Last Week in Pony - February 6, 2022

Sunday, February 06, 2022 | Posted in Last Week in Pony

It was a busy week in Pony. Pony 0.47.0 was released including a breaking change “Don’t allow interfaces to have private methods”. The change resulted in a number of library needed releases to work after the change.

It was also a busy week with RFCS. 3 new RFCs were opened, 1 was implemented, and another has had continued discussion.

Items of note

  • Sean T. Allen held his second weekly “office hours” meeting. It was another good week of discussing many things Pony including what needs to be done to the “Change FFI to be disallowed by default” RFC to get it ready for review. Got Pony related questions or conversation? Join Sean every Friday at 15:00 Eastern US on Zoom.
  • Audio from the February 1st Pony development sync is available.
