./lang/rust-bin, Safe, concurrent, practical language (official binaries)

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.48.0, Package name: rust-bin-1.48.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Rust is a systems programming language focused on three goals: safety,
speed, and concurrency. It maintains these goals without having a
garbage collector, making it a useful language for a number of use cases
other languages aren't good at: embedding in other languages, programs
with specific space and time requirements, and writing low-level code,
like device drivers and operating systems.

It improves on current languages targeting this space by having a number
of compile-time safety checks that produce no runtime overhead, while
eliminating all data races. Rust also aims to achieve "zero-cost
abstractions" even though some of these abstractions feel like those of
a high-level language. Even then, Rust still allows precise control
like a low-level language would.

This package installs a released binary.

rust-bin: Update to 1.47.0

This release contains no new language features, though it does add one
long-awaited standard library feature. It is mostly quality of life
improvements, library stabilizations and const-ifications, and toolchain

Version 1.46.0 (2020-08-27)

- [`if`, `match`, and `loop` expressions can now be used in const functions.][72437]
- [Additionally you are now also able to coerce and cast to slices (`&[T]`) in
  const functions.][73862]
- [The `#[track_caller]` attribute can now be added to functions to use the
  function's caller's location information for panic messages.][72445]
- [Recursively indexing into tuples no longer needs parentheses.][71322] E.g.
  `x.0.0` over `(x.0).0`.
- [`mem::transmute` can now be used in static and constants.][72920] **Note**
  You currently can't use `mem::transmute` in constant functions.

- [You can now use the `cdylib` target on Apple iOS and tvOS platforms.][73516]
- [Enabled static "Position Independent Executables" by default
  for `x86_64-unknown-linux-musl`.][70740]

- [`mem::forget` is now a `const fn`.][73887]
- [`String` now implements `From<char>`.][73466]
- [The `leading_ones`, and `trailing_ones` methods have been stabilised for all
  integer types.][73032]
- [`vec::IntoIter<T>` now implements `AsRef<[T]>`.][72583]
- [All non-zero integer types (`NonZeroU8`) now implement `TryFrom` for their
  zero-able equivalent (e.g. `TryFrom<u8>`).][72717]
- [`&[T]` and `&mut [T]` now implement \ 
- [`(String, u16)` now implements `ToSocketAddrs`.][73007]
- [`vec::Drain<'_, T>` now implements `AsRef<[T]>`.][72584]

Stabilized APIs
- [`Option::zip`]
- [`vec::Drain::as_slice`]

Added a number of new environment variables that are now available when
compiling your crate.

- [`CARGO_BIN_NAME` and `CARGO_CRATE_NAME`][cargo/8270] Providing the name of
  the specific binary being compiled and the name of the crate.
- [`CARGO_PKG_LICENSE`][cargo/8325] The license from the manifest of the package.
- [`CARGO_PKG_LICENSE_FILE`][cargo/8387] The path to the license file.

Compatibility Notes
- [The target configuration option `abi_blacklist` has been renamed
  to `unsupported_abis`.][74150] The old name will still continue to work.
- [Rustc will now warn if you cast a C-like enum that implements `Drop`.][72331]
  This was previously accepted but will become a hard error in a future release.
- [Rustc will fail to compile if you have a struct with
  `#[repr(i128)]` or `#[repr(u128)]`.][74109] This representation is currently only
  allowed on `enum`s.
- [Tokens passed to `macro_rules!` are now always captured.][73293] This helps
  ensure that spans have the correct information, and may cause breakage if you
  were relying on receiving spans with dummy information.
- [The InnoSetup installer for Windows is no longer available.][72569] This was
  a legacy installer that was replaced by a MSI installer a few years ago but
  was still being built.
- [`{f32, f64}::asinh` now returns the correct values for negative numbers.][72486]
- [Rustc will no longer accept overlapping trait implementations that only
  differ in how the lifetime was bound.][72493]
- [Rustc now correctly relates the lifetime of an existential associated
  type.][71896] This fixes some edge cases where `rustc` would erroneously allow
  you to pass a shorter lifetime than expected.
- [Rustc now dynamically links to `libz` (also called `zlib`) on Linux.][74420]
  The library will need to be installed for `rustc` to work, even though we
  expect it to be already available on most systems.
- [Tests annotated with `#[should_panic]` are broken on ARMv7 while running
  under QEMU.][74820]
- [Pretty printing of some tokens in procedural macros changed.][75453] The
  exact output returned by rustc's pretty printing is an unstable
  implementation detail: we recommend any macro relying on it to switch to a
  more robust parsing system.

urst-bin: Correct sense of condition

Log message:
Rename rust-bin's PKGNAME to rust-bin. Add rust.mk for rust packages.

This allows rust-bin and rust to coexist in bulk builds (for testing, etc),
but the packages still may not be installed at the same time.

rust.mk as a solution for picking the correct rust variant was suggested
by gdt@. It is intended to be included directly by packages that do not
use cargo.mk, and indirectly by packages that do use cargo.mk.

rust.mk provides one user-settable variable:

	as before, whether to bootstrap rust from source or use
	official binaries. may be "src" or "bin"

And two package-settable variables:

	the minimum version of Rust required by the package.
	defaults to "1.20.0"

	whether Rust is a runtime dependency, may be "yes" or "no"
