    Nice read! Rust has pushed, and will continue to push, the limits of practical, bare metal, memory safe languages. And it's interesting to think about what's next, maybe eventually there will be some form of practical theorem proving "for the masses". Lean 4 looks great and has potential, but it's still mostly a language for mathematicians. There has been some research on AI constructed proofs, which could be the best of both worlds because then the type checker can verify that the AI generated code/proof is indeed correct. Tools like Kani are also a step forward in program correctness.

    > those applications need the proof for correctness so that more dangerous code---say, what would need `unsafe` in Rust---can be safely added

    There are actually already tools built for this very purpose in Rust (see Kani [1] for instance).

    Formal verification has a serious scaling problem, so forming programs in such a way that there are a few performance-critical areas that use unsafe routines seems like the best route. I feel like Rust leans into this paradigm with `unsafe` blocks.

    Change default solver to CaDiCaL by @celinval in https://github.com/model-checking/kani/pull/2557 By default, Kani will now run CBMC with CaDiCaL, since this solver has outperformed Minisat in most of our benchmarks. User's should still be able to select Minisat (or a different solver) either by using #[solver] harness attribute, or by passing --solver= command line option.
