Compiler #

This release disables incremental compilation, unless the user has explicitly opted in via the newly added RUSTC_FORCE_INCREMENTAL=1 environment variable. This is due to a known and relatively frequently occurring bug in incremental compilation, which causes builds to issue internal compiler errors. This particular bug is already fixed on nightly, but that fix has not yet rolled out to stable and is deemed too risky for a direct stable backport.

As always, we encourage users to test with nightly and report bugs so that we can track failures and fix issues earlier.

See 94124 for more details.
