    > It defaulted to the fully backwards compatible version (vs 2021)

    Cargo defaults to the 2021 edition, and has ever since it was stabilized:

    Either you accidentally installed a version of cargo from before the 2021 edition was stabilized, or you ran "cargo new --edition ", or you started by cloning an out of date project of some sort, in which case it's not really an issue with "defaults".

    Cargo, which is the out-of-the-box tool for running tests, installing packages/dependencies, and more, has conventions for building libraries versus binaries.

    Between workspace inheritance and tools like cargo-release, this has become trivial for me. If people don't want to use a third-party tool, we can always be working on improving cargo further, like publishing more than one crate at a time or merging support for modifying versions.

    On other OSs than Linux, the situation is different, e.g. there was a outage for windows because OCSP servers weren't responding.

    Rust has a lot of features such as functional programming paradigm and zero cost abstractions (!). As to speed and safety, it doesn't have GC, garbage collection, so it runs with much smaller memory and cleanly. As to productivity, it has the nice package manager called cargo and also a tool chain called rustup.

    Macro expansion is slow, but only noticeably in the specific situation of a) third-party proc macros, b) a debug build, and c) a few thousand invocations of said proc macros. This is because debug builds compile proc macros in debug mode too, so while the macro itself compiles quickly (because it's a debug build), it ends up running slowly (because it's a debug build).

    I know this from observing this on a mostly auto-generated crate that had a couple of thousand types with `#[derive(serde::)]` on each. [1]

    This doesn't affect most users, because first-party macros like `#[derive(Debug)]` etc are not slow because they're part of rustc and are thus optimized regardless of the profile, and even with third-party macros it is unlikely that they have thousands of invocations. Even if it is* a problem, users can opt in to compiling just the proc macros in release mode. [2]
