Rust 1.12 has been released as the newest version of this popular programming language with a focus on "fast, reliable, productive: pick three."

Rust developers describe todays release as "might be one of the most significant Rust releases since 1.0." Rust 1.12 presents overhauled error messages from the rustc code compiler, makes use of the new MIR code generation (Mid-level IR, not to be confused with Ubuntu's Mir), minor documentation improvements, support for building against LLVM 3.9, and various other changes. There has also been work in the scope of library stabilizations for Rust and new Cargo features.
