Items of note

  • Audio from the August 3rd, 2021 Pony development sync is available: https://sync-recordings.ponylang.io/r/2021_08_03.m4a

  • Andreas Stührk, aka @trundle, has donated his templating library to the ponylang organization. We plan on using it in a variety of ponylang organization projects starting with a new Pony based version of the release notes reminder action. If you aren’t familiar with Andreas’ library, you can find it at ponylang/pony-templates. Andreas remains a contributor to the library and we look forward to pushing it forward with him. Expect to see some housekeeping work on it in the near future including:

    • a license update to BSD-2 clause
    • a repository rename from pony-templates to templates
    • lots more

Releases

  • Version 0.43.1 of ponylang/ponyc has been released. See the release notes for more details.

  • Version 0.2.0 of ponylang/templates has been released. See the release notes for more details.
