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


The big highlight today is the release of Clojure 1.12.0-alpha2 which focuses on the new add-lib functions. This has been work in progress on top of tools.deps for several years, and it’s gone through many different approaches before we ended here. We are interested in your feedback on this and I expect there will be some further updates before we reach the final 1.12 release. Also check the full list of changes in alpha2.

We are also working on some additional Java interop features and bug fixes which are still targeted for 1.12.
