Good morning Rustlers! Yesterday the libs team decided that the
libc crate will be promoted from the
rust-lang-nursery organization to the
rust-lang organization, and it now lives there!
The libc crate’s current design is explained in RFC 1291, which is where it was also approved for inclusion into
rust-lang. At the time we moved libc from 0.1 to 0.2 to get some experience, and we feel that it’s now ready for 1.0, the threshold for moving to
Upgrading libc to 1.0 will likely be a widespread breaking change for now due to tools lacking on the Cargo front, so we’re not going to pull that trigger just yet (libc will remain at 0.2 for now). Once the tooling is in place, however, we plan on moving the libc crate to 1.0!
We’ve gotten a ton of awesome PRs leading up to here, and please feel free to continue adding bindings to libc!
