The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.29.2. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.
If you have a previous version of Rust installed via rustup, getting Rust 1.29.2 is as easy as:
$ rustup update stable
What's in 1.29.2 stable
This patch release introduces a workaround to a miscompilation bug introduced in Rust 1.29.0. We haven't found the root cause of the bug yet, but it showed up after a LLVM version upgrade, and it's caused by an optimization. We disabled that optimization until the root cause is fixed.
This release also includes the
rls-preview rustup component for Windows GNU
users, which wasn't included in the 1.29.0 release due to a build failure. We
also added safeguards in the release infrastructure to prevent stable and beta
releases with missing components for Tier 1 platform in the future.
