I see how one can download stable julia, old julia, or nightly julia. Right now, stable is 1.5.x and nightly appears to be just 1.7 (at least through the nightlies page). I really need 1.6. Is there somewhere those binaries are made available?
We actually do have “nightlies” for the
release-1.6 branch. The URLs look like this:
As with any nightly builds, you should expect that the 1.6 nighties are unstable.
Sure, it’s only in the twilight between branching and a release that the distinction is useful, but I’m happy for anyone to submit a PR to make this clearer for users.
