At long last, we can announce the final release of Julia 0.5.0! See the 
release notes at for more 
details, and expect a blog post with some highlights within the next few 
days. Binaries are available from the usual place 
<>, and please report all issues to either 
the issue tracker <> or email the 
julia-users list. Don't CC julia-news, which is intended to be low-volume, 
if you reply to this message.

Many thanks to all the contributors, package authors, users and reporters 
of issues who helped us get here. We'll be releasing regular monthly bugfix 
backports from the 0.5.x line, while major feature work is ongoing on 
master for 0.6-dev. Enjoy!

We haven't made the change just yet, but to package authors: please be 
aware that `release` on Travis CI for `language: julia` will change meaning 
to 0.5 shortly. So if you want to continue supporting Julia 0.4 in your 
package, please update your .travis.yml file to have an "- 0.4" entry under 
`julia:` versions. When you want to drop support for Julia 0.4, update your 
REQUIRE file to list `julia 0.5` as a lower bound, and the next time you 
tag the package be sure to increment the minor or major version number via 
`PkgDev.tag(pkgname, :minor)`.
