Mozilla developers working on the interesting Rust programming language have updated it to version 0.9 on Thursday as they continue adding new features and functionality to this language that one day could be powering Firefox and other applications.

The latest additions found in Rust 0.9 are extensive improvements to the run-time and I/O subsystem, support for static linking and link-time optimizations, and reduced the variety of closures in Rust. Rust also starts finalizing the changes to how pointers are treated in Rust.
