    In contrast to Xlib, XCB had explicit error handling from the beginning. It never calls exit() automatically.

    Care to elaborate? I know I'm not everybody, but I am a programmer and so far I like what I have seen about Rust. It's not the easiest to read, but that may be because my background is mostly Java.

    Tooling is great (though decent IDEs aren't free), dependency management is top-notch and the compiler actually helps you write the code. Lambda expressions, proper pattern matching, async/await, it's all there. With some additional goodies still to come.

    Any idea on rust's current status with GCC?

    That XIO error handler is waaaaaay overdue. I remember that headache back around 1986; someone suggested setjmp/longjmp for recovery (I was playing around with migrating clients from one display to another and wanted to recover if opening the new display failed).

    Joking aside, the bugs this release fixes are exactly the type of bugs Rust prevents by design. There is a reason people love Rust, but I think nobody expects everything to be rewritten now. Though I have a hunch every developer wishes everything was rewritten in Rust while troubleshooting multithreaded or memory allocation issues

    No, I don't write jokes in english, only Rust.

    I am glad to see that X11 library has received attention. I look at the announcement for 1.7.0 and there are a lot of older bug fixes being addressed. If the contributors happen to see this post, thank you!
