Same procedure as every week, Matthias!
Pony 0.21.1 and 0.21.2 released
We got lucky this christmas and have been gifted with two new releases!
0.21.1 brought us
- Dynamic scheduler thread scaling based on workload and
- Support setting the binary executable name with –bin-name.
This release comes with improved stability and memory consumption of the runtime, so updating is recommended.
0.21.2 is a bugfix release for Dynamic Thread Scheduling, and thus it deserves our gratefulness even more.
Items of note
- Due to the holidays there has been no Pony Development Sync this week. The next one is scheduled for Wednesday, January 3, 2017 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.
- There is a new RFC out for Class and Actor field Docstrings.
