I am beginning to use Julia 1.0.
Pkg.dir() no longer seems to work (and has no docs). What has replaced it?
Pkg.status() works differently. Alas, these are just minor questions. I have a reason for posting to development"
Should the default on
Pkg.add()be to do the first-time compilation right away, too? Who would want to add a package and not run it? Is there a reason?
Do packages have a variable that tells the package manager whether they have been ported/tested on a particular julia version? (This is not just a minimum Julia version.) I am asking because
TimeSerieshave a successful
Pkg.add(), but both flunk on first-time compilation (and I have a fresh julia 1.0). So I am wondering whether these two packages [as examples] have made the jump from 0.6 to 1.0. if they have, then not very successfully so. if they have not, then the
Pkg.add()should have told me this.
