Microsoft has released an updated version of its CBL-Mariner 2.0 in-house Linux distribution that includes various security patches, new packages being added to the OS, and a variety of other updates.

CBL-Mariner 2.0.20230721 is this new Microsoft Linux release and includes new packages like python-resolvelib, OpenCSD 1.4, and also now adds Clippy in the Rust package. But, no, if you're thinking of Clippy as from the Microsoft Office days some two decades ago as the virtual assistant... It's not that Clippy. The Clippy being added to CBL-Mariner is a linter tool. There is this Rust-written Clippy to catch common mistakes in Rust code.
