There are finally again over 3000 registered Julia packages (there were more in the past, then those not compatible with Julia 1.0 thrown out of the registry).
This is not yet reflected at Juliacomputing.com while it is at Julialang.org, where I proposed the change at its Github. I had done so in the past (then not realizing jll packages were not wanted in the count), and again recently.
I liked the sound of “over 3,000”, more than “over 2,800”.
Actually there are 3307 packages if you include jll packages, but without them there are 3003 packages and counting (a lot more waiting with PRs to the registry to get them registered).
I’m just amazed by the Julia ecosystem, the breath and depth, not just for e.g. quantum computing (smallest particles) to AstroJulia (Celeste.jl, for largest survey of the whole Universe), but also ExoJulia, seemingly to help in finding exoplanes.
The longest names package names are, some of the very specific packages:

Someone asked for the formula for the number of packages, and it’s:
3321 (lines) - 13 - 304 (count of JLLs, by searching for _jll", in the file, with the comma) =
