We have a new member on our team. Please welcome Emily Dunham! Emily will be the DevOps engineer for both Servo and Rust. She has a post about her ideas regarding open infrastructure which is worth reading.
Josh discussed Servo and Rust at a programming talk show hosted by Alexander Putilin.
- We landed a tiny Rust upgrade that caused a lot of trouble for its size. Shortly after, we landed another tiny one that brought us to 1.2.0
- Corey found a bug in

- There was some planning for the Rust-in-Gecko sessions at Whistler
- RTL is coming!
