Rust language

Rust programming language alpha 1.0 released

Rust Core Team today announced availability of alpha version of Rust language 1.0. Language and its core libraries are now feature complete for version 1.0, which means there won’t be any breaking changes to currently implemented features.

Rust is a general purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Mozilla research. It is designed to be a “safe, concurrent, practical language”, supporting pure-functional, concurrent-actor, imperative-procedural, and object-oriented styles.


A detailed list of changes and features can be found at the release announcement blog. Due to fast development and unavailability of a stable release, all the language features/syntax keeps changing making it difficult to document. Few officially recognised documentation for the language are Rust book project Led by Steve Klabnik and Rust by example Initiated by Jorge Aparicio.
