PROGRAMMING --
Just announced by the Rust team is the release of Rust 1.0 Alpha, a huge milestone for the Mozilla-backed programming language.

Rust 1.0 Alpha affirms the point that the language is now feature-complete for v1.0. Rust 1.0 Alpha also marks feature-completeness for the Rust core libraries. However, usability improvements and other non-breakable changes will still come prior to officially declaring Rust 1.0.

Among the new features of Rust 1.0 Alpha are dynamically-sized types, multi-dispatch traits, associated types, where clauses, unboxed closures, macros, integer type changes, and opt-in built-in traits. Rust 1.0 Alpha also presents improvements to the Rust standard library, documentation updates, and other improvements.

More details on Rust 1.0 Alpha can be found via the release announcement at Rust-Lang.org. Rust 1.0 is expected to be officially released later in 2015.
