The next Crystal 1.7 release is scheduled for Jan 9.
As usual, this is precluded by a two-weeks freeze period starting next week Dec 26. We’ll be using this time to consolidate the release and only bug fixes will be merged. We appreciate any report of regressions caused by our latest nightly builds.
The current HEAD of the master branch serves as a preview of the release. You can obtain pre-release builds from current nightlies or build directly from master.
Nightly builds are available from these locations:
- Linux x86_64 tarball: https://artifacts.crystal-lang.org/dist/crystal-nightly-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
- Darwin universal tarball:https://artifacts.crystal-lang.org/dist/crystal-nightly-darwin-universal.tar.gz
- Docker (

Nightlies can also be easily used in GitHub Actions with the install-crystal action.
