If you were waiting for a moment to try it. It is the best time to hop in.

      What a disappointment looks like I won’t be able to play with the new version on OpenBSD due to W^X violations.

        There’s an ElmTown podcast on 0.18 where we discuss some of the interesting things that it brings

          Just curious, is there some degree of promise of few breaking changes for newer versions that makes this version a better one to dive in on than others? The debugger is pretty cool, but the 0.x has kept me from trying Elm on a bigger project than just toying around with it.

            Right now, we’re working on tooling to automate upgrading. For example, for this release, you can use elm-format with the --upgrade flag to automatically update the syntax. Together with elm-upgrade, you can automate upgrading your deps.

            0.16 -> 0.17 was a big breaking change. I foresee any other future releases will have substantial tooling for upgrades :)

              Not sure about any kind of promises.

              First of all, there were a lot of changes in 0.17, but upgrade from 0.16 was not that hard. Upgrade from 0.17 to 0.18 should be much easier and pretty straightforward, thanks to elm-format. Good news — for the next few months no major changes in Elm land. ;)
