sourmash 3.0.0 released!

Officially migrated from C++ to

Release notes:

$ pip install sourmash==3.0.0

$ conda install -c conda-forge -c bioconda sourmash=3.0.0

That seems like a lot of work, that's cool though! I have a couple curious questions, if you don't mind talking about it.

What sort of optimizations do you get using Rust over C++ for calculations? Is it mostly memory safety or do you get significant speedup?

And how easy is it to build conda packages that include Rust? I don't get the impression that many Rust crates are also made into conda packages
