    The most exciting part for me is that this will be the first Rocket release that supports stable Rust (and doesn’t require nightly/unstable features)!

    1. 5

      Excited for this! So much stuff coming in this 0.5 release.

        I haven’t been following Rocket lately? What are the big features/changes that folks are looking forward to?

          Sounds like the big ones are support for async, and running on the stable compiler.

        2. 2

          I’ve been wanting to explore writing web services in Rust, but I don’t really want to do it on nightly (mostly because I want to potentially present it to higher-ups as a viable option for development at my employer, and I feel that using the “stable” branch will be more appealing to them). This is definitely a big plus for me, and I’m excited to try it out.
