Like before, we're seeking some beta testers for Rustup 1.24.2 -- the main reason for this release is to deal with a nasty problem we think is down to system allocators on some systems interacting badly with the new streamed file installation code. We've made some changes which hopefully will prevent this problem. As such we're looking for people who were still struggling with memory issues with 1.24.1 to give it a go.
You may have seen this manifest as a failure to install, because it couldn't allocate a 16777216 byte block of memory or similar. This seems to be more prevalent in Windows systems and often in CI situations.
If you set
RUSTUP_UPDATE_ROOT in your environment to point at
https://dev-static.rust-lang.org/rustup then you can install/use 1.24.2 which will help us to understand if this fix is right.
Obviously we'll also appreciate any problem reports people find on other platforms, but we particularly want someone who was reliably encountering problems before to have a go with 1.24.2 for us, since we weren't seeing it ourselves.
If you need help arranging your CI to do this, let me know and I'll see what I can do to help you work things out. I'm not a travis or actions expert, but I can try.
