Announcing pubgrub v0.2: a flexible version solver in Rust


PubGrub is a version solving algorithm based on conflict driven nogood learning, created by Natalie Weizenbaum for the package manager of the Dart programming language. Its goal is to compute a set of package versions that satisfies all dependencies of a project, and it aims at being faster than the alternatives, while giving better explanations when no solution is possible.

This crate is an implementation from scratch of the PubGrub algorithm in Rust. It is generic over the package and version types to provide maximum flexibility. A guide is also provided to walk you through its high-level features and internal details. Beware that it's still a WIP so API changes will continue to occur but we are now ready for community feedback.
