Congratulations on reaching the big 1.0! :confetti_ball: :tada::confetti_ball::tada::confetti_ball:

Congrats on the release!

I couldn’t help but notice that the regex! macro is no longer present.
Is there a place where I can read up on why it was removed?


#4

Didn’t the regex!() macro use the old (nightly-only) syntax extensions method for generating the regex at compile time? If so, they probably deleted it to allow the addition of a regex!() using procedural macros when they stabilise.


#5

Yes, it was removed last year. See: https://github.com/rust-lang/regex/blob/master/HACKING.md#the-regex-macro


#6

Awesome! Thanks a lot for the awesome work with text in Rust :heavy_heart_exclamation: I regularly use source code of the regex and related libraries in the local algorithms class to demonstrate how text book algorithms look like, when implemented for production usage!
