By its very nature, this forum’s discussion tends to be focused on people having problems, asking questions, or wanting to advertise some ongoing work. I thought it would be nice to also have a thread for sharing random bursts of gratitude for a change.
To get it started, two recent examples for me would be…
- The new search in the std docs. It looks better, it finds more methods (at the price of some false-positives), and it can search by method input and output. I love it.
- Rust 1.24. This was one helluva release. The parallel and incremental compilation optimizations alone make my daily development iterations much more pleasant, and it has tons of good “smaller” improvements (catching panics at FFI boundaries, faster string searches, atomic::spin_loop_hint, new const fns…).
