  • procfs

    Rust library for reading the Linux procfs filesystem

    256: we expected to have a patch in u8, whereas the max of a u8 is 255, so we needed at least a u16. (

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • rust-prometheus

    Prometheus instrumentation library for Rust applications

    [dependencies] prometheus = { git = "", rev = "ac86a264223c8d918a43e739ca3c48bb4aaedb90", features = ["process"] }

  • terraform-provider-aws

    Terraform AWS provider

    At this time, it was a headache for people using Terraform (like Qovery) who wanted to upgrade from a previous version and "Terraform AWS provider" developers. AWS understood their mistake as they recently removed 6.x and switched back to SemVer format ( And, we go again on the "Terraform AWS provider" on GitHub:
