Rust

Rust is developed by Mozilla, the people behind the Firefox browser. It is advertised on www.rust-lang.org as

“...a curly-brace, block-structured expression language. It visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details. Its design is oriented toward concerns of ‘programming in the large’, that is, of creating and maintaining boundaries—both abstract and operational—that preserve large-system integrity, availability and concurrency.”

Rust is not yet available in the Ubuntu repositories, but as it is being developed and used by people at Mozilla, it is likely to be of interest to a few of this book’s readers and deserves a quick mention here.
