New to Julia, have version 1.3
So to figure out the new name of a function, I would need to install julia 0.7 ?
I keep running into this issue, and currently search the web for ‘julia <old_function_name> deprecated’
Is there a better way to handle this? I am having no luck finding what realmax(Float64) might have turned into!
You don’t have to worry too much about this if you just started using Julia and using some Julia 1.x version .
There were many breaking changes from 0.6 to 1.0 (with 0.7 providing the deprecation warnings), as 1.0 was the first version with API stability guaranteed. Moving forward, breaking changes between different 1.x.y versions are not allowed, only new features and bug fixes. So if you write some code which works with Julia 1.3 you can be rest assured that it will also work for later 1.x versions of Julia.
When looking at tutorials treat ones that use v0.6 as possibly outdated and try to find newer ones if possible.
In general it is good to have a look at the official documentation when searching for some functionality, and as you have seen you can also search this forum (a lot of times someone already asked a similar question) or ask here.
