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)!
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.
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.
