Rust 1.39.0 comes with new features


Rust community has announced the release of Rust 1.39.0. One of the most notable additions to Rust, with this release, is the arrival of async-await syntax. “Async-await is a way to write functions that can “pause”, return control to the runtime, and then pick up from where they left off. Typically those pauses are to wait for I/O, but there can be any number of uses.”
