Update to Rust 1.21.0

Welcome to Rust for Haiku

I have worked on a port of Rust to the Haiku operating system. Rust is a fast and safe programming language. And Haiku is an open source operating system that targets desktop computers.

Current version: 1.21.0

The current version of Rust for Haiku is labelled Rust 1.20.0. It is based on the official 1.20.0 rust release and it contains both the rust compiler and the cargo package manager.

Available is:

The easiest way to get started is by downloading both the runtime and the compiler packages and install it by double-clicking the package, or by manually placing it in your /boot/system/packages folder. It will not work if you put the package in your home directory. Rust expects certain libraries to be in certain places.

In order to use Rust, you either need to use Haiku's standard GCC2 hybrid configuration (x86_gcc2) or the experimental x86_64 platform.

Porting notes

The porting effort has been documented. You can find it at PortingRust.
