    Hopefully the removal of jemalloc results in the Hello World application being smaller.

      I wonder how ralloc project is doing.

        Rust is starting get a lot of deprecated stuff in it. This is all stuff that's not included unless your code uses it, right?

          That is Rust's modus operandi anyway... so yeah you only pay for what you use.

            1. They moved jemalloc to a crate. Instead of using it by default (and including it everywhere), now you have to choose to use it.
            2. This is an incubating language. If it didn't deprecate (and eventually remove) what's not working, it'd end up like Java that carries AWT, Swing, Vector and whatnot into 2019.

              Languages comes and goes.... C remains.

                Who believe in trade-offs, I'm doing a Rust crate and I'm disappointed by some of its core functionality (no trait upcasting, shitty solutions to parent-child relationship), but it has a lot of really cool stuff too.

                  There's no silver bullet in Rust. There's just memory safety in exchange of having to deal with ownership.
                  Seeing how C/C++ programs fail to protect memory at the drop of a hat, I'd say trying to look at things for a fresh perspective would have been in order.

                    Haha nice try. You can bring a horse to water but you can't get it to drink. Rust isn't the problem, you are and I hope you'll stay away from it.
