Do you remember how a Python crypto package requiring #Rust was reported as a disaster filling landfills with abandoned computers, because Rust didn't support s360 and hppa platforms?
Here are Debian stats for these platforms:
They've logged 8 users of each these platforms. Eight.
These platforms add up to one tenth of one percent of Debian users, by most generous interpretation of these stats.
Are there projects that depend on new C versions? What was the newest minimum #C version that you've seen required?
"Actors with Tokio" by Alice Ryhl
This article is about building actors with Tokio directly [...] there are some details you should be aware of:
1. Where to put the tokio::spawn call.
2. Struct with run method vs bare function.
3. Handles to the actor.
4. Backpressure and bounded channels.
5. Graceful shutdown.
https://lib.rs/cap is an interesting crate. It had only one release ever. It probably won't have another release, but it's fine. It's done. It looks like an abandoned/junk crate, but isn't.
