Multirust, the tool for managing Rust installations on OS X and Linux, has been updated to version 0.0.3. If you spend a lot of time working in Rust on a Unixy system, consider letting multirust deal with the regular toolchain updates.
Installation is a one-liner:
curl -sf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brson/multirust/master/blastoff.sh | sh
Upgraders will be asked to run
multirust upgrade-data. It should be painless.
This release is based on rustup.sh. It includes a new variation of the
update command: invoking
multirust update with no further arguments will update all three release channels and then print out the current revisions.
The other new feature is the
multirust run <toolchain> <command> [args] will configure the environment so future toolchain invocations use a specific toolchain. For example,
multirust run beta bash will start a shell in which future invocations of
rustc use the beta toolchain, regardless of the directory override or default toolchains.
Finally, update notifications have been removed because they were annoying.
- Built off of
rustup.shin the installation.
multirust update, without specifying a toolchain, will update all three of ‘stable’, 'beta’
multirust run <toolchain>, which configures the environment of a subprocess
so that multirust will use a specific toolchain.
- Removed update notifications. Just use
multirust update, which will be a no-op if there’s
no new revision to install.
- multirust now can validate hashes with either sha256sum or shasum.
