General Development "Today Mozilla and the Rust community are releasing version 0.1 of the Rust compiler and associated tools. Rust is a strongly-typed systems programming language with a focus on memory safety and concurrency. This is the initial release of the compiler after a multi-year development cycle focusing on self-hosting, implementation of major features, and solidifying the syntax. Version 0.1 should be considered an alpha release, suitable for early adopters and language enthusiasts. It's nifty, but it will still eat your laundry."

Last week clay announced version .1 as well. In my opinion it's a much better systems language. rust has to compete with 'd' and 'go' and all other garbage collected languages.

From what I saw, rust isn't garbage collected.

Garbage collection is optional there.
