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.

    I've seen an awful lot of C++ code over the years, and the more I see of it, the more I realise that 99.9% is written by complete morons.

    OTOH Rust will attract programmers who are far, far, above average, and will be studiously careful to use the language only in the right way...

    Even the designers of Rust couldn't implement the Rust compiler using Rust without introducing a shitload of bugs.
