Crate of the Week
This week's crate is roogle, a type-based Rust API search engine inspired by Haskell's Hoogle.
Thanks to Hirochika Matsumoto for the suggestion!

Rust Compiler Performance Triage
The only significant regressions were 1. two PRs that slowed down doc generation, and 2. some slowdown from the new lints to flag occurrences of Unicode bidirectional control characters. The doc generation regression is being investigated.
Triage done by @pnkfelix. Revision range: 3c8f00..6384dc
6 Regressions, 3 Improvements, 1 Mixed; 4 of them in rollups 39 comparisons made in total
Changes to Rust follow the Rust RFC (request for comments) process. These are the RFCs that were approved for implementation this week:

Quote of the Week
I always tell myself that code quickly written just to compile looks like Order 66 executed on Christmas day
Clones and unwrapping as far as the eye can see.
