Rust 1.62.0

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • - Learn 300+ open source libraries for free using AI.
  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

    Generic associated types were supposed to be stabilized in 1.62 but there has been a recent backlash in the PR of what exactly to stabilize [0]. I posted it as its own separate post here [1].



  • Rustlings

    :crab: Small exercises to get you used to reading and writing Rust code!

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • documentation generator has the documentation for the standard library.

    In addition contains the documentation for all publicly available Rust code.

    The main tool used to generate these docs is very good and easy to use. As a result documentation is usually pretty good.

  • Cargo

    The Rust package manager

    For those unaware, some ask "why"

    - No need to look up the version (though some IDEs do it for you)

    - Auto-completion

    - It shows you what features the crate has and whether they are activated, making it easier to discover features you need to enable or what you can remove to improve compile times

    - Make it easier to document how to add a set of dependencies needed for a project (e.g. "Run `cargo add serde serde_json -F serde/derive`")

    - The opportunity for more QoL improvements, see

    It is impressive the amount of work it took to get this ready. I took over the effort almost a year ago and at times was working full time on it (thanks to my employer). Just my part included

    - a near rewrite of the format-preserving toml parser (toml_edit)

    - a major revamp of the UI

    - a major revamp of testing

    - a near rewrite to make it compatible with cargo's code base
