Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)


In Clojure-related business news, Dividend Finance is being acquired by Fifth Third. Also, there was a round of funding for Green Labs. Both are users of Clojure, congrats to all!

From the core

Last week we did a roundup of jiras in Clojure 1.11.0-alpha4 and I was surprised that so many people actually watched it, so thanks for the feedback and interest. We’ll try to do a bit more of that kind of thing in the future. Since the alpha4 release we’ve been working several things that came out of the release and a few of those changes have started to hit master this week:

  • CLJ-2685 - fix to the generative tests for iteration which were occasionally failing

  • CLJ-2689 - fix to the clojure.math tests to make them less strict so they pass on M1 builds (java.lang.Math methods mostly allow differences of ~1 ulp "unit in last place")

  • CLJ-2690 - updated the docstring and some arg names for iteration

No new release yet but I expect the next one will be 1.11.0-beta1. Big thanks to everyone who tried alpha4 and gave feedback.
