Rocket's 2nd v0.5 Release Candidate#
0.5.0-rc.2, a release candidate for Rocket v0.5, is now available.
This release builds on the previous release candidate and brings further features, improvements, and fixes to Rocket. As before, this is an opportunity to discover issues with Rocket v0.5 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. Please see the new migration guide for complete details on how to upgrade from Rocket v0.4. For changes since Rocket v0.5.0-rc.1, please see the CHANGELOG.
Barring any major issues, of which none are expected, the general release of Rocket v0.5 is planned for late May 2022, when we'll post a full news article covering the biggest features and changes in Rocket v0.5. Until then, the CHANGELOG contains every feature addition, change, and improvement since v0.5.0-rc.1 and 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 soon for the general release!
