The latest in the world of Rocket.

Rocket v0.5 Release Candidate

Rocket 0.5.0-rc.1, a release candidate for Rocket v0.5, is now available.

This release actualizes over two years of development, bringing Rocket to Rust stable and async to Rocket. Every facet, from core request handling to error messages, has been subjected to Rocket's exacting standards.

This release candidate is an opportunity to discover issues with Rocket v0.5 and its documentation before a general release. We encourage all users to migrate their applications to the release candidate. All documentation, including the guide and API docs, has been updated in full for v0.5. Please report issues to the GitHub issue tracker. Questions or concerns should instead be raised on Rocket's newly available GitHub discussions.

The Rocket v0.5 general release is planned for Friday, June 18th. A complete migration guide and news article will accompany the general release. Until then, the CHANGELOG contains every feature addition, change, and improvement since v0.4.

We hope you enjoy Rocket v0.5 as much as we enjoyed creating it. We look forward to your feedback!
