Pony 0.19.1 Released

Last Thursday, Pony 0.19.1 was released. It’s a non-breaking change and includes a hot new feature so we think you should update soon. The highlight of 0.19.1 is definitely the implementation of RFC #45: “Lambda and Array Inference”. It’s an incredibly useful feature that greatly improves Pony’s programmer ergonomics. Check out the blog post announcing the release for full details.
