It looks like the maintainer of the base64 #Rust crate broke all code using the rust-bitcoin #Bitcoin Core RPC client to run on #Debian.

Trivial crates like base64 have a single job: don't change.


@stevenroose 👏 :classiclol: I saw this coming yesterday when I noticed bitwarden_rs had multiple versions of base64 in its dependency tree

how hard is it to make a base64 library people?

The base64 crate "requires Rust v1.31 or higher". WTF. How can one not have base64 code that works on all #Rust versions...


@stevenroose @feld what crate are you talking about? crates.io/crates/base64
"The minimum required Rust version is 1.27.2."
