Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)


The Deref is back for 2022 with a bumper crop of new Clojure articles and libraries! We plan to keep the Deref going in 2022 and it won’t be long before we are running the annual Clojure Survey again, stay tuned here for details.

From the core

The core team took a nice break over the holidays but we’re back and pushing hard on the next Clojure 1.11 alpha and on to an expected release. We’ll also be looking ahead to what’s after 1.11 and where our focus will turn.

Fogus has mostly been focused on sheparding the last bits of 1.11 jira issues through with patches and screening and his weekly passes on the Cognitect aws API. This week I’ve continued to push on CLJ-2677, which has to do with avoiding reflection in the inlined implementations of the new clojure.math functions, which spun out several side investigations. I think that’s likely collapsing back to a preferred solution focused on coercions and hopefully we can wrap up all of the outstanding math issues next week for the next alpha. Additionally, I spent some time in the late days of 2021 fixing some concurrency bugs in tools.deps and released a new Clojure CLI with those fixes this week - definitely recommended to upgrade!
