Covering a bunch of the shiny new things that just landed! dbg!, unified paths, more places you can use Self, and a bunch of const fn stabilizations—plus some neat community highlights!

Covering 1.32’s stabilization of the dbg! macro, unified paths, more places you can use Self, and a bunch of const fn stabilizations—plus some neat community highlights!

This is the last news episode for the next 6 weeks, happily: inbound are a teaching episode and a bonus episode and hopefully a very interesting interview!

    This appears to be a podcast. It appears to have an rss feed which allows it to be consumed using a podcast client: https://newrustacean.com/feed.xml

    Why make it so hard / impossible to find any reference to the feed when browsing the website?

      That’s an interesting question from a discoverability point of view! I already subscribe to New Rustacean (I think I stumbled across Chris Krycho’s work via Twitter), so I was curious to see how easy it’d be to find it on the website.

      Like you, I couldn’t find an obvious link from the show notes to the whole podcast feed, but when I found the homepage (https://newrustacean.com/), I saw lots of ways to get to the podcast, including the RSS feed.

      If I remember right, the website is built using Rust’s standard documentation tooling. A neat hack, but a little twisted. I don’t know how easy it is to change the base templates to include the appropriate link(s). However,tThe lack of discoverability on the show notes might be useful feedback for him to receive.

      Some searching later

      Ah yes, here’s the repo: https://github.com/chriskrycho/newrustacean.com. You could raise an issue, or contact him directly via another mechanism?

        when I found the homepage (https://newrustacean.com/)

        I failed to find the homepage. I clicked on the big logo in the top left corner and assumed that that had taken me to the homepage, but in fact it took me to https://newrustacean.com/show_notes/index.html.

        You could raise an issue, or contact him directly via another mechanism?

        He appears to have authored this thread, so I assume he will see these comments…

          Oh! Certainly not an intended outcome—just a side effect of assuming (incorrectly!) that most people would end up seeing the home page. I’d not realized—literally until this post!—that the docs don’t have a way to link you back to the home page. If you have a GH account, I’d love it if you opened an issue, and I’ll figure out a way to get the RSS feed link into the show notes version of the page.

          Things like this are definitely the downside to a choice I made really early on because I thought it would be helpful for a bunch of things about the show (as indeed it has).
