Changelog #17

Commit: aaa6961
Release: 2020-03-23

New Features

  • #3582 fetch appropriate value of OUT_DIR from cargo check. This enables rust-analyzer to work correctly with crates which use compile-time code generation. This might significantly slow-down startup time (as we need to run cargo check build), so this functionality is disabled by default. To enable, set:

    "rust-analyzer.cargoFeatures.loadOutDirsFromCheck": true
  • #3580 macro expander is now more tolerant for syntax errors, which makes code completion inside macros more robust.

  • #3623 Fill Match Arms assist now works even if some arms are already present.

  • #3607 and instructions for installing rust-analyzer from AUR.

  • #3640, #3651 assist to merge imports with a common prefix.

  • #3662 correctly part arbitrary enum discriminants.

  • #3677 include macro_rules! macros in workspace symbols.


  • #3541 correctly complete constants and paths in patterns.

  • #3671 fix infinite loop in macro expansion during completion.

  • #3674 use correct name for the library if it is renamed in Cargo.toml.
