Cargo is distributed by default with Rust, so if you've got
locally you probably also have

Compiling from Source
Cargo requires the following tools and packages to build:
pkg-config(on Unix, used to figure out the
- OpenSSL headers (only for Unix, this is the
libssl-devpackage on ubuntu)

cargo build --release
Adding new subcommands to Cargo
Cargo is designed to be extensible with new subcommands without having to modify Cargo itself. See the Wiki page for more details and a list of known community-developed subcommands.
Cargo releases coincide with Rust releases. High level release notes are available as part of Rust's release notes. Detailed release notes are available in this repo at [CHANGELOG.md].
