Rust language: Its developers announce the new version 1.50.0

A few days ago, the team of developers of the Rust language has announced a remake of the same, the version 1.50.0. In such a way, to continue strengthening the relatively young and outstanding programming language which is allowing many build more reliable and efficient software.

Young, because, hardly his first stable version was published on the day May 15, 2015 by the Mozilla Foundation. And outstanding, since, from the beginning it has fulfilled its main goal, that is, to be a practical programming language, multiparadigm, object-oriented, concurrent, powerful, safe and fast, among many other benefits.

"Programming (Software Development), today, is a highly demanded professional field, since it is a fundamental tool that shapes the world in which we live. Therefore, their learning constitutes not only an excellent opportunity in the workplace, but an opportunity to improve the formal logical reasoning of each individual. Therefore, 5 open Software Development Projects to learn / strengthen on GNU / Linux recommended are: Go, Node.js, PHP, Python and Ruby."

What is the Rust Language?

Citing an earlier post about the Rust language, we can briefly describe it as follows:

"Rust is a compiled, general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language that is being developed by Mozilla and supported by LLVM. This language has been designed to be "a safe, concurrent and practical language" and above all to be a replacement for the C and C ++ languages. Rust is an open source programming language that supports pure functional, procedural, imperative, and object-oriented programming."

"This programming language works extremely fast, avoids segfaults, and guarantees thread safety. It supports zero-cost abstractions, motion semantics, guaranteed memory security, race-free data threads, trait-based generics, and pattern matching. It also supports type inference, minimal execution time, as well as efficient C bindings."

What's new in version 1.50.0

Among the novelties of this new version 1.50.0 we can briefly cite the following:

  • About Language: You can now use constant values ​​for «x» in array expressions «[x; N]». This has been technically possible since 1.38.0, as it unintentionally stabilized. And the mappings to union fields «ManuallyDrop<T>» are now considered safe.
  • About the Compiler: Added level 3 support for the target «armv5te-unknown-linux-uclibceabi»; and for the goal «aarch64-apple-ios-macabi». While for the goal «x86_64-unknown-freebsd» it is now built with the full toolset. Lastly, support for all cloudabi lenses has been removed.
  • About Libraries: «proc_macro::Punct» now implement «PartialEq<char>». While, «ops::{Index, IndexMut}» is now implemented for fixed-size arrays of any length. Finally, on Unix Platforms, the type «std::fs::File» now has a "niche" of «-1». This value cannot be a valid file descriptor, and now it means that «Option<File>» occupies the same amount of space as «File».
