[Release] UNIC 0.5.0


#1

We’re happy to announce a new UNIC release! Version 0.5.0 of all components are now available: https://crates.io/search?q=unic

This is the first release on the new 6-week release schedule, which is what we have picked for the pre-1.0 development, allowing us to focus on expanding components and APIs, as well as revisiting the dev/build systems and using latest Rust features. You should expecting the next release, 0.6.0, about two weeks after rustc-1.20.0 release.

As always, looking forward to your comments and feedback. :slight_smile:
