Written by Michael Larabel in Mozilla on 3 July 2013 at 09:31 PM EDT. 1 Comment
Version 0.7 of Mozilla's Rust programming language is now available.

Per the release announcement, "This release had a markedly different focus from previous releases, with fewer language changes and many improvements to the standard library. The highlights this time include a rewrite of the borrow checker that makes working with borrowed pointers significantly easier and a comprehensive new iterator module (std::iterator) that will eventually replace the previous closure-based iterators."

More details on Rust 0.7 can be found via the release notes. Rust is a compiled programming language designed for safe, concurrent, and practical programming.
