    I never had an issue with WSL1 until some bizarre bug that cropped up seemingly out of nowhere in which I would blue-screen during some Rust compilation. I didn't have the issue after maybe four or six months of using Rust in WSL1 until suddenly I did. Upgrading to WSL2 fixed the problem.

    Publishing Rust crates does require a workaround[0] in WSL2 if it's from a Windows directory. That's annoying but pretty infrequent (for me) and not a difficult workaround.

    Except for those two issues, I've not had any problems in either WSL version - certainly nothing that would give me pause to using either one.

    Documentation for binary crates includes private items since 1.41.0:
  • What's the best way to run a private cargo registry? | 2021-01-18
    The downside is that due to Cargo aggressively pulling in all dependencies – including “optional” and “dev” ones – during build, you occasionally have to patch Cargo.toml files to avoid having to pollute your registry with crates like winapi.
  • How understanding sofware versions can help you get unstuck | 2021-01-15
    There is an issue where this is being tracked here and more technical detail about why this actually happens here.
  • 🦀 Publishing My First Rust Crate | 2021-01-11
    It is currently not possible to specify that a certain version of a crate implementing some cargo-* subcommand must be installed when working on my crate. It's quite limiting, especially coming from JS where you can explicitly declare a cli package as a dependency of your own package and use it in build scripts, etc.
  • "cargo run" recompiles my code even when no changes have been made? | 2021-01-10
    The best info is at Does your have rerun-if-changed derectives? If one points to a file that does not exist that can lead to always rebuilding.
