March releases are here! Both conda 23.3.1 and conda-build 3.24.0 are now available on both main and conda-forge:
To update conda run:
conda install -n base conda=23.3.1
To update conda-build run:
conda install -n base conda-build=3.24.0
Both conda and conda-build have dropped Python 3.7 support and efforts are underway to add Python 3.11 support for the May release. Conda and conda-build continue to deprecate and remove old, unused, and outdated code (e.g. conda-build drops
conda <4.13 logic).
Conda adds improved error messages for environment creation via
conda env create, introduces new configuration parameters, adds 64-bit RISC-V architecture compatibility, enhances code coverage, and adds experimental support for faster
repodata.json parsing via incremental fetching.
Conda-build addresses a Git LFS failure, reduces false-positives when detecting Perl modules in
conda skeleton cpan, and starts to address a
subdir issue with testing downstream packages.
Checkout conda’s changelogs for 23.3.0 and 23.3.1 and conda-build’s changelog for 3.24.0 for a complete list of improvements.
