Announcing Rust 1.44.0

June 4, 2020 · The Rust Core Team

The Rust team has published a new version of Rust, 1.44.0. Rust is a programming language that is empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

This is a shorter blog post than usual: in acknowledgement that taking a stand against the police brutality currently happening in the US and the world at large is more important than sharing tech knowledge, we decided to significantly scale back the amount of promotion we're doing for this release.

The Rust Core Team believes that tech is and always will be political, and we encourage everyone take the time today to learn about racial inequality and support the Black Lives Matter movement.

What's in 1.44.0 stable

Rust 1.44 is a small release, with cargo tree integrated in Cargo itself and support for async/await in no_std contexts as its highlights. You can learn more about all the changes in this release by reading the release notes.
