The current 2.5 snapshot is producing an error in the nextflow joint build. It seems due to a false positive variable uninitialised check:

[03:16:26][:compileGroovy] Note: /var/teamcity/buildagent-jdk8/work/fcd731bd66de729d/src/main/groovy/nextflow/sort/ uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
[03:16:26][:compileGroovy] Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.

See more here. The source is here. Let me know if you want to open an issue for this.

I am planning to prepare a 2.5.0-beta-3 release towards the end of this week and 2.4.14 not long after. Now's a good time to let us know if there is something critical you need for those releases.

I am expecting 2.5.0-beta-3 to be the last beta for 2.5.0 and while there are a couple of things we are still planning to finish for 2.5.0, I am expecting the next release to kick off the RC release(s), so a final release shouldn't be too far away!

Thanks, Paul.
