Crystal 0.35.1 has been released!

We’ve written a blog post summarizing the changes in this release:

The full changelog is here:

All the usual installation methods still apply:

Docker images and 64 bits Linux packages are available as usual

The brew formula PR is in


Noice! Not sure it is the place to talk about it, I find there are too many similar (flavors) linux distributions in

Ubuntu based: Kubuntu, KDE Neon, Linux Mint, Elementary OS (and there is also Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Edubuntu… this won’t end :sweat_smile: )

I didn’t compare side by side, but Debian instructions looks also very similar.

That will be ok if installations were different, but that’s not the case.

If people are installing packages through the CLI, they are advanced enough to know what is their distribution, if it is apt based, rpm or others.

I suggest:

  • from source
  • tar.gz
  • macOS
  • Windows
  • Linux
  • FreeBSD

Then inside Linux, have:

  • snap
  • apt (Debian and derivatives like Ubuntu)
  • AUR
  • rpm (RHEL based)
  • rpm (OpenSuse)
  • Alpine
