How long does usually take to update Docker Official Image?

There’s no official docker image. The non-namespaced elixir one is also community provided.

I was referring Docker Hub “Official Image”.

That’s still not managed by anyone of the core team afaik: https://github.com/c0b/docker-elixir

They’re “official” docker images, but not maintained by the core team. For more details, checkout Moving github repo of the official docker image to elixir-lang org

Official in the Docker world but not the Elixir world :slight_smile:

There is only one last major feature planned for upcoming Elixir versions, which is the addition of mix release to Elixir itself

^ 1.9?

Your turn. :slight_smile:

^ 2.0?

I’ve found a piece of code that does not compile on 1.8.0 but does compile on 1.7.4 I didn’t pinpoint exactly the problem, but will try to do it today, or at least this week if time permits. It has to do with a rather longish with else, and Erlang’s meck library (I used Elixir Mock and MecksUnit, but error’s stays the same. I’ll try to make a reproducible example.

I can’t post error message now (not at correct machine, just browsing forums with my morning coffee). What wanted to ask is: should I make a post here at forums, or just straight to github issues?


@sztosz there was an issue opened for meck which has been fixed and a new meck release has been done. Could that be it? But opening an issue sounds good, just please include a way for us to reproduce it. :slight_smile:

That was it! :slight_smile: Updating :meck made the tests pass :slight_smile:

v1.8.1 is out with some bug fixes: https://github.com/elixir-lang/elixir/releases/tag/v1.8.1


Would love to know who the maintainers are - lots of people deploying docker images from a completely anonymous github / docker hub account. “Official”, indeed!
