It’s been a long time coming, but the next edition of this programming language is getting ready for a new release: Rust 2018 is in the works. While we don’t have a set release date, we do have a whole lot of improvements for this beloved programming language. Rustaceans, rejoice!
Rust had its one year anniversary in May this year but even though they celebrated a handful of achievements such as 11,894 commits by 702 contributors added to the core repository, 88 RFCs merged, 18 compiler targets introduced and nine releases shipped, they are ready to put the suggestions they received in the State of Rust survey into practice.
The Rust team has introduced the latest version of the systems programming language -1.7, which continues the course of 1.6. What this release focuses on is library features -roughly 40 library functions and methods are currently stable in 1.7.
Co-creator of the D programming language Andrei Alexandrescu has taken it upon himself to assess the languages most likely to challenge the position that C currently holds in software development. He’s also encouraged reps from Go and Rust to give their honest opinions, too.
