I’m incredibly excited about Rust, conceptually, but I’ve waited to actually dig in because I’ve seen a fairly consistent stream of Tweets that seem to indicate each point release completely breaks whatever it is they’ve been working on–of course this is entirely expected pre-1.0. However, for someone like me who would like to play around with Rust, when is a good time to start? Should I hold out for 1.0?
If you’re just playing, now is a great time to start. But don’t put any stakes on it. You can make OSS projects, but keep in mind there’s still a bit of work version to version to keep them up to date.
This feels like a big package of changes. Does anyone know when (or if) 1.0 is set to be released?
Is 1.0 even next? My guess would be that they release a 0.10.0 next.
I assumed 0.10.0 is next, but it won’t be considered usable until 1.0, which is why I’m interested
From a hacker news thread: 1.0 is due out in 2014, but they’re planning for at least 0.10 and 0.11 releases
