Timeline for Pkg3?


#1

Is there any idea on the timeline for Pkg3? Is this something for pre-1.0 or a 2.0 kind of thing?


1.0 roadmap
#2

I’m actively working on it and to some extent it’s a “when I get to it” thing, but it should be ready for preview early in the 0.6 cycle, which should give a good amount of time for testing and development so that it can be the package manager by 1.0. Sorry, that’s not a very specific or firm timeline.


#3

raises the question: Where?


#4

Thanks. I am mostly worried since I stopped hearing about it, and JuliaCon is coming up so it seemed like it might miss 1.0.


#5

Forgive my idle curiosity (and I’m sure it’s the last thing on your mind!), but is it going to called Pkg3 or is it a replacement for Pkg?


#6

It’s a replacement. The working name is Pkg3 and it will initially have that module name so as not to conflict with the existing Pkg module. I did a similar thing with the current Pkg, which was initially called Pkg2 and lived alongside the original Pkg in Base.


#7

In a private repo with tons of tiny junk commits with commit message “wip”.
