Hello and welcome to another issue of This Week in Rust! Rust is a systems language pursuing the trifecta: safety, concurrency, and speed. This is a weekly summary of its progress and community. Want something mentioned? Send me an email! Want to get involved? We love contributions.

This Week in Rust is openly developed on GitHub. If you find any errors or omissions in this week's issue, please submit a PR.

In summary

It's been a few weeks since the last TWiR. Things have happened.

RustCamp 2015 was announced, though many details are still to be determined. Please submit talk proposals.

Several I/O stabilization patches have been nominated for backporting to 1.1, filling out the somewhat meager story we had for 1.0. With things moving somewhat slowly since the last release, I/O improvements will probably be the most interesting part of the next release.

If you haven't recently, give the playpen another look as it's received several new features lately, including a new design from Chris Morgan, the ability to output Intel-flavor asm, automatically post GitHub gists, and run #[test] functions.

What's cooking on master?

346 pull requests were merged in the last three weeks.

Quote of the Week

"Dude, you can't just tell people it's the secret plan; then it won't be a secret any more! You keep this up, and you're going to get your Secret Rust Club card revoked! Then you won't be able to get on the awesome Secret Rust Zeppelin. Don't screw this up, man!"

Quxxy, from /r/rust.

"The 1st rule of Secret Rust Club is: you don't talk about Secret Rust Club.

The 2nd rule of Secret Rust Club is: error: 1st rule does not live long enough.

error: aborting due to previous error"

JakDrako, from the same thread.
