Hello everyone. Just want to say Pants is great. I've been using it for over 3 years now on all of my Java projects! It's the best build system I know of. Thanks for all your work.

Thanks Adrian!! Trying our best to make it better too :) What Pants version are you on? We're hoping to get to v2 Java later in 2021 (or earlier if a community member spearheaded it)

I am on Pants version 1.26.0. It's working great. I can't wait to see v2 Java.

Cool. The latest v1 release is 1.30 - most the improvements between 1.26 and 1.30 were made to Python, but there's some benefit to upgrading with things like better formatting for
./pants help
and pantsd (the daemon) being much more robust for better performance. Check out https://www.pantsbuild.org/docs/upgrade-tips for upgrade tips

Okay, cool. I'll try it out and let you know.
Hey Eric, it's stuck on "Building wheel for setproctitle (setup.py)" for some reason.

Hmm, still stuck? Any output? That is a dependency used by Pants, and there's an issue building/compiling the dependency You can also try going from 1.26 to a lower number like 1.27 or 28, don't need to jump all the way to 30

So I tried 1.27 and 1.28. For some reason, they both do the same thing. That's kind of weird though because a few months ago when I tried they worked.

Random thought, are you on the latest macOS? There are issues with it and building some Python dependencies It's plausible 1.26 is broken too, only that the pip cache is helping you avoid it

Okay. I'll just use 1.26 for now and try to update to 1.28 in a few weeks.
