Elixir v1.7.0-rc.0 Released

Development team ask community to try out new release 
17 July 2018   706

Elixir team rolled out zero release candidate for version 1.7.0.

Hi everyone,

We have just released v1.7.0-rc.0.

Please give it a try! You can either compile the v1.7 branch from source OR use the precompiled files, as described in our install page 11.

Note that you will need {:ex_doc, "~> 0.19-rc"}if you want to generate docs using the release candidate.

Happy coding!


Creator, Elixir

Currently Elixir supports two metadata keys: :deprecated and :since. Other keys will be added in the future. 

To access the new documentation, developers should use Code.fetch_docs/1. The old documentation format is no longer available and the old Code.get_docs/1 function will return nil accordingly.

Tools like IEx and ExDoc have been updated to leverage the new format and show relevant metadata to users
