At long last, we can announce the final release of Julia 0.5.0! See the release notes at https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/blob/release-0.5/NEWS.md
for more details, and expect a blog post with some highlights within the next few days. Binaries are available from the usual place
, and please report all issues to either the issue tracker
or email the julia-users list. Don't CC julia-news, which is intended to be low-volume, if you reply to this message.
thanks to all the contributors, package authors, users and reporters of
issues who helped us get here. We'll be releasing regular monthly
bugfix backports from the 0.5.x line, while major feature work is
ongoing on master for 0.6-dev. Enjoy!
We haven't made the change just yet, but to package authors: please be aware that `release` on Travis CI for `language: julia` will change meaning to 0.5 shortly. So if you want to continue supporting Julia 0.4 in your package, please update your .travis.yml file to have an "- 0.4" entry under `julia:` versions. When you want to drop support for Julia 0.4, update your REQUIRE file to list `julia 0.5` as a lower bound, and the next time you tag the package be sure to increment the minor or major version number via `PkgDev.tag(pkgname, :minor)`.
