Rust Compiler Performance Triage

Overall, a positive week for compiler performance with regressions mainly being relegated to smaller issues. This can be see by the fact that 95 test cases in real world crates were improvements while regressions only happened in 22 test cases. The largest improvement was by @nnethercote where the compilation of #[derive(Debug)] was improved. This led to an average of 1% improvement in compile times across 124 real world crate test cases.

Triage done by @rylev. Revision range: abace0..baf382

Call for Testing

An important step for RFC implementation is for people to experiment with the implementation and give feedback, especially before stabilization. The following RFCs would benefit from user testing before moving forward:

If you are a feature implementer and would like your RFC to appear on the above list, add the new call-for-testing label to your RFC along with a comment providing testing instructions and/or guidance on which aspect(s) of the feature need testing.

Approved RFCs

Changes to Rust follow the Rust RFC (request for comments) process. These are the RFCs that were approved for implementation this week:

  • No RFCs were approved this week.

Quote of the Week

JG: mem::replace / mem::swap === Indiana Jones swapping the artifact for a bag of sand in a temple

CV: except rustc would tell Indy that's a type mismatch

JG: Yes, that would be the boulder, I assume.

Older compilers were more aggressive in error reporting.

Jake Goulding and Cuviper on the Rust Zulip

Thanks to Josh Triplett for the suggestion.
