Overview

The next iteration of "The Rust Programming Language", re-written from scratch based on experience teaching Rust.

The repository is here, and you can see the rendered current draft here.

Status

We have a draft of all chapters, other than the appendix. Rust 1.18 was the first Rust to ship with a draft. We're continuing with the editing process, you can see what stage each chapter is at here.

I'd like to see unambiguous dates like 31th of Jan, 2017 anyway, since the order of the fields is different in different countries and not all dates are unambiguous.

As a new immigrant to New Zealand, I second @golddranks - having to try to guess which comes first is a pain. Something less ambiguous would be nice.
