azul 0.1.0

Azul GUI is a free, functional, MVVM-oriented GUI framework for rapid development of desktop applications written in Rust, supported by the Mozilla WebRender rendering engine


This is a name reservation for the Azul GUI framework, available at

Due to packaging problems with webrender, azul can currently not be published on itself. However, since azul has been in development for around 10 months now, it would be very mean if someone would snatch the name and I'd have to re-name and re-brand the whole project, hence the crate name reservation. Please don't mistake this as name-squatting, it's just that a lot of work has gone into this project, so I'd like to keep the name.

The expected release date for azul 0.1.0-alpha is around December 2018 / January 2019. Please see for more details. Currently you can use azul by using the GitHub mirror directly:

azul = { git = "" }
