Julia 1.3 is here! https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/blob/v1.3.0/NEWS.md
I've been constantly looking up Julia and its juicy promises since back in 0.4, I keep coming back but I always find the same issue
the egregious loadtimes
...it's still going to be ridiculously slow, isn't it?
wait hold up
that wasn't disastrous
(keep in mind: this is a Surface with a decent SSD!)
Oh great, Julia doesn't know whenever packages have failed installing and are broken... even if caused by Ctrl-C
At least you can do Pkg.build to amend broken packages, apparently
Load times have definitely improved and are now acceptable... but that is still slow.
my program seems to be buggy
this is what programming was invented for
honestly, Julia seems like fun, I forgot that
I'll now share this script to my Mac and see how it performs
Oh yeah, this is definitely performing decently!
Slow, but decently.
If you deliver the dependencies as precompiled packages in distros, I can see this working out well.
