Rust 1.1 was released today as stable while Rust 1.2 has entered beta.

The stable release of Rust 1.1 brings much faster compile times (Rust 1.1 stable is a 32% improvement over Rust 1.0 in boot-strapping), improved error messages, new std::fs APIs, musl libc support, and other improvements.

Rust 1.2 Beta meanwhile shows benchmark compilations are already a 30% improvement over Rust 1.1 stable. Rust 1.2 is also packing Cargo performance improvements, restoring support for parallel code generation, the first support for Microsoft Visual C, and other functionality.

Rust 1.2 is expected to be released as stable in six weeks time, at which point Rust 1.3 beta will come about.

More details on the Rust 1.1 stable / Rust 1.2 beta debut can be found via the blog.
