Rust 1.14 release candidate testing


The Rust 1.14 release is Thursday, and a build is available for testing:

rustup update stable-2016-12-18

Please give it a shot. Note that this build contains a regression in the way cargo is linked on MSVC. It seems to require the MSVC 2015 redistributable to run. @alexcrichton is working on a fix and we’re hoping to do one more stable build before the release.


Psst. Rust 1.14!


OK, the rebuild of cargo went fine and the new candidate is

rustup update stable-2016-12-21


The previous build of 1.14 remains in the archives at stable-2016-12-18 for now. The only difference is the build of cargo is from a slightly different commit and cargo is linked incorrectly on MSVC. I probably should go back and delete it, but don’t want to try anything risky right now.
