The Tech Preview Of Servo/Browser.html Is Imminent!
Servo has made much progress this year as a next-generation browser layout engine written in Rust and featuring cool features like its GPU back-end while they've long been planning to ship a technical preview release in June along with a TP of their Browser.html front-end. They also have still been planning to ship at least one Servo component inside Gecko/Firefox this calendar year.
With June quickly coming to an end I thought they may not make this milestone, but it looks like they are still planning to ship this very early release. In today's This Week In Serv 69 they mention, "This upcoming week is the final week of June! So, expect the first tech preview of Servo and browser.html to be announced on this blog shortly..."
In addition to confirming the tech preview is coming, this week's blog post also mentioned they made around a ~25% speed-up in page load times as a result of the latest work.
