Items of note
Audio from the October 1st, 2019 Pony sync is available here. This call is a little different than our usual sync calls. We didn’t discuss any open issues, PRs, and whatnot. Instead, we discussed some issues around how we are going to handle LLVM going forward.
Version 0.1.1 of the library-scaffolding-generator has been released. It contains a fix for a syntax error in the generated Makefile. Thanks to Ryan H for the fix!
There’s been a change to how we build the
alpineponyc Docker images. This probably doesn’t affect you unless you have CI set up for a personal Pony project. Prior to Saturday, October 5th, the
alpineimages were built on DockerHub. As of the 5th, the images are now built on CircleCI and pushed to DockerHub. Everything should be exactly the same as before other than a change in where the images are built. If you experience any oddities that you didn’t experience prior to this change, please stop by the zulip and let us know.
