Upcoming Crystal 1.9 Release

The next Crystal 1.9 release is scheduled for July 11.

As usual, this is precluded by a two-week freeze period starting next week on June 27. We’ll be using this time to consolidate the release and only bug fixes will be merged.

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.
We appreciate any report of regressions caused by our latest nightly builds.

Instructions for installing nightly builds are available at Install Nightly Builds - The Crystal Programming Language

This release is not expected to bring any big impact changes, but many small or medium sized improvements in many areas, and particularly a lot of progress on the Windows story.
