async-std v1.7.0 today. This is a fairly small patch; the main feature added is a new

Additionally we've updated our dependencies, which is where much of the improvements to the runtime happen these days.
For a future release we're considering running another beta chain of releases. We're looking to fix issues with our "unstable" channel implementation by re-exporting
async-channel and stabilizing it under a new
async_std::channel submodule. This matches what we expect the
std::sync split may turn into (if channels are kept). But because our "unstable" channel has been around for so long, this will require a grace period to test and upgrade before stabilization.
Anyway, we hope you enjoy the latest version of
