The Rust Core team recently announced the official release of Rust 1.0. Rust is a new programming language aiming to make it easier to build reliable, efficient systems. Rust combines low-level control over performance with high-level convenience and safety guarantees Highlights The vast majority of the standard library is now #[stable]. It is no longer possible to use unstable features with a stable build of the compiler. Many popular crates on crates.
Steve Klabnik recently announced the release of Rust 1.0.0.alpha.2. Rust is a systems programming language pursuing the trifecta: safe, fast, and concurrent. This is a second alpha release, rather than a first beta release. The beta release will be six weeks from today, with the final coming six weeks after that. According to Steve Klabnik, they have managed to land almost all of the features previously expected for this cycle. The big headline here is that all major API revisions are finished: path and IO reform have landed.
