the conda-forge blog

We do a lot of things but only blog about some of them.

Here are some recent selections.

  • PyPy builds on conda-forge - Isuru Fernando, 2020-03-10

    conda-forge now supports PyPy3.6 as the python interpreter in a conda environment

  • Google Summer of Code 2020 improved automatic maintenance of conda-forge - Filipe Pires Alvarenga Fernandes, 2020-02-04

    The conda-forge “autotick” bot is a crucial part of conda-forge’s infrastructure. It enables automatic maintenance of conda-forge packages by pushing version updates to the underlying software and enabling large migrations of packages from one dependency to another (e.g., Python 3.7 to Python 3.8). As conda-forg grows in size, with over 9,000 packages to date, automatic maintenance of the conda-forge ecosystem will become even more important.

  • By the power of Grayskull… I have the Conda recipe! - Marcelo Duarte Trevisani, 2020-02-04

    The main goal of the Skeletonr is to conquer Grayskull.

  • Automatically Deployed ABI Migrations - C.J. Wright, 2019-12-06

    Handling application binary interface (ABI) migrations has always been a hassle for Conda-Forge. Maintaining ABI consistency helps enable the “just use conda-forge” experience for many of our users, making certain that numpy’s blas is the same as scipy’s. As libraries update their code, the new versions may be ABI incompatible, as function signatures and other symbols may have changed, leading to the dreaded SegmentationFault and other errors.
