I’ve noticed that the 128-bit floating and integer types are currently available in nightly Rust.
I’d like to use these and have no qualms per se about using nightly Rust.
So my question is more about
why: Why exactly are these types unstable atm? I’ve checked the tracking issue but there isn’t too much recent information on it there and it’s difficult to figure out which of those comments are out of date (can’t check everyone’s private forks, after all).
What issues specifically are holding the
f128 types back from stability?
I’m asking because depending on the answers I might go ahead (or not) and use them in a project for work.
