I’m teaching a course using julia. it starts around the 20th of january. based on stefan’s announcement here: 0.6 release timeline I’m uncertain of what the best option is for my students. I’m inclined to run the course on v0.5, but I’m afraid that students will run into trouble some time mid February when they do
Pkg.add("DataFrames"), for example. In the best case they will see a bunch of deprecation warnings, but some packages may actually not work, if the maintainer uses v0.6 functionality. Having students check out a previous release of a package is an option that I would like to avoid.
any thoughts on this are helpful. thanks!
