Got something you think should be featured? There’s a GitHub issue for that! Add a comment to the open “Last Week in Pony” issue.
Yesterday we released Pony 0.18.0. It includes a high-priority bug fix in the compiler. Upgrading as soon as possible is recommended. Please note amongst the other changes is a small breaking standard library change, so we advise reading the release notes before you proceed.
Items of note
- Audio from the August 16, 2017, Pony development sync is available. Includes some interesting conversations including a live “wtf is up with issue #1513”; the result of which was our 0.18.0 release.
News and Blog Posts
- “Charles” stopped by the #ponylang IRC channel during the week with a few questions and happened to mention a game he just started developing. Read “Stars take-off” to learn more.
