Yes, indeed, we have a section for this now. And yes, it is plural. And yes, maybe we release this often to prove we have tighter release cycles than java, now they switched to time-based versioning, because this is what it’s all about after all, isn’t it?
So, as with every good story, lets start at the beginning:
Pony 0.22.4 - Release Notes
Two small bugfixes around union types with the same elements and the
Pony 0.22.5 - Release Notes
High-priority bugfix for systems with NUMA enabled. Upgrading is highly recommended.
Pony 0.22.6 - Release Notes
This one fixes a performance regression introduced in the 0.22.X series and fixes a bug in tuple handling that could cause crashes during compilation. Here too, we recommend to upgrade.
Pony 0.23.0 - Release Notes
Whoa! Minor version increase. Why is that? Breaking change, that’s why! Blame RFC 56. But it is actually mainly a bugfix release for several bugs around tuple handling,
Promise.join(...) and writing big io-vectors to
File. Upgrading is recommended.
