Rocket's 2nd v0.4 Release Candidate

After a successful and productive initial v0.4 release candidate, I am happy to announce that the second release candidate for Rocket v0.4 is now available.

This release candidate fixes issues identified during the first release candidate, introduces further features, and leverages upstream rustc contributions for improved diagnostics and stability. As before, this is an opportunity to discover issues with Rocket v0.4 and its documentation before its general release. We encourage all users to migrate their applications to the second release candidate and report any issues to the GitHub issue tracker. To update to v0.4.0, manually update rocket in your Cargo.toml file:

rocket = "0.4.0"

Barring any major issues, of which none are expected, the general release of Rocket v0.4 is planned for Wednesday, December 5th, when we'll post a full news article covering the biggest features and changes in Rocket v0.4. Until then, the CHANGELOG contains every feature addition, change, and improvement since v0.4.0-rc.1 and v0.3, as well as information on migrating your applications to v0.4. All documentation, including the guide and API docs, has been updated in full for the second release candidate.

We're excited for your feedback, and we look forward to seeing you again on Wednesday, December 5th for the general release!
