Items of Note

Ubuntu 24.04 support is coming

We are now creating prebuilt ponyc binaries for Ubuntu 24.04. Currently, nightly builds are available. The next release of ponyc will have a version built for Ubuntu 24.04.

Ponyup has been updated to recognize and support Ubuntu 24.04. If you’re using ponyup, you should be able to use it to install ponyc on Ubuntu 24.04. You’ll need to update your ponyup installation to get the new Ubuntu 24.04 support.
