Rust is blazingly fast and memory-efficient: with no runtime or garbage collector, it can power performance-critical services, run on embedded devices, and easily integrate with other languages.

Rust’s rich type system and ownership model guarantee memory-safety and thread-safety — and enable you to eliminate many classes of bugs at compile-time.

It has great documentation, a friendly compiler with useful error messages, and top-notch tooling — an integrated package manager and build tool, smart multi-editor support with auto-completion and type inspections, an auto-formatter, and more.

In 2018, the community decided to improve the programming experience for a few distinct domains (see the 2018 roadmap). For these, you can find many high-quality crates and some awesome guides on how to get started.

Command Line
Whip up a CLI tool quickly with Rust’s robust ecosystem. It helps you maintain your app with confidence and distribute it with ease.

WebAssembly
Use Rust to supercharge your JavaScript, one module at a time. Publish to npm, bundled with webpack, and you’re off to the races.

Networking
Predictable performance. Tiny resource footprint. Rock-solid reliability. Rust is great for network services.

Embedded
Targeting low-resource devices? Need low-level control without giving up high-level conveniences? It has you covered.

Hundreds of companies around the world are using Rust for Windows in production today for fast, low-resource, cross-platform solutions. The software you know and love, like Firefox, Dropbox, and Cloudflare, uses the app. From startups to large corporations, from embedded devices to scalable web services, Rust is a great fit.

Cargo:
- Apply GitHub fast path even for partial hashes
- Do not add home bin path to PATH if it's already there
- Take priority into account within the pending queue. This slightly optimizes job scheduling by Cargo, with typically small improvements on larger crate graph builds.

Compatibility Notes:
- std::layout::Layout size must not overflow isize::MAX when rounded up to align. This also changes the safety conditions on Layout::from_size_align_unchecked.
- PollFn now only implements Unpin if the closure is Unpin. This is a possible breaking change if users were relying on the blanket unpin implementation. See discussion on the PR for details of why this change was made.
- Drop ExactSizeIterator impl from std::char::EscapeAscii This is a backwards-incompatible change to the standard library's surface area, but is unlikely to affect real world usage.

- Reenable disabled early syntax gates as future-incompatibility lints
- Update the minimum external LLVM to 13
- Don't duplicate file descriptors into stdio fds
- Sunset RLS
- Deny usage of #![cfg_attr(..., crate_type = ...)] to set the crate type This strengthens the forward compatibility lint deprecated_cfg_attr_crate_type_name to deny.
- llvm-has-rust-patches allows setting the build system to treat the LLVM as having Rust-specific patches This option may need to be set for distributions that are building Rust with a patched LLVM via llvm-config, not the built-in LLVM.
- Combining three or more languages (e.g. Objective C, C++ and Rust) into one binary may hit linker limitations when using lld. For more information, see issue 102754.

Internal Changes:
- These changes do not affect any public interfaces of Rust, but they represent significant improvements to the performance or internals of rustc and related tools.
- Add x.sh and x.ps1 shell scripts
- compiletest: use target cfg instead of hard-coded tables
- Use object instead of LLVM for reading bitcode from rlibs
- Enable MIR inlining for optimized compilations This provides a 3-10% improvement in compiletimes for real world crates. See perf results.

Rust 1.61.0
- Custom exit codes from main
- More capabilities for const fn
- Static handles for locked stdio
- Stabilized APIs
- Other changes


Rust 1.58.1
- The non_send_fields_in_send_ty Clippy lint was discovered to have too many false positives and has been moved to the experimental lints group (called "nursery")
- The useless_format Clippy lint has been updated to handle captured identifiers in format strings, introduced in Rust 1.58.0
- A regression in Rustfmt preventing generated files from being formatted when passed through the standard input has been fixed
- An incorrect error message displayed by rustc in some cases has been fixed


Rust 1.58.0
Language:
- Format strings can now capture arguments simply by writing {ident} in the string. This works in all macros accepting format strings. Support for this in panic! (panic!("{ident}")) requires the 2021 edition; panic invocations in previous editions that appear to be trying to use this will result in a warning lint about not having the intended effect.
- const T pointers can now be dereferenced in const contexts
- The rules for when a generic struct implements Unsize have been relaxed

Compiler:
- Add LLVM CFI support to the Rust compiler
- Stabilize -Z strip as -C strip. Note that while release builds already don't add debug symbols for the code you compile, the compiled standard library that ships with Rust includes debug symbols, so you may want to use the strip option to remove these symbols to produce smaller release binaries. Note that this release only includes support in rustc, not directly in cargo.
- Add support for LLVM coverage mapping format versions 5 and 6
- Emit LLVM optimization remarks when enabled with -Cremark
- Update the minimum external LLVM to 12
- Add x86_64-unknown-none at Tier 3*
- Build musl dist artifacts with debuginfo enabled. When building release binaries using musl, you may want to use the newly stabilized strip option to remove these debug symbols, reducing the size of your binaries.
- Don't abort compilation after giving a lint error
- Error messages point at the source of trait bound obligations in more places
- Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support.

Libraries:
- All remaining functions in the standard library have #[must_use] annotations where appropriate, producing a warning when ignoring their return value. This helps catch mistakes such as expecting a function to mutate a value in place rather than return a new value.
- Paths are automatically canonicalized on Windows for operations that support it
- Re-enable debug checks for copy and copy_nonoverlapping
- Implement RefUnwindSafe for Rc
- Make RSplit<T, P>: Clone not require T: Clone
- Implement Termination for Result<Infallible, E>. This allows writing fn main() -> Result<Infallible, ErrorType>, for a program whose successful exits never involve returning from main (for instance, a program that calls exit, or that uses exec to run another program).

Stabilized APIs:
- Metadata::is_symlink
- Path::is_symlink
- {integer}::saturating_div
- Option::unwrap_unchecked
- Result::unwrap_unchecked
- Result::unwrap_err_unchecked

- Duration::checked_div
- MaybeUninit::as_ptr
- MaybeUninit::as_mut_ptr
- MaybeUninit::assume_init
- MaybeUninit::assume_init_ref

Cargo:
- Add --message-format for install command
- Warn when alias shadows external subcommand

Rustdoc:
- Show all Deref implementations recursively in rustdoc
- Use computed visibility in rustdoc

Compatibility Notes:
- Try all stable method candidates first before trying unstable ones. This change ensures that adding new nightly-only methods to the Rust standard library will not break code invoking methods of the same name from traits outside the standard library.
- Windows: std::process::Command will no longer search the current directory for executables.
- All proc-macro backward-compatibility lints are now deny-by-default.
- proc_macro: Append .0 to unsuffixed float if it would otherwise become int token
- Refactor weak symbols in std::sys::unix. This optimizes accesses to glibc functions, by avoiding the use of dlopen. This does not increase the minimum expected version of glibc. However, software distributions that use symbol versions to detect library dependencies, and which take weak symbols into account in that analysis, may detect rust binaries as requiring newer versions of glibc.
- rustdoc now rejects some unexpected semicolons in doctests

Internal Changes:
- These changes provide no direct user facing benefits, but represent significant improvements to the internals and overall performance of rustc and related tools.
- Implement coherence checks for negative trait impls
- Add rustc lint, warning when iterating over hashmaps
- Optimize live point computation
- Enable verification for 1/32nd of queries loaded from disk
- Implement version of normalize_erasing_regions that allows for normalization failure

Language:
- Macro attributes may follow #[derive] and will see the original (pre-cfg) input

- Allow panicking in constant evaluation

Compiler:
- Create more accurate debuginfo for vtables
- Add armv6k-nintendo-3ds at Tier 3*
- Add armv7-unknown-linux-uclibceabihf at Tier 3*
- Add m68k-unknown-linux-gnu at Tier 3*
- Add SOLID targets at Tier 3*: aarch64-kmc-solid_asp3, armv7a-kmc-solid_asp3-eabi, armv7a-kmc-solid_asp3-eabihf
- Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support

Libraries:
- Avoid allocations and copying in Vec::leak
- Add #[repr(i8)] to Ordering
- Optimize File::read_to_end and read_to_string
- Update to Unicode 14.0
- Many more functions are marked #[must_use], producing a warning when ignoring their return value. This helps catch mistakes such as expecting a function to mutate a value in place rather than return a new value.

Stabilised APIs:
- [T; N]::as_mut_slice
- [T; N]::as_slice

Internal changes:
- These changes provide no direct user facing benefits, but represent significant improvements to the internals and overall performance of rustc and related tools
- Added an experimental backend for codegen with libgccjit


Rust 1.55.0
Language:
- You can now write open "from" range patterns (X..), which will start at X and will end at the maximum value of the integer
- You can now explicitly import the prelude of different editions through std::prelude (e.g. use std::prelude::rust_2021::*;).

Compiler:
- Added tier 3* support for powerpc64le-unknown-freebsd
- * Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support
- Libraries
- Updated std's float parsing to use the Eisel-Lemire algorithm. These improvements should in general provide faster string parsing of floats, no longer reject certain valid floating point values, and reduce the produced code size for non-stripped artifacts.
- string::Drain now implements AsRef and AsRef<[u8]>.

Stabilised APIs:
- Bound::cloned
- Drain::as_str
- IntoInnerError::into_error
- IntoInnerError::into_parts
- MaybeUninit::assume_init_mut
- MaybeUninit::assume_init_ref
- MaybeUninit::write

- x86_64::_bittestandset64

Cargo:
- Cargo will now deduplicate compiler diagnostics to the terminal when invoking rustc in parallel such as when using cargo test
- The package definition in cargo metadata now includes the "default_run" field from the manifest
- Added cargo d as an alias for cargo doc
- Added {lib} as formatting option for cargo tree to print the "lib_name" of packages

Rustdoc:
- Added "Go to item on exact match" search option
- The "Implementors" section on traits no longer shows redundant method definitions
- Trait implementations are toggled open by default. This should make the implementations more searchable by tools like CTRL+F in your browser.
- Intra-doc links should now correctly resolve associated items (e.g. methods) through type aliases
- Traits which are marked with #[doc(hidden)] will no longer appear in the "Trait Implementations" section


Rust 1.54.0
Language:
- You can now use macros for values in built-in attribute macros. While a seemingly minor addition on its own, this enables a lot of powerful functionality when combined correctly. Most notably you can now include external documentation in your crate by writing the following.
- #![doc = include_str!("README.md")]

You can also use this to include auto-generated modules:
- #[path = concat!(env!("OUT_DIR"), "/generated.rs")] mod generated
- You can now cast between unsized slice types (and types which contain unsized slices) in const fn
- You can now use multiple generic lifetimes with impl Trait where the lifetimes don't explicitly outlive another. In code this means that you can now have impl Trait<'a, 'b> where as before you could only have impl Trait<'a, 'b> where 'b: 'a.

Compiler:
- Rustc will now search for custom JSON targets in /lib/rustlib//target.json where / is the "sysroot" directory. You can find your sysroot directory by running rustc --print sysroot.
- Added wasm as a target_family for WebAssembly platforms
- You can now use #[target_feature] on safe functions when targeting WebAssembly platforms
- Improved debugger output for enums on Windows MSVC platforms
- Added tier 3* support for bpfel-unknown-none and bpfeb-unknown-none
- Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support

Libraries:
- Panic::panic_any will now #[track_caller]
- Added OutOfMemory as a variant of io::ErrorKind
- Proc_macro::Literal now implements FromStr
- The implementations of vendor intrinsics in core::arch have been significantly refactored. The main user-visible changes are a 50% reduction in the size of libcore.rlib and stricter validation of constant operands passed to intrinsics. The latter is technically a breaking change, but allows Rust to more closely match the C vendor intrinsics API.
- Stabilized APIs:
- BTreeMap::into_keys
- BTreeMap::into_values
- HashMap::into_keys
- HashMap::into_values
- Arch::wasm32
- VecDeque::binary_search
- VecDeque::binary_search_by
- VecDeque::binary_search_by_key
- VecDeque::partition_point

Cargo:
- Added the --prune option to cargo-tree to remove a package from the dependency graph
- Added the --depth option to cargo-tree to print only to a certain depth in the tree
- Added the no-proc-macro value to cargo-tree --edges to hide procedural macro dependencies
- A new environment variable named CARGO_TARGET_TMPDIR is available. This variable points to a directory that integration tests and benches can use as a "scratchpad" for testing filesystem operations.

Compatibility Notes:
- Mixing Option and Result via ? is no longer permitted in closures for inferred types
- Previously unsound code is no longer permitted where different constructors in branches could require different lifetimes
- As previously mentioned the std::arch instrinsics now uses stricter const checking than before and may reject some previously accepted code
- I128 multiplication on Cortex M0+ platforms currently unconditionally causes overflow when compiled with codegen-units = 1


Rust 1.53.0
Language:
- You can now use unicode for identifiers. This allows multilingual identifiers but still doesn't allow glyphs that are not considered characters such as ◆ or 🦀. More specifically you can now use any identifier that matches the UAX #31 "Unicode Identifier and Pattern Syntax" standard. This is the same standard as languages like Python, however Rust uses NFC normalization which may be different from other languages.
- You can now specify "or patterns" inside pattern matches. Previously you could only use | (OR) on complete patterns. E.g.
- Added the :pat_param macro_rules! matcher. This matcher has the same semantics as the :pat matcher. This is to allow :pat to change semantics to being a pattern fragment in a future edition.

Compiler:
- Updated the minimum external LLVM version to LLVM 10
- Added Tier 3* support for the wasm64-unknown-unknown target
- Improved debuginfo for closures and async functions on Windows MSVC

Libraries:
- Abort messages will now forward to android_set_abort_message on Android platforms when available
- slice::IterMut<'_, T> now implements AsRef<[T]>
- Arrays of any length now implement IntoIterator. Currently calling .into_iter() as a method on an array will return impl Iterator<Item=&T>, but this may change in a future edition to change Item to T. Calling IntoIterator::into_iter directly on arrays will provide impl Iterator<Item=T> as expected.
- leading_zeros, and trailing_zeros are now available on all NonZero integer types.
- {f32, f64}::from_str now parse and print special values (NaN, -0) according to IEEE RFC 754.
- You can now index into slices using (Bound, Bound)
- Add the BITS associated constant to all numeric types


Rust 1.52.1
- Change log not available for this version


Rust 1.52.0
Language:
- Added the unsafe_op_in_unsafe_fn lint, which checks whether the unsafe code in an unsafe fn is wrapped in a unsafe block. This lint is allowed by default, and may become a warning or hard error in a future edition.
- You can now cast mutable references to arrays to a pointer of the same type as the element

Compiler:
- Upgraded the default LLVM to LLVM 12

Added tier 3* support for the following targets:
- s390x-unknown-linux-musl
- riscv32gc-unknown-linux-musl & riscv64gc-unknown-linux-musl
- powerpc-unknown-openbsd
- Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support

Libraries:
- OsString now implements Extend and FromIterator
- cmp::Reverse now has #[repr(transparent)] representation
- Arc now implements error::Error
- All integer division and remainder operations are now const

Stabilised APIs:
- Arguments::as_str
- char::MAX
- char::REPLACEMENT_CHARACTER
- char::UNICODE_VERSION
- char::decode_utf16
- char::from_digit
- char::from_u32_unchecked
- char::from_u32
- slice::partition_point
- str::rsplit_once
- str::split_once
- The following previously stable APIs are now const.:
- char::len_utf8
- char::len_utf16
- char::to_ascii_uppercase
- char::to_ascii_lowercase
- char::eq_ignore_ascii_case
- u8::to_ascii_uppercase
- u8::to_ascii_lowercase
- u8::eq_ignore_ascii_case

Rustdoc:
- Rustdoc lints are now treated as a tool lint, meaning that lints are now prefixed with rustdoc:: (e.g. #[warn(rustdoc::non_autolinks)]). Using the old style is still allowed, and will become a warning in a future release.
- Rustdoc now supports argument files
- Rustdoc now generates smart punctuation for documentation
- You can now use "task lists" in Rustdoc Markdown

Misc:
- You can now pass multiple filters to tests. E.g. cargo test -- foo bar will run all tests that match foo and bar
- Rustup now distributes PDB symbols for the std library on Windows, allowing you to see std symbols when debugging

Internal Only:
- These changes provide no direct user facing benefits, but represent significant improvements to the internals and overall performance of rustc and related tools
- Check the result cache before the DepGraph when ensuring queries
- Try fast_reject::simplify_type in coherence before doing full check
- Only store a LocalDefId in some HIR nodes
- Store HIR attributes in a side table

Compatibility Notes:
- Cargo build scripts are now forbidden from setting RUSTC_BOOTSTRAP
- Removed support for the x86_64-rumprun-netbsd target
- Deprecated the x86_64-sun-solaris target in favor of x86_64-pc-solaris
- Rustdoc now only accepts ,, , and t as delimiters for specifying languages in code blocks
- Rustc now catches more cases of pub_use_of_private_extern_crate
- Changes in how proc macros handle whitespace may lead to panics when used with older proc-macro-hack versions. A cargo update should be sufficient to fix this in all cases.


Rust 1.51.0
Language:
- You can now parameterize items such as functions, traits, and structs by constant values in addition to by types and lifetimes. Also known as "const generics" E.g. you can now write the following. Note: Only values of primitive integers, bool, or char types are currently permitted.

Compiler:
- Added the -Csplit-debuginfo codegen option for macOS platforms. This option controls whether debug information is split across multiple files or packed into a single file. Note This option is unstable on other platforms.
- Added tier 3* support for aarch64_be-unknown-linux-gnu, aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu_ilp32, and aarch64_be-unknown-linux-gnu_ilp32 targets
- Added tier 3 support for i386-unknown-linux-gnu and i486-unknown-linux-gnu targets
- The target-cpu=native option will now detect individual features of CPUs
- Refer to Rust's platform support page for more information on Rust's tiered platform support

- slice::fill_with
- slice::split_inclusive_mut
- slice::split_inclusive
- slice::strip_prefix
- slice::strip_suffix
- str::split_inclusive
- sync::OnceState
- task::Wake

Cargo:
- Added the split-debuginfo profile option to control the -Csplit-debuginfo codegen option
- Added the resolver field to Cargo.toml to enable the new feature resolver and CLI option behavior. Version 2 of the feature resolver will try to avoid unifying features of dependencies where that unification could be unwanted. Such as using the same dependency with a std feature in a build scripts and proc-macros, while using the no-std feature in the final binary. See the Cargo book documentation for more information on the feature.

Rustdoc:
- Rustdoc will now include documentation for methods available from nested Deref traits
- You can now provide a --default-theme flag which sets the default theme to use for documentation

Various improvements to intra-doc links:
- You can link to non-path primitives such as slice
- You can link to associated items
- You can now include generic parameters when linking to items, like Vec

Misc:
- You can now pass --include-ignored to tests (e.g. with cargo test -- --include-ignored) to include testing tests marked #[ignore]

- The minimum version of glibc for the following platforms has been bumped to version 2.31 for the distributed artifacts
- armv5te-unknown-linux-gnueabi
- sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu
- thumbv7neon-unknown-linux-gnueabihf
- armv7-unknown-linux-gnueabi
- x86_64-unknown-linux-gnux32

Internal Only:
- Consistently avoid cons
