We do this periodically to say up to date.
No major versions were crossed this time per se, but the rand is still in v0,
and their 0.7x series broke three things:
- Some distribution-related elements were moved to a separate crate, flashing a deprecation warning
- The LogNormal::new associated function now returns a Result
- Certain RNGs were updated to sample a u32 instead of usize when their upper-bound is less than u32::MAX for better portability, which changed the output for 2 tests.
Moreover, the recent use of the regex crate for ignore mechanisms prompted
some benchmarking that revealed that regex was slower at compiling big regex
than Re2. The author of regex was very quick to discover an optimization
that yielded a 30% improvement. It's still slower than Re2 in that regard, but
less so in the 1.3.6 release.
