Rust 1.15 prerelease testing


#1

Rust 1.15 is released on Thursday. Builds are available now in the archives for testing.

URL is https://static.rust-lang.org/dist/2017-01-31/index.html

Test rustup with

rustup update stable-2017-01-31

@cuviper This build does not include fixes to rust-buildbot you made for powerpc and s390x. I only discovered last night we had not deployed those fixes, and felt it was too risky to touch. I’m sorry about that, but will deploy the buildbot changes for the 1.16 beta today.


#2

That’s OK, I agree it’s too risky to perturb the build environment days before a release. I appreciate that it’s heading for beta, and if I need it sooner I can rebuild prior releases myself using the new toolchains.


#3

Rustup tells me:

info: syncing channel updates for 'nightly-x86_64-pc-windows-gnu’ info: checking for self-updates

nightly-x86_64-pc-windows-gnu unchanged - rustc 1.16.0-nightly (df8debf6d 2017-01-25)


#4

@leonardo Hmm, seems to work for me:

stable-2017-01-31-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu installed - rustc 1.15.0 (10893a9a3 2017-01-19)


#5

I think you can’t compare the two cases…


#6

@leonardo Ah my mistake, I thought you were talking about updating the toolchain, not rustup itself.


#7

I was trying to update the toolchain. But it’s a different one, on a different system.


#8

@leonardo Your output looks ok to me. Stable won’t update yet on its own without identifying it in the archives explicitly with stable-2017-01-31.


#9

I am trying to update the nightly. Is it normal for the nightly-x86_64-pc-windows-gnu to not be updated since 2017-01-25? I am still learning how the updates are…


#10

x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu is also stuck on 2017-01-25, so I’m guessing they’re all behind. Sometimes nightly doesn’t actually work every night…


#11

Unfortunately nightlies are down. I am investigating.
