  • wg-cargo-std-aware

    Repo for working on "std aware cargo"

  • actix-telepathy

    Cluster extension for actix

    Well, one recent issue I came across recently is the lack of support for clusters. There are crates for parallelism on a local machine, but the crates wrapping MPI or coming up with a native solution are basically not maintained anymore. I've only found actix telepathy, which is not a complete solution tho, being an extension of Actix.

  • ponyc

    Pony is an open-source, actor-model, capabilities-secure, high performance programming language

    As others have mentioned here, inserting mutexen implicitly would probably lead to large numbers of difficult to debug deadlocks. I suspect that serious attempts to design this would result in something close to Pony Lang, but with Traits and Sum types. Heck, Pony is still pre-1.0, so it wouldn't be impossible to add those to Pony either.

  • getargs

    A truly zero-cost argument parser for Rust

    If it's perfectly fine then it shouldn't be terribly difficult to write it in a way that the borrow checker is happy with. The problem is reformulating your problem such that it's easy to either annotate the lifetimes in that way or have the compiler infer them for you. And it's made more difficult if your libraries have incorrectly elided lifetimes.

  • Async trait methods: on roadmap; RFC 3185; expected to be delivered soonish

    Keep an eye on the discussion on tracking issue #84277. That's where they track progress toward stabilizing the Try and FromResidual traits that back the ? operator.
