Rust Programming Language 1.15 Highlights

  • Rust 1.15 sees an extremely eagerly-awaited feature land on stable: custom derive
  • The build system for Rust has been re-written in Rust, using Cargo. It is now the default. This process has been long, but has finally borne fruit
  • Rust has gained Tier 3 support for i686-unknown-openbsd, MSP430, and ARMv5TE
  • The slice::sort algorithm has been rewritten, and is much, much, much faster. It is a hybrid merge sort, drawing influences from Timsort. Previously it was a straightforward merge sort
  • Cargo will now emit a warning if you have a file named build.rs at the top level of a package, but don’t have a build = “build.rs” annotation. This is in anticipation of inferring that build.rs at the top level is always a build script, but is a warnin
