Last Week In Pony is a weekly blog post to catch you up on the latest news for the Pony programming language. To learn more about Pony check out our website, our Twitter account @ponylang, or our Zulip community.

Got something you think should be featured? There’s a GitHub issue for that! Add a comment to the open “Last Week in Pony” issue.

Items of note

  • Pony 0.28.1 has been released! Check out the release notes to learn more.

  • Recording of the June 4, 2019 Pony developer sync is available here. A lot of time was spent talking about various language design points. PLT geeks will enjoy this meeting more than our usual ones.

  • The Zulip community has surpassed the 200 member mark.

  • Earlier this week, GitHub introduced a new feature “Generate new repositories with repository templates”. This is wonderful news who are using the Pony library project starter which will now be easier to use. Give it try!

  • We could use some assistance from someone who knows their way around LLVM to get Pony compiling with LLVM 8: ponylang/ponyc#3034
