Pony 0.19.0 Released

Yesterday Pony 0.19.0 was released. The release contains breaking changes. If you don’t use the Itertools package then upgrading should be painless. If you do use Itertools, the process should be relatively straightforward. MacOS, FreeBSD and Dragonfly BSD users are recommended to upgrade as soon as possible to fix a race condition on the kqueue event system. More details information is available in the release notes.
