in julia 0.7.
Skimming the source code of BenchmarkTools I did not find a new constructor for the Matrix type…
Does anyone know what is going on?
