The Rust team is happy to announce the latest version of Rust, 1.11. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

As always, you caninstall Rust 1.11 from the appropriate page on our website, and check out the detailed release notes for 1.11 on GitHub. 1109 patches were landed in this release.

What’s in 1.11 stable

Much of the work that went into 1.11 was with regards to compiler internals that are not yet stable. We’re excited about features like MIR becoming the default and the beginnings of incremental compilation , and the 1.11 release has laid the groundwork.

As for user-facing changes,last release, we talked about the new cdylib crate type.

The existing dylib dynamic library format will now be used solely for writing a dynamic library to be used within a Rust project, while cdylibs will be used when compiling Rust code as a dynamic library to be embedded in another language. With the 1.10 release, cdylibs are supported by the compiler, but not yet in Cargo. This format was defined in RFC 1510.

Well, in Rust 1.11, support for cydlibs has landed in Cargo ! By adding this to your Cargo.toml :

crate-type = ["cdylib"]

You’ll get one built.

In the standard library, the default hashing function was changed , from SipHash 2-4 to SipHash 1-3. We have been thinking about this for a long time, as far back as the original decision to go with 2-4 :

we proposed SipHash-2-4 as a (strong) PRF/MAC, and so far no attack whatsoever has been found, although many competent people tried to break it. However, fewer rounds may be sufficient and I would be very surprised if SipHash-1-3 introduced weaknesses for hash tables.
