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."

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

Garbage collection is optional there.

Rust does do include garbage collection. it's just that reference counting is "preferred" (clay only supplies explicit reference count semantics).
