    The “Captured identifiers in format strings” is very nice.

    1. 5

      While that is pretty nice, I’m excited about:

      • File::options
      • Metadata::is_symlink
      • Path::is_symlink

      Being stabilized. They were some of the main reasons some of my projects used nightly.

        If, like me, you’re ever wondering what’s coming in the next release, you can check the relnotes tag: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues?q=issue+label%3Arelnotes

        Spoiler: 1.59 will be stabilization of inline assembly!

        1. 3

          What I really like is that you can also pass the formatting parameters like the field width without the awkward width=width.

          I just changed format!("{:>width$}", s, width=count_len) into format!("{s:>count_len$}")
