What's new in Elixir v1.9 (dev)

Hi everyone, we are back with another edition of What’s new in Elixir! Let’s get started.

Plus many other enhancements and bug fixes. If you want to give those features a try, you can always <a href=”https://elixir-lang.org/install.html#compiling-from-source-unix-and-mingw” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>compile Elixir from source</a>. If you are using version managers, such as <code>asdf</code>, they likely have built-in mechanisms to compile from master too.

As usual, in the last weeks we have done extensive work on the issues tracker, bringing the number of open issues to below 10 and the number of pending PRs to below 5 (at the time of writing). We are always proud of how much work and care goes into the issues tracker, thanks everyone who contributed! For a complete listing of all changes, <a href=”https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir/blob/v1.9/CHANGELOG.md” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>see the CHANGELOG</a>.
