Support From the Community 

Following his tweet, the crypto community has made some very positive responses targeted at encouraging the team to continue with its good work on the project.

“Cardano’s best days are ahead of it. 1.4 is out today. Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to the amazing team that worked tirelessly to get this update out before.”

Rust Programming Language 

A recent blog post describing the significance and advantage of the update has also listed some key features expected in the new update.

Principally, the update is going to improved support for the Rust programming language. The importance of this was further elaborated in the blog post. There it was stated that:
“Rust is a programming language used massively in various developments under iOS, Android, WebApps and similar environments. With this new update, Cardano supports an open-source Rust sandbox that will attract more developers by incorporating a more familiar programming language. It is important to note that Rust is a language that shares many features with C and C++, so developers could familiarize themselves more quickly with the project.”
