From the article:

The existing open-source plugin, which we’ve been working on for a number of years, has served as the building block for RustRover. This plugin will remain open source and freely available on GitHub and the marketplace. However, moving forward, we will be investing our efforts into RustRover, which is closed source. on 13 Sep 2023 14:25 next collapse

It’s true, but JetBrains has been pretty reliable for a closed-source company. No doubt the enshittification will eventually set in though. on 13 Sep 2023 18:39 collapse

Hm. good to have a dedicated IDE… but terrible that it’s taking OSS contributions and turning them closed source… on 13 Sep 2023 20:34 collapse

Well, that is why some prefer a copyleft license, like the MPL.
