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."

Mingw revenge

While their flagship products support only the cygwin+cl build system on windows this time they use pc-mingw32.

It seems that their flagship products are intentionally crippled against clang/gcc on windows.

Please re-consider your position. Clang/GCC are strong on windows and there is no excuse to avoid them

More importantly the mingw cross-compile from linux is out of the question and building on ReactOS is also impossible.
