Switching from 1.1 to 1.2, more startup slowness after loading startup file

I understand that there may be some slowness, and I don’t mind it so much, but when I switched from 1.1 to 1.2, Julia became much slower after manually loading a startup file. Though the cursor blinks after loading, pressing anything, even if you press it minutes later, will cause the expected result to come much later (half a minute maybe). This was never so in 1.1.

What can I do about it?

Please try out the 1.3 RC from https://julialang.org/downloads/. There is a known startup regression in 1.2.

Also, it would be good to give more information. What OS are you running, are you running with Juno or just a normal REPL etc.

That is clear. It was in the normal REPL.

I don’t mind it so much to switch already. At least now I know better about it and that it’s not some strange exception.

Half a minute sounds very long though…

Doesn’t bother me.
