Last Week in Pony - July 19, 2020

Sunday, July 19, 2020 | Posted in Last Week in Pony

We have some nice improvements to the website FAQ and corral documentation. RFC 67 has been approved and implemented!

Items of note

  • The recording of the July 14, 2020 Pony Development Sync is now available: https://sync-recordings.ponylang.io/r/2020_07_14.m4a

  • Ryan Hagenson has added a new FAQ to the website on when Pony programs terminate. It’s a question that comes up semi-regularly on the Zulip. Thanks Ryan for adding the FAQ.

  • “Adeel” aka @adeel41 recently tried to get started with corral the in-development Pony dependency manager. He ran into some trouble. He then stepped up and added a bunch of excellent getting started documentation and made it rock by working with Ryan Hagenson and Sean T. Allen. You rock Adeel. Thank you. May all your Ponying be fruitful.
