      You didn't read the release notes linked.

      "From its very first release, Julia used the popular Mersenne Twister algorithm as its default random number generator. We knew we might want to re-evaluate that choice at some point, but it didn't seem particularly urgent until Chet Hega pointed out that by changing algorithms we could not only get a significant speed-up, but also make random number streams reproducible in multi-threaded programs."
