Announcing Rust 1.44.0

This release is somewhat muted due to current events, but we get "cargo tree integrated in Cargo itself and support for async / await in no_std contexts as its highlights."

PSA: Most of the newly-stabilized APIs are backported to Rust 1.31! All it takes is cargo add standback and use standback::prelude::*. For anything that needs to be imported, use standback::blah instead of use std::blah. will suffice.

All newly stabilized APIs will be aliased on the new compilers and shimmed on old ones. As such, there's no compatibility issues.
