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."

deca is still more vapor than something like clay. there's papers and work on BNF, etc for deca, but no known implementation. the clay guys are the other side of the coin. I asked a few time (on irc) if they had any BNF, etc and was explicitly ignored. There's something to be said for an inbetween approach (move forward with experimentation, back fill BNF to check for stupid mistakes, etc).

okay not fully vapor but not functional either. Read the recent updates. I'm sure its in production now just like rust and clay are (not).
