Reminder: beta is tomorrow!


#1

Nothing specific, I am just super excited.

Maybe one specific thing: there’s naturally going to be a bit of lag between ‘beta is cut!’ and ‘crates are updated.’ So we probably won’t have “magical no more breakage constantly land” for a few days after the actual release. I’m gonna try helping out, so if you want a hand, or want to know how to fix some breakage, ping me!


#2

I’d be cautious about claiming that beta won’t have breaking changes, I seem to remember we had said something similar for alpha : )


#3

I don’t remember such a thing being said for alpha… but it’s important to be exact when communicating stability, its true. The announcement post will have real, actual, non-me-being-excited wording. :wink:

Never mind, I think I just extrapolated a bit too much from http://blog.rust-lang.org/2015/01/09/Rust-1.0-alpha.html and ignored the “major” part of:

  • All 1.0 language features are now in place and we do not expect major breaking changes to them.
  • Here again [The core libraries] we do not expect major breaking changes before 1.0.
