Items of note

  • LLVM 3.7.1 and 3.8.1 support has been deprecated with the merge of PR 2461.
  • We are testing out moving some of our CI processing from TravisCI over to a container based one running on CircleCI. The first step? Moving our Linux LLVM 5.0.1 testing to CircleCI. If that goes well, we’ll be moving other Linux jobs from TravisCI to CircleCI. MacOS CI jobs will remain on TravisCI and Windows jobs will remain on Appveyor.
  • The Pony changelog tool had two new versions released: 0.2.1 and 0.2.2. Amongst other fixes those releases made it available via Docker Hub!

Pony Development Sync

The first Development Sync Call this year happened on January 3rd this year, just in time. Check out the audio recording.

The next one is scheduled for Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 03:30 PM (GMT-05:00) America/New York via zoom. Join the Dev Mailing List to get all the details. We’d love to have you there.
