We have landed a fix to the underlying time source for Time.nanos() on Apple Silicon.

Items of note

  • Audio from the 2021-11-09 Pony development sync call is available.

  • We have landed a fix to the underlying time source for Time.nanos() on Apple Silicon. Without this fix, users of the timers package would observe timers firing with significant delay. If you’re using ponyc on ARM macOS, we recommend you upgrade by building from source from the main branch.
