Clojure 1.10 has officially released.

Major Updates

  • improved error reporting (Clojure errors at the REPL are categorized, errors carry additional info, etc.)
  • updated Java compatibility (focused on Java 8 & 11)

Thoughts on this release and the direction of Clojure?

Anything that improves error reporting must be good as I've found that a significant pain the few times I've written Clojure.

 

I always wanted to learn closure, can you point me a good material to learn it?

 
 

Well, I'm admittedly not a Clojure dev. Not actually a dev at all... YET. ๐Ÿ˜…

BUT, I did notice that Chris James (in the comment โ˜๏ธ or maybe ๐Ÿ‘‡ depending on how the hearts fall) recently posted this - dev.to/quii/tis-the-season-to-writ... which seemed quite appropriate.

Anyway, best of luck to you on your hunt for good Clojure resources. Pop them in here if you find more!
