>       which is Rust's "0-assumption" library, suitable for embedded and
>       kernel development for example.

>       management of bit flags.
>     * A debug_assert! macro is now provided which is disabled when
>       `--cfg ndebug` is passed to the compiler.

>       to being based on methods.
>     * The Pod trait has been renamed to Copy.
>     * jemalloc has been added as the default allocator for types.

> alignment
>       and sized deallocation
>     * Connecting a TcpStream or binding a TcpListener is now based on a
>       string address and a u16 port. This allows connecting to a hostname

>     * The Reader trait now contains a core method, read_at_least(), which

>     * The TaskBuilder API has been re-worked to be a true builder, and
>       extension traits for spawning native/green tasks have been added.

>   * Tooling
>     * All breaking changes to the language or libraries now have their
>       commit message annotated with `[breaking-change]` to allow for easy
>       discovery of breaking changes.
>     * The compiler will now try to suggest how to annotate lifetimes if a
>       lifetime-related error occurs.
>     * Debug info continues to be improved greatly with general bug fixes
> and
>       better support for situations like link time optimization (LTO).
>     * Usage of syntax extensions when cross-compiling has been fixed.
>     * Functionality equivalent to GCC & Clang's -ffunction-sections,
>       -fdata-sections and --gc-sections has been enabled by default
>     * The compiler is now stricter about where it will load module files
>       from when a module is declared via `mod foo;`.
>     * The #[phase(syntax)] attribute has been renamed to #[phase(plugin)].
>       Syntax extensions are now discovered via a "plugin registrar" type
>       which will be extended in the future to other various plugins.
>     * Lints have been restructured to allow for dynamically loadable lints.
>     * A number of rustdoc improvements:
>       * The HTML output has been visually redesigned.
>       * Markdown is now powered by hoedown instead of sundown.
>       * Searching heuristics have been greatly improved.
>       * The search index has been reduced in size by a great amount.
>       * Cross-crate documentation via `pub use` has been greatly improved.
>       * Primitive types are now hyperlinked and documented.
>     * Documentation has been moved from static.rust-lang.org/doc to
>       doc.rust-lang.org
>     * A new sandbox, play.rust-lang.org, is available for running and
>       sharing rust code examples on-line.
>     * Unused attributes are now more robustly warned about.
>     * The dead_code lint now warns about unused struct fields.
>     * Cross-compiling to iOS is now supported.
>     * Cross-compiling to mipsel is now supported.
>     * Stability attributes are now inherited by default and no longer apply
>       to intra-crate usage, only inter-crate usage.
>     * Error message related to non-exhaustive match expressions have been
>       greatly improved.
