After many years of waiting, version 1.0 of the Rust programming language has finally been released. The Rust home page describes Rust as "a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents nearly all segfaults, and guarantees thread safety."

Thanks to the hard work of noted Rust core team members Yehuda Katz and Steve Klabnik, Rust is now poised to become a serious competitor to established systems programming languages like C and C++.

The announcement has brought much jubilation to the followers of Rust, who have been eagerly awaiting this milestone release for so long. With only 1,940 open issues and over 11,500 issues already closed, Rust is finally ready for users to build fantastically reliable software systems using it.

    A name that evokes decay instead of something positive?

    Hah, I can do better. I hereby introduce my new programming language: Bitrot.

    And Bitrot is really better than Rust, because it only has two bugs:

    1. There is no specification
    2. There is no implementation

    But then, it is absolutely impossible to write a buggy program in Bitrot. Take that, Rust!
