MOZILLA --
Rust, the general purpose, safe, and concurrent programming language developed by Mozilla Research, is starting to assemble their vision of Rust 1.0.

A new post on the Rust Programming Language Blog is laying out the path to Rust 1.0. The developers hope to move to Rust 1.0 soon with a beta coming out hopefully by the end of the year and the official release to follow. This Rust 1.0 milestone is to signify the Rust design "feeling right" and a promise to maintain backwards compatibility for future 1.x releases.

The Rust programming language has picked up tons of features over past months while sticking to its focus of providing safety and convenience of modern programming languages. Features still to be addressed before Rust 1.0 includes support for dynamically sized types, unboxed closures, associated types, where clauses, multi-dispatch traits, destructors, and green threading.

Those currently using Rust or hoping to begin programming in Rust can learn more about the 1.0 release plans via this blog post.
