The impl period
This is it! The impl period has drawn to a close. We’ve come together as a community to do a truly epic amount of work in three months time.
If you were involved in the impl period, either as a WG lead or a contributor, please consider blogging about your experience. The program has been such a success in both mentoring and overall productivity that we will almost certainly want to do something similar in the future — so your feedback is very valuable, and talking about your experiences can help give others confidence that they can take on hard problems with the Rust community’s help.
- There’s now a tracking issue showing the status of most major language changes slated for the next epoch.
- A new release candidate for
- Non-lexical lifetimes: two-phase-borrows landed; PR #46862 wraps everything up into a
#![feature(nll)]and will hopefully land soon. See https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/milestone/42
- NLL support is approaching “code complete”. Once PR #46862 lands, we will have support for
#![feature(nll)]which can be used to start experimenting.
