Mozilla: Rust’s 2018 Roadmap, This Week In Servo 107, TenFourFox FPR6 available
The developers behind the Rust programming language have put out a road-map for the year as well as details on the forthcoming “Rust 2018” Edition that succeeds the 1.x release series.
Each year the Rust community comes together to set out a roadmap. This year, in addition to the survey, we put out a call for blog posts in December, which resulted in 100 blog posts written over the span of a few weeks. The end result is the recently-merged 2018 roadmap RFC.
In the last week, we merged 85 PRs in the Servo organization’s repositories.
Congratulations to waywardmonkeys for their new mandate to review and maintain the low-level harfbuzz bindings, and their work to create safe higher-level bindings!
TenFourFox Feature Parity Release 6 is now available for testing (downloads, hashes, release notes). Other than finishing the security patches and adding a couple more entries to the basic adblock, there are no other changes in this release. Assuming no issues, it will become live Monday evening Pacific time as usual.
